Scraper, Async, Fetch

This program gets two pieces of information from my home page (https://www.bartonphillips.com/index.php).

The 'r1' looks like this:

The 'r2' looks like this:

The information is displayed below in boxes 'r1' and 'r2'. You can look at the source code by clicking on the button below.

// BLP 2023-02-25 - use new approach
// scraper-await-fetch.php
// BLP 2021-09-26 -- remove hard r1, r2 and get it from bartonphillips.com/index.php
// Demo shows how to use PHPHtmlParser to scrape a webpage.
// The demo uses an 'async function' to get two set of information from my website.
// It uses a GET and a POST 'fetch' and awaits each and then returns the two results.
// The PHPHtmlParser\Dom is a great way to scrape information off of websites. I use it to
// scrape stock information from the Wall Street Journal website and it works great.

// This demo uses my SiteClass mini-framework. Full documentation can be found at
// https://github.com/bartonlp/site-class

// Instanciate the SiteClass

$_site = require_once(getenv("SITELOADNAME"));
$S = new $_site->className($_site);

use PHPHtmlParser\Dom;

// We have two demo server function that return pieces of my webpage.
// We use 'fetch()' instead of AJAX as it uses Promises and is easier to use.

// If $_GET['page'] equals 'one'. This is a GET call from 'sql()'

if($_GET['page'] == 'one') {
  $dom = new Dom;
  // grab the file. We need the HTML not PHP so we use the 'https' protocal.
  // The returned information is just the html.
  $x = $dom->loadFromUrl("https://www.bartonphillips.com/index.php");

  // Get everything from the <section> with the id of 'others'
  $mysite = $x->find("#others");
  $ret = ['mysite'=>trim($mysite->innerHTML)]; //BLP 2021-09-26 -- remove leading and trailing spaces
  $ret = json_encode($ret);
  echo $ret;

// If $_POST['page'] equals 'two'. This a POST call from 'sql()'

if($_POST['page'] == 'two') {

  // Same as above.
