Send and receive datetime objects from web forms.

Project description

Datetime-Selenium allows you to send/retrieve datetime.datetime objects to/from web forms using Selenium.

Installation

$ pip install datetime-selenium

Quickstart

First, clone an example file from the Datetime-Selenium repo.

$ curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/dsbowen/datetime-selenium/master/form.html --output form.html

Let's send the current date and time to all input in the form.

from datetime_selenium import send_datetime

from selenium.webdriver import Chrome

from datetime import datetime

driver = Chrome()
driver.get('data:text/html,'+open('form.html').read())

datetime_ = datetime.utcnow()

css_selectors = (
    'input[type=date]',
    'input[type=datetime-local]',
    'input[type=month]',
    'input[type=time]',
    'input[type=week]'
)
for selector in css_selectors:
    input_ = driver.find_element_by_css_selector(selector)
    send_datetime(input_, datetime_)

You'll see the form filled in in your selenium browser.
