Data extraction from Javascript-using webpages

Hi guys,

 

Is there any way to extract data from "pages"/"parts of pages" using Javascript, via Palladian nodes?

Hi Bora,

I assue you want to extract data, which is loaded/rendered via JavaScript? Short answer: No, we do not (currently) support this. Evaluating JavaScript on web pages would require using e.g. Selenium, which is quite "heavyweight" and usually involves some more logic, than just "loading" some URL, that's why it's out of our focus for the nodes.

Best,
Philipp

Thanks, Philipp.

Best regards.
