Time for the fun stuff now. The holy grail for a lot of Internet Marketers is automation . This can be obtained through simple iMacros scripts, some PHP scripts on a server, or with a little tool called Watir using the Ruby programming language. All of these combos have their own inherent advantages and disadvantages, but that’s not something I’m going to go over here.
Python bindings for Selenium Selenium Python Client Driver is a Python language binding for Selenium Remote Control (version 1.0 and 2.0).

It is always useful to know how to quickly instantiate a browser in the command line or inside your python scripts. Every time I need to automate any task regarding web systems I do use this recipe to emulate a browser in python: import mechanize import cookielib # Browser br = mechanize.Browser() # Cookie Jar cj = cookielib.LWPCookieJar() br.set_cookiejar(cj) # Browser options br.set_handle_equiv(True) br.set_handle_gzip(True) br.set_handle_redirect(True) br.set_handle_referer(True) br.set_handle_robots(False) # Follows refresh 0 but not hangs on refresh > 0 br.set_handle_refresh(mechanize._http.HTTPRefreshProcessor(), max_time=1) # Want debugging messages? #br.set_debug_http(True) #br.set_debug_redirects(True) #br.set_debug_responses(True) # User-Agent (this is cheating, ok?) br.addheaders = [('User-agent', 'Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:126.96.36.199) Gecko/2008071615 Fedora/3.0.1-1.fc9 Firefox/3.0.1')]
