As with many coding languages all you need to do is to create scripts using a text editor. Python script files will have a .py extension.
This then allows the Python interpreter to be run and a .py file run directly from the command prompt.
To run your first Python script copy the code below into a text file e.g website.py
import rpa as r # use init() to start TagUI, it auto downloads TagUI on first run # default init(visual_automation = False, chrome_browser = True) r.init() # use url('your_url') to go to web page, url() returns current URL r.url('https://verdapress.uk') # wait 5 seconds before closing the script/browser r.wait(5) r.close()
From the command line type:
If all is OK a browser will launch and the VerdaPress website will be displayed.
The lines starting with a # are comments used to explain the code
Nearly as easy as working with TagUI but unleashes a lot of additional Python power.
