HTTP authentication for feeds with calibre

Hi Kovid,

Is there a way to use http authentication with Calibre? I have one one website I'd like to download feeds from that uses http authentication to access feeds..

Thanks Daniel

Yeah just override the get_browser method. See for example the nytimes recipe. It uses form based authentication but digest auth is even easier. See the example at http://wwwsearch.sourceforge.net/mechanize/

Thanks a mil..

In case anybody else needs this you need to amend "def get_browser()" function

def get_browser(self):
br = BasicNewsRecipe.get_browser()
# Add HTTP Basic/Digest auth username and password for website access.
br.add_password("http://domain.com", "username", "password")
return br
