Fixing two bugs in a webscraping project in R / rvest (only 5 lines of code!)

I want to scrape some data on this page here:

[login to view URL]

which has the CSS selector ".paddTD10"

The data is invisible until you hover your mouse over an item in the table. I'm unable to extract any data (empty list returned). However, I confirmed that the CSS selector is correct, as you can tell from the yellow markings from SelectorGadget on screenshot #1. (Bug #1)

If one clicks on an item in the "symbol" column and scrapes the subpage that gets opened, the very same selector works with only one problem: The html_table() function ignores the last column (Bug #2), even if SelectorGadget marks the whole table. -> screenshot #2

I'm paying you because I want to learn from my mistakes and improve my own coding.

My priority is (from highest to lowest) fix for bug #1, if not possible then workaround for bug #1, then fix for bug #2 (I already have a workaround).

Therefore we will break down the project into these milestones:

Workaround for Bug #1: 40% of total payment

Direct fix for Bug #1: 40% of total payment -> 80% of total payment (including 40% for the workaround that is not needed)

Direct fix for Bug #2: rest (=20% of total payment)

This is my R script:


url <- "[login to view URL]"

allassetdata <- read_html(url) %>% html_nodes(".paddTD10") %>% html_table(fill = T)

url <- "[login to view URL]"

singleassetdata <- read_html(url) %>% html_nodes(".paddTD10") %>% html_table(fill = T)

Taidot: CSS, HTML
