The first non-trivial method call you make to the object will cause your default browser to pop up asking you to log in. When that process is complete, you will see a page served from http://localhost:8080/, which you can close. After that point, you won't need to log in again until your token expires (without your having called refresh in the meantime). WARNING: by default, this will store your auth token and refresh token in ~/.feedly, unencrypted. Set the config_file options to null to prevent this behavior, but you will have to log in through the web site each time you create a new Feedly instance.
