By default Cookies are enabled in Python Scrapy
I have this in settings.py
COOKIES_DEBUG = True
From the dicsussions with OP, it appears that this website does not send
Set-Cookie headers when using scrapy's default User-Agent string.
Changing the User-Agent string to something like this (in
settings.py for example):
USER_AGENT = 'Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/54.0.2840.100 Safari/537.36)'
fixes the issue.
