I've posted a short article about ImageMagick in the JPluck News section.

Well, actually I have no idea. You could try a tool like Proxomitron to monitor the HTTP headers. By configuring Sunrise to use Proxomitron as the proxy, you can view the cookies that it sends for each HTTP request. You can then compare it to the requests made by Firefox.

I'm using Firefox myself and cookies work fine for me, but I'm only using them with NY Times. I know that people are using Sunrise with subscription-based sites such as Wall Street Journal and Salon.

Sunrise 0.4 will have a dedicated cookie manager. You can let Sunrise collect the cookies from Mozilla only for the first conversion. After that, it updates the cookies independently from the browser. You can also edit cookies manually, similar to iSiloX.

Thanks... unless you are actively looking for people to test this, I think I'll just wait until it's more integrated within Sunrise.

Francesco, Sunrise seems to be recognizing my cookies (created with Firefox 0.9.3). Did you upgrade upgrade to Firefox 1.0pr? Perhaps it stores cookies slightly differently... just making wild guesses here.

I just installed Firefox 1.0PR and cookies still seem to be working fine. I converted some articles from NY Times to verify.

Laurens,

There is a JXL for the NYT text edition. Will there be an SDL for it? NYT does not do a very good job with their rss feeds. They are short and outdated.

Thanks.

Okay, this is a bit off-topic. Will there be an update to the PluckThis extension for Mozilla 1.0PR? I know that it is not connected to Sunrise but PluckThis works great and it would be nice to see both Plucker and eventually Sunrise format versions...

As a special "exclusive" for MobileRead users I offer the New York Times text version SDL.

You can find it in the updated examples archive: sdl-examples-mr.zip (the link is not mentioned on my own site)

The SDL you need is "nytimes-text.sdl". It includes the majority of sections from the NYT text version.

You must have an NYT login and cookies set up for this SDL to work. (Otherwise you get redirected to the login page.)

Technical note: this SDL uses an XSLT stylesheet that strips away all the navigational clutter and leaves only the article links on the page. It also rewrites the links so that they point to the printer-friendly versions.

I just installed PluckThis in Firefox 1.0PR and it works fine. There will be no more updates to JPluck or PluckThis, though - at least not from me.

That figures! Just as I leave Palm behind, there appears a clean solution to the perennial NYT problem. I'll be waiting for that Sunrise port to PPC, Laurens! Put me on your beta tester list...

Wow! Thanks Laurens! Sunrise is turning out to be the best thing since sliced bread.

The SDL works fine. Sometimes I have to convert more than once to get a section to work because the NYT introduces an advertisement and it messes up the script. For example I tried to covert the National news section and all I got was a file that was less than 1 KB. I looked at the file in my Palm and it just said NYT Advertisement. It converted fine after the third attempt. Other sections converted fine the first time but some headlines would go to an advertisement while others would go to the story.

The advertisements are random so don't worry about it and just concentrate on developing your viewer.

Thank you for your work and contributions. Now I just need to learn XSLT so that I can covert other sites myself.

forum members:

I use mozilla firefox and Win XP. To find the cookies file to use with sunrise go to:

C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles

within the profiles folder I had another folder and within that folder I found the cookies file.
