Question about Python GUI automation.
ndeering (2)

I am new to Python coding and am interested in using it to automate some of my work. I am currently an intern, and most of my work is data entry related, so Python seems like a great thing to learn.

However, is there any way to automate the keyboard or mouse in repl.it such as the way 'Automate the Boring Stuff' does? I have searched for this topic a lot and have received no results. I have found that REMI is a possible solution for this but have not been able to get it to work.

Before I continue trying to automate on Repl.it, is it even possible to control the keyboard and mouse?

Unfortunately, this is not possible because repl.it python programs run in a cloud machine and don't have access to your keyboard and mouse. You can still Install Python and run your code on you own machine.

I am repl.it helper. Please mark as answer and upvote if this is a good answer!

@Scoder12 Thank you, is it possible to scrape data from one website and fill out a form with that data?

@ndeering yes, if you reverse engineer the form and if they don't have any captcha checking.
