|lj-rssfetch -- local feed access with handling of authentication
||[Jan. 27th, 2008|05:29 pm]
Ok, if you use firefox or other local RSS reader that doesn't handle authenticated feeds you can use this Perl based fetcher to get your/your friend's Atom feeds. The program is driven by a simple configuration file (name it .lj-rssfetch.ini in your home directory on UNIX)... you will need WWW::Mechanize and Config::IniFiles installed with your perl to make this work.
; comments begin with ';'
; login to livejournal with your username, 'authuser':
; what's your passworrd, 'authpass':
; set a salt to randomize the file names
; list out journals to fetch, e.g. user1 user2 user3 ... userN
fetchlist=elo_sf friend1 another_friend
; Where should the feeds be saved?
