Licensing of LiveJournal Code [Aug. 18th, 2005|12:42 pm]
LiveJournal Development


[mood |hopefulhopeful]

I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask but I'm sure you'll know the answer.

I am working on:


Rather than reinvent the wheel, I would like to use some code from LiveJournal. LiveJournal's webpage says that it is "open source" but I can't for the life of me find information on the site about what this means. What license is it released under? GPL? I would like to release my work under the GPL, so I hope the license is at least GPL compatible. LiveJournal's websites repeatedly state that it is open-source and that the code is freely available, but I can't find any explicit mention of what terms the code is available under. I think it would be great if you would make the answer to this question more prominent! :-)

Friends page via POP3 [Aug. 18th, 2005|01:01 pm]
LiveJournal Development



The post above describes a way for reading friends posts from any email client.

A news post dated Nov. 12th, 2003 stated that this feature was "Coming Soon", but I am unable to find further information about this feature.

What is the status on this feature? If it's finished, where can I get the details about it?

LJ and Digest-Auth [Aug. 18th, 2005|01:50 pm]

I really don't know the answer at all, so I'm going to point him here. Posted from an email I got from milchi,

Hey Jay,

I hope you have a moment. According to
LJ supports Digest Auth. I tried something like
in Mozilla and it works. However, it doesn't work with wget and
Python's urlllib2. I tested more and found that lynx and links also
don't work while w3m do work.

My question now is whether LJ's Digest Auth is broken, slightly
now-standard or uses fancy features or whether those programs are at
fault? I'd really like to get Python to log in at LJ so I can read my
stuff via rss2email.

Thanks for any help you can provide.
Martin Michlmayr

If anyone can help him, please reply. I'm pointing him to this disucssion here.
