I am trying to get the html source of a public web page using the
HTTP.request function, in such a way that it would be feasible to scrap some numeric data.
r = HTTP.request("GET", "https://www.euronext.com/en/products/bonds/NL0000168714-XAMS/market-information")
The data set I want to scrap (and only that set), is always in-between:
<strong>...</strong>, which is rather convenient. Unfortunately, the
HTTP.request response does not carry those
<strong>...</strong>. However, I can get the data, for example, by first saving the web page to a file and afterwards reading it.
I can also use
getPageSource() in Selenium WebDriver in Java, or possibly
Selenium.jl that, I believe, would call Python that calls Java. But this way of doing it, is somewhat undesirable also because one has first to open the web page so that Selenium can get page source.
Is there a simpler way of doing this in Julia?
