LiveJournal Client Discussions
For my client, I need (among other things) to be able to read protected post in other journal than mine (i.e. friend of mine made a specific friend-only post visible to me, I want to read it using client). I could not find corresponding XML-RPC method, so I've decided to use simple HTTP. |
I did not want to reuse IE/Mozilla browser components, and started simple python script. I found that login.bml sends (md5(chal + md5(password)) as response, username in clear and empty password. So far so good. But I always get "user not found" error, which, I think, returned when there is a spelling error in username. I checked the headers and could not find whats wrong.
Can somebody help me ?
Update: resolved. API supports reading from shared journals. Good enough, at least for now.
