Hi Ryan!

I've finally made this. The user can now login using their credentials. The login information is stored in the shared session which persists across the app's relaunches. There's a bar item button for login/logout, a login view and network tools for the feature.

The HNService class was modified a little bit for two reasons:

  1. It can now perform POST requests alongside GET requests.
  2. The stringByAppendingPathComponent: function used to compose a string representation of the URL doesn't work well with URLs actually. It's stated in the documentation: Note that this method only works with file paths (not, for example, string representations of URLs).. The downside of the function is that it turns "https://news.ycombinator.com" into "https:/news.ycombinator.com", and while the latter does allow the app to fetch data it doesn't use cookies stored for the former (during the login process).

I hope the changes feel well. If anything (hopefully that won't be the whole request though) isn't consistent with the app's design I would love to modify it.

@stansidel Hey man! So I took a look and this is really great! I think that I will merge this, but likely strip out some things. For starters, I would like to make the login VC a tab. Once you login, you'll see a "profile" VC that you can then look at your posts/comments from.

Is that ok? I'll make sure to leave your name in the files that are used, even if rearranged a bit.
