#3456 closed defect (fixed)

Browse: authenticate with schoolserver

Reported by: manuq Owned by: manuq
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: Browse Version: Git as of bugdate
Severity: Unspecified Keywords: 12.1.0, olpc-test-passed
Cc: erikos Distribution/OS: Unspecified
Bug Status: Unconfirmed


Create a HTTP Cookie to authenticate with the Schoolserver.

Epiphany is as well using the 'cookies.sqlite' database, we can reuse that, and use libsoup for the management. We get the session with WebKit.get_default_session(), see embed/ephy-embed-single.c and lib/ephy-profile-migrator.c for a migrator.

The original code in Browse, that stays intact in, should do the cookie and store it in a 'cookies.sqlite' database, if the setting '/desktop/sugar/backup_url' in gconf is set.

I'm trying to port Epiphany code, but SoupCookieJarSqlite [1] class is not available through Python bindings. I can however see the parent class and the sister class SoupCookieJarText:

from gi.repository import Soup
parent = Soup.CookieJar()
sister = Soup.CookieJarText('cookies.txt')

Thanks to Daniel to discover that SoupCookieJarSqlite lives in SoupGNOME.CookieJarSqlite . Sometimes this bindings are not very intuitive.

Sent a patch to the list that adds cookies in Browse persistent between sessions, using the SQlite database that was previously used.

Let's test with an XS how it behaves.

Reopening after testing with a XS. After registering with a schoolserver Browse does not start. Attaching the traceback.

Seems that we introduced the bug in the JSON API port, 8b7a3b5cebb8ed7ead60841d052c02753d09ac34 -- cjson.encode was accidentally renamed to json.loads instead of json.dumps .

Also the cookie was being wrongly attached to the backup_uri, making a better uri using the jabber server now. Tested with an XS, it autologins. Also tested that handles jabber server re-registrations. Patch sent to the list.
