I am trying to import some tables from websites. I'm learning the rvest package. I manage to use it perfectly when I try it in wikipedia. But I fail in other websites. I am trying to import race results from various marathons.
Here is an example of my code and I recieve empty lists:
london <- read_html"Virgin Money London Marathon 2019"
resultstable <- html_elements("#cbox-main")
I have tried using many other selectors as well, none of them worked. (I'm not familiar with html language.) I also tried the selector gadget, which I couldn't manage either.
Although I already fail to copy the main data, I am also interested in scraping further data, such as the ones you get when you click on names on the main list : Virgin Money London Marathon 2019
Can you possibly help me?
