OverDrive API support script

Bug Description

Evergreen 2.12 adds OverDrive API integration. Working with the API can be a bit cumbersome, so here's a support script to make it easier:


This is a command-line tool that allows you to:

- generate a base64-encoded client authorization token to be used as a value for the "OverDrive Basic Token" org unit setting;

- send a request to the OverDrive API to confirm that your credentials are valid (and that the API is currently available);

- test whether a specified patron is authenticating successfully; and

- submit custom requests to arbitrary API endpoints.

It's likely to be useful for anyone supporting a system with OverDrive API integration enabled.

I have been looking at Overdrive issues and wished there was a command line tool to send API requests to Overdrive and view the response. Then I found this LP bug. I think it would be helpful to include this testing tool in the Evergreen support-scripts directory.

I have tested this code and consent to signing off on it with my name, Martha Driscoll and my email address, <email address hidden>.
