I am hoping someone can help me scrape the Smart Oil website so I can get grab my oil tank sensor data and eventually get into HS4. I love the sensor it is very reliable.

I am running on Windows 10 and I have been hunting for this solution for quite a while but not many folks are working on it. Pete has helped me in the past with python script on RPi but I could never get it to work as I am not fluent in that area either. Smart Oil has a paid API but I'm a too cheap hobbyist for it and woudl need you guys to help me get it to work anyway.

A google search turns up that Home Assistant gurus have a solution that works using Multiscrape? I assume it is a HA add-on etc.

Can anyone help me cobble together a script with the following details that work for HA guys as a HTTP POST using curl, Jon00's web scraper, or VB.NET script? I would really appreciate it!

The link to the HA discussion is here https://community.home-assistant.io/...ensor/511132/8

Their scrape info is the following:

multiscrape:
- resource: 'https://app.smartoilgauge.com/ajax/main_ajax.php'
method: POST
payload: 'action=get_tanks_list&tank_id=0'
headers:
X-Requested-With : XMLHttpRequest
Content-Type : application/x-www-form-urlencoded
scan_interval: 3600
form_submit:
submit_once: False
resource: 'https://app.smartoilgauge.com/login.php'
select: ".content-container"
input:
username: your@email.com
user_pass: 'YourPassword'
sensor:
- name: smartoiltank
unique_id: smartoiltank
value_template: '{{ value_json.tanks[0].sensor_gallons }}'
unit_of_measurement: "gal"
attributes:
- name: tank_name
value_template: '{{ value_json.tanks[0].tank_name }}'
- name: last_updated_time
value_template: '{{ value_json.tanks[0].sensor_rt }}'
- name: last_updated_timestamp
value_template: '{{ value_json.tanks[0].last_read }}'
- name: battery
value_template: '{{ value_json.tanks[0].battery }}'

Thanks for looking and I appreciate any help!‚Äč
