I have not found any python based solution which I think is kinda odd given that it is broadly used for webscraping on a huge scale.

So far all solutions are based on a headless browser which gives terrible performance or are not under development any longer.

What I have tried:

I´ve tried html_requests which is buggy, didn´t work and also uses headless chromium.

My current approach is to use PyQt5 but the data I want to scrape is in a login area and I don´t know how to pass a session from requests to pyqt5 webengine.
class Client(QWebEnginePage):
    def __init__(self,url):
        global app = QApplication(sys.argv)
        self.html = ""

    def on_load_finished(self):
        self.html = self.toHtml(self.Callable)
        print("Load Finished")

    def Callable(self,data):
        self.html = data

url = ""
client_response = Client(url)

Maybe, you can fill in the username/password (if you can execute JavaScript) and create a new session there. That way you do not need to pass the session around with each execution.

But that might be considered spam by the server.
