first of all, wget does not parse and interpret javascript.

There is 'elinks', that seems to support javascript (limited).

But then, if you give us detailed information of what you exactly do, there 
might be a solution using wget. After all, javascript might do some fancy 
stuff, but at one point it comes down to a HTTP(S) request...
