No API? No problem! Fake it with browser automation & web scraping

Great article! I’m currently working on some stuff that’s run up against its boundaries due to lack of APIs.

The thing that has me worried about security with web-scraping is this answer from Quora about how stores such user credentials (which is pretty intense):

What are your thoughts on security? I noticed your #1 todo for BingeWatcher is “Add front end for user registration & hide sensitive user data.”, which is great, but ultimately at the end of the day you have to store usernames and passwords (which are less expendable than API tokens) in a DB, right?

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
