URL formatting [Aug. 27th, 2006|01:09 am]
LiveJournal Client Discussions


Is there a way to format a URL for a friends page so that protected(friends-only) entries can be viewed? I suspect there are some sort of GET variables to set so that the server can log you in before you view the page, but I can't find any documentation about it. I read through the backlogs of lj_client for about an hour, too, and couldn't find anything ;) For the moment, my client uses a Gecko WebControl widget to show the user's own journal as well as their friends page. Is there a way to do the same with an rss feed? (that is, include protected entries in it). Thanks :)

Using the info swined, I was able to do this via command line with curl:

curl --digest -u YourUsername:YourPassword http://username.livejournal.com/data/rss?auth=digest

It also works for atom feeds if you use data/atom.
