aliexpress data extraction in "product description"

Post by bbcrew » Sat May 06, 2017 5:12 am

hi,

i try to scraping aliexpress product page to get "product description" tab section.

https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Vfemage ... 72852.html

there is page i need to get "product description"

i inspect this section as TAG POS=1 TYPE=DIV ATTR=class:description-content EXTRACT=HTM

however, an extract result was contain following only:

<div class="ui-box-title">Product Description</div>
<div class="ui-box-body">

<div class="description-content" data-role="description" data-spm="1000023">
<div class="loading32"></div>
</div>

</div>

it seems they hide a HTM content or using any javascript to hide.

is there any method to reveal a content when scraping?

thank
