The (highly) unofficial Yakshed Presseclub
The idea behind presseclub is to share paywalled articles with your friends.
What presseclub does
- Presseclub is launched with a cookie store of the sites you or your friends have access to
- Every route behind
/lies/*is downloaded through SingleFile with a headless Chromium and the supplied cookies
- Presseclub saves the file locally and makes the cache available at the very same URL
Before and after:
We have no idea if this is legal. (It's probably not). It's fun though and you should set it up for your friends.
You should pay for journalism. This is not about defeating paywalls on a large scale. This is for your circle of dear friends.
DO NOT export your complete cookie store for presseclub. The best way to retrieve the cookies you need for a specific paywalled site is to:
- Start Chromium with an empty / new Profile
- Browse to the site you want to add
- Use the Get cookies.txt extension to retrieve the Cookie Store
⚠️ Presseclub may be able make requests upon your behalf, so make sure to only share it with people you trust.
