Is this a good idea? (Sessions & Cookies manipulation) read
I was wondering since sessions don't work well with applications (logging in from a program to download data from a website doesn't allow the session to be persistent) So I was wondering if I should set a cookie based on the current session id, store that session in the database with the current time. Then I can manipulate my script to delete sessions after so long to make them re`login, that way I can use my python program to login yet it will log them out in a certain time(possibly 24 hours or less).
So, is it a good idea to store current session in db with the current time and in the users table, then store that session in a cookie to stay logged in then delete the cookie in db, and if that session no longer exists in the database they have to re`login.
The whole purpose of this is allowing me to stay logged in, in my python application which will make things much easier for the users.
