I'm trying to scrape the data that is stored in the localStorage of a webpage programmatically.
I can get this data in the format I want by going into the console of the webpage, and typing in "localStorage.getItem('THE ITEM NAME'), but I want to do this programmatically every period of time. Is there a way to do this from inside matlab without abusing the copy/paste system?
NOTE: I CANNOT simply scrape this using webread and parsing the HTML, as this will return only the default values on the webpage, not the constantly updating values.
