I am trying to scrape the contents from a website which doesn't provides any API for the dynamically page load elements.
The website uses the jQuery load() method for loading its dom and issues a dynamic request to the server every time it calls this data.
Can I have a direct access to this data externally, from a different domain ?
Due to this constraint, I am resorting to saving the web pages completely and then parsing the data out of them . If anyone knows of a better/more scalable solution, please reply.
