Automate configuration of mp-destination and token

At present,ย Indiepaper for macOS requires that the user manually configure their target micropub endpoint and a bearer token. This is nice and explicit, but it isn't a particularly good user experience. It would be better if configuration was automated.

Currently, I am thinking that I should add auto-configuration via a URL handler for the macOS app. Something like this:

`indiepaper:configure?micropubTargetURL=https://aperture.p3k.io/micropub&bearerToken=ASDF`

Then, when clicked, the link would launch Indiepaper for macOS, store the configuration, and let the user know that they're all set.

 

The simplest option would just be to let people manually configure Indiepaper by having them enter their Bearer token and Micropub Endpoint from Aperture.

I think @aaronpk is considering making it possible to IndieAuth directly with a Microsub channel in Aperture, which would provide a better experience eventually. In the meantime a manual configuration option would still be useful.
