re: Famous websites with JavaScript disabled VIEW POST

FULL DISCUSSION
 

I saw somewhere that Twitter can load with JavaScript disabled "only for some User Agents".

Indeed, making your website require JavaScript does kill many high performance web scraping.

 

Thank you for the link @Pacharapol, I'll definitely read the article.

Do you have any resource that I can check for this? Or is it in the linked article?

 

No, I cite it myself.

Disable JavaScript means you cannot use merely GET web scraping (e.g. Python requests), and read the HTML output (e.g. Python BeautifulSoup). You will need to resort to more heavyweight method like Selenium or Puppetteer (Chrome engine).

Excellent. Thanks for the info.
