How do I do basic web scraping?

  • is it even possible in construct?

    i just want to make an app that gets info from website for personal use (convenience/laziness) so I won't have to open my browser, go to website, press buttons, etc. I only just have to open my app instead

  • Try Construct 3

    Develop games in your browser. Powerful, performant & highly capable.

    Try Now Construct 3 users don't see these ads
  • Do you want to scrape data into variable, or literally have the app open a web link.

    If its the latter, you just need a browser control and use Goto URL.

    If its the former, I'm not sure. I don't think that AJAX will return URL data.

    it's to get info from website.

    Ex:

    I need schedule of something from site

    So I need to get:

    time

    place

    price

    So they would be retrieved as 3 columns (time, place, price) and as many rows as listed on the site

    then I would present them in the app more "aesthetically"
