Yesterday in the morning i was coding a new function for the ILIAS Applet remote authentication, with the invaluable help of erny and lgs. And here it comes ClientCookie and ClientForm python modules to rescue me:
ClientCookie is a Python module for handling HTTP cookies on the client side, useful for accessing web sites that require cookies to be set and then returned later.
ClientForm is a Python module for handling HTML forms on the client side, useful for parsing HTML forms, filling them in and returning the completed forms to the server.
What i want is to make an HTTP connection to the ILIAS URL and try to authenticate in the login form, but doing it transparently to the user. Have a look at the code auth.py .
Today i’ve been doing some love on the UI, and these days i’ll try to get all things merged. I would like to have something running before going to 3rd ILIAS Conference in Zürich, 28-29 September.
