Cookie generaton and handling [Jul. 24th, 2004|02:14 pm]
LiveJournal Client Discussions


[mood |confusedconfused]

I'm playing with the source code of LJ.NET these days. I noticed that every communication with the LJ server uses cleartext auth, which isn't the best thing in the world. I'd like to switch over to cookie-based auth, but I'm having a problem.

From what I read of the API spec, any successful login should set an ljsession cookie - which defaults to a session cookie which is erased once the browser (or client) is closed. In C#, I can keep that as a static var that I can use for all the communication requests, no problem. The only problem is that I'm never getting that cookie. My login works fine, but the only cookie I receive after a successful login is ljuniq.

Am I doing something wrong? If anybody can help me on this one, I'd be mighty thankful.

Excellent! Thank you! I've been working on a few little utilities... not a full client, but a set of small tools.. a friends list editor, console client, etc... just haven't been able to get the damn thing to talk to the server :)

ljArchive, btw, is badass. Been playing with it all day.

glad you like it!

you should post info on your tools here, too, when they're ready.
