I know that the Selenium Nodes are an amazing resource for extracting all kinds of data, especially for “dynamic” websites.
But I wonder if they also allow me to publish back to a website? I have something like a content management system, which I want to populate with 100s of articles (no, I am not trying to spam, it’s just another idea from my roleplaying environment, see here).
As I am “so in love” with KNIME I wondered if it could be used to publish transformed data as well? I tried to search but didn’t really come up with some threads here (maybe I’m just using the wrong search terms)…
Thank you in advance and a WONDERFUL HAPPY NEW YEAR to everyone!
I have just seen your previous post – that’s super-amazing and I promptly put it on my read list for next year!
As my presence is required in the kitchen currently, I will only answer briefly for now: What you’re planning to do, sounds like a great use-case for the Selenium nodes. Several of our users have in fact used them quite often not only for extracting data, but also for automating tedious data input tasks.
Unfortunately I do not have a workflow which I could publicly share at the moment, but I’d be more than happy to help and support with your specific task – would you be able to share the link and some sample data of your scenario? (you can also send this directly to me to firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d rather not share it publicly).
Happy, healthy, inspiring new year for now!
thank you very much for the kind words, I really appreciate that!
I will reach out to you by email. Maybe we can create something shareable so the community would also benefit from it.
