Project description

fBrowser | Quick-start Your Selenium Project

This library was created in order to help users quick-start their webscraping project. It includes several useful functions including a browser handler, new tab functionality, and more.

Installation

$ pip3 install fBrowser

Usage

Browser Handler

You can decorate your function with a browserHandler. This will create the driver and properly quit it if an exception occurs or when the program ends.

import fBrowser
from time import sleep


@fBrowser.browserHandler()
def main(driver):
    driver.get('https://www.google.com')
    sleep(5)


main()

New Tab

Run a function in a new tab of Chrome. It will automatically close and switch contexts when it finishes executing.

import fBrowser
from time import sleep


def loadTheVerge(driver):
    driver.get('https://www.theverge.com')


@fBrowser.browserHandler()
def main(driver):
    driver.get('https://www.google.com')
    sleep(2)
    fBrowser.newTab(loadTheVerge)(driver)
    sleep(2)


main()

Login

Use this helper function to login into a site. Simply pass in your email / username and your password. (This function assumes that the input tags in the form have attributes @type=username, @type=email, or @type=password).

import fBrowser


@fBrowser.browserHandler()
def main(driver):
    driver.get(
        'https://stackoverflow.com/users/login')
    fBrowser.login(driver, email='testing@gmail.com', password='abc123')


main()

Fill Inputs

Quickly fill multiple inputs with either a single value or multiple values.

import fBrowser


@fBrowser.browserHandler()
def main(driver):
    driver.get('example.com')
    # A list of xpaths to the inputs
    xpaths = ['//*[@name="foo"]', '//*[@name="bar"]', '//@name="fooBar"']

    # Fill with multiple values
    fBrowser.fillInputs(driver, xpaths, ['value1', 'value2', 'value3'])

    # Or pass in one value
    fBrowser.fillInputs(driver, xpaths, 'hello world')


main()

Human Type

Don't want to get flagged as a bot? Fill your inputs using a human-like typing speed.

import fBrowser
from time import sleep


@fBrowser.browserHandler()
def main(driver):
    driver.get('https://www.google.com')
    chatInput = driver.find_element_by_xpath('//*[@name="q"]')
    # Will input the string at a human-like typing speed
    fBrowser.humanType(driver, chatInput, 'Hello world!')
    sleep(5)


main()
