We are developing an internal tool which would give few other information apart from performance view of the webpage. For the performance part I would like to use some of the information provided by the webpagetest.org REST API. This is not a commercial tool.
And we already got the API key after sending a mail to You.
The problem comes when I am trying to call the API from some other domain.
My question here is : Is this API can be called from some other domain or Is it restricted from cross-domain calls because this has to be configured on the server itself?
For example : I want to call the API[webpagetest.org/runtest.php] from mydomain.org by making an AJAX call[along with the API key and some additional parameters] and expecting the webpagetest server to send me some xml as response which I will render in my customized UI. Is it possible?
Because when I am trying to do so, the call is getting cancelled in chrome and in firefox, it’s prompting that - Redirecting to another page- but nothing happens even though I press Yes.
I know about the private instance of webpagetest but that will not solve my problem as I just want the xml response to integrate this with my application.
Thanks in advance
