Hello RStudio Community!
I have a simple web scraping script that would log into bill.com and download a few reports for me. However, it appears they have updated their login page. It use to load right away and I was able to extract the form. Now when I go to the log in it shows a loading bar THEN the website loads. My apologies for not knowing what this is called. I would love to learn what this is called! When I look at my session made by
html_sessions() and construct the HTML form of it I am greeted with the spinning wheel that disappears after a few seconds, then nothing loads.
I believe that it is trying to load or call something. I want to know if anyone has a way to get the session to load past this? I just need to login, that's all! So any other methods for logging in so I can navigate the site are also good with me
RSelenium is not a possibility sadly, my work environment does not allow the dependencies needed to get it up and running.
library(rvest) url <- "https://app.bill.com/neo/login" (bill_session <- html_session(url)) #> <session> https://app.bill.com/neo/login #> Status: 200 #> Type: text/html #> Size: 35411 (bill_form <- html_form(bill_session)) #> list()

Thanks in advance to any resources and/or solutions to move past this hurdle!
