Web client, https and session management

Discussion in 'Python' started by Yannick Turgeon, Jul 12, 2005.

  1. Hello all,

    2-3 years ago, I did a program in perl. Now I have to modify it and I
    want to rewrite it from scratch using Python.

    The program is doing this:
    1- Load Yahoo login webpage (https)
    2- Log into Yahoo website using my personal login and password.
    3- Grasp and extract some information from my mailing lists messages
    (http, not https).

    My questions are:
    - Is it possible to do this using Python?
    - How?

    To acheive point #3, which is the goal, my web client has to manage
    session (because of the login aspect). This is the part I don't know
    how it's working. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Yannick

    You might want to take a look at the ClientCookie package.
