Sometimes when scraping a website I need my script to login in order to access the data of interest. Usually reverse engineering the login form is straightforward, however some websites makes this difficult. For example if login requires passing a CAPTCHA. Or if the website only allows one simultaneous login session per account. For difficult cases such as these I have an alternative solution - manually login to the website of interest in a web browser and then have my script load and reuse the login session.
