Usage 😎

wappdriver is a python package that helps you automate sending messages through WhatsApp Web.

It enables you to send WhatsApp messages programmatically, using only three lines of code.

It is very simple to use

from wappdriver import WhatsApp
with WhatsApp() as bot:
    bot.send('aahnik',  # name of recipient
             'hi send by a bot')  # message
# The name of the recipient should be in your contacts

Installation ⏬

You can easily install wappdriver from the PyPI.

pip install wappdriver

For Mac and Linux, you may need to use pip3.

Requirements 🧑‍💻

You must have the following installed in your system for wappdriver to work.

Make sure to have matching versions of the Chrome Browser and Chrome Driver. I recommend using the latest stable release for both to get the best performance.

WappDriver does not support other Browsers. Please use Chrome for a smooth experience.

Setup ⚙️

After you have installed wappdriver and the requirements stated above, you can start using wappdriver straight away.

When you will run your code for the first time, you will be asked for Chrome Driver Path. When the WhatsApp web screen loads for the first time, you have to scan the QR code from you smartphone's WhatsApp application, to log into your WhatsApp account. Learn more.
