    Hi, I'm a developer but I'm new to coding bots/spiders.

    I've built a simple one that does pinterest following/unfollowing in python using selenium.

    What do most people use for their bots? libraries/languages/frameworks?

    Try mechanize for python if the site does not require JavaScript. Selenium is overkill if you don't need all the capabilities it brings.

    Agreed with using Python, a brilliant programming language and is easy to use.
