Storing and retrieving session after login with Python Selenium

A simple example by which you can get the cookies from the webdriver and pickle them and save the pickle in a file; for loading cookies you can unpickle the saved file data and add the cookies to the driver as shown on below code sample.

Getting and Storing Cookies

import pickle
from selenium import webdriver
driver = webdriver.Firefox()
driver.get('http://phpfarmer.com')
# login code
pickle.dump(driver.get_cookies() , open("PHPCookies.pkl","wb"))

Loading Cookies

import pickle
from selenium import webdriver
driver = webdriver.Firefox()
driver.get('http://phpfarmer.com')
for cookie in pickle.load(open("PHPCookies.pkl", "rb")):
    driver.add_cookie(cookie)

Very simple, isn’t it?
