    Hello Gbatemp:
    I want to make an online html script that downloads an html form a server (nintendo server) and uploads it to other every X time.
    Can anyone help me?
    Thanks!

    pretty sure you'd have to know some PHP or JS(?). It's not possible with just HTML afaik due to it just being a markup language. What are you trying to do anyway? if you're trying to download updates, pretty sure Nintendo's server is secure and won't allow some random IP to access it.

    You're looking to make a scraper. Look into libraries like PhantomJS. I personally use Nightmare in Node.js as it works as a headless Web browser so it will run any JavaScript on the page (which is good if they're using AJAX) and it can do cool things like take Screenshots.

    I would recommend Scrapy if you don't mind delving into python a little
