So I wanted to automate some of my work, my daily task includes logging to different websites and download the CSV by selecting some dimensions, metrics and date range.

So is there any open source technology available that I can use to automate all my tasks? Also, I want to do it without web scraping.

FYI: There's no API available for the data downloading.
