Help with using Multiscrape with Form-submit to log into Lose It!

Heyoo, long time user, first time poster (please go easy on me).

I am trying to use the Multiscrape HACS integration to pull the calories I have remaining in the day from Lose It! because there is no Lose It! API available for personal projects.

Lose It! has a login form here - Lose It!

This is my Multiscrape configuration.yaml code:

  - name: Scraper McScrapeface
    resource: '' #method is not defined and defaults to GET
    scan_interval: 36000
    log_response: True
      submit_once: True
      resource: ''
        email: !secret LoseIt_username
        password: !secret LoseIt_password
      - unique_id: calories_remaining
        name: Calories Remaining
        select: "#applicationPanel > div > div > div.GCJ-IGUNGC > div > table > tbody > tr:nth-child(3) > td > table > tbody > tr > td:nth-child(2) > table > tbody > tr:nth-child(1) > td > table > tbody > tr:nth-child(2) > td > div > div > table > tbody > tr:nth-child(3) > td > table > tbody > tr > td > div > strong"

And this is the debug log:

2024-01-31 16:14:34.344 WARNING (SyncWorker_2) [homeassistant.loader] We found a custom integration multiscrape which has not been tested by Home Assistant. This component might cause stability problems, be sure to disable it if you experience issues with Home Assistant

Consider using debug logging and log_response for further investigation.

I went down a rabbit hole of headers, I’m not 100% sure what I was looking at but that could be a source of the problem.

I’m running Home Assistant v2023.9.3 on a Windows VirtualBox virtual machine.

Thanks in advance if you see this and know what’s up.

Use the log_response option as documented in the multiscrape docs to see what the server response is, and then post it here. Perhaps you just need to change the method from GET to POST.

I ended up following this post:

to get the value because the page is dynamic. Very good guide.
