I am writing my first webscraper in rails and I need to retrieve the chat history from a group I am a part of in Telegram.
I know telegram is written in React so I couldn't use mechanize so I decided to try Watir for now. I am able to have Watir login and see the group chats, but only the last 100 or so messages display unless you scroll up to display more of the history. So when I use
I only get the most recent messages. I see that Telegram has an API, but I am not sure how to use it to log in to my account and get a day's worth of chat histories from my groups. Is Watir a viable option for this kind of scraping job?
