    So i just learned the basics of python and apparently i have to install some other stuff so i can create some bots to automate the web browser but i looked everywhere and there is so many choices i dont know which one to choose.
    Which ones do you recommend to create some advance stuff and easy to use,
    selenium
    Ghost.py
    Twill
    Beautiful Soup
    Scrapy
    Requests
    Splinter
    Mechanize

    Hi
    I use Python and ...
    Mechanize + Beautiful Soup = for simple bot (no javascript ...etc)
    Selenium + Beautiful Soup = full browser bot (chromedriver)

    Are you going to repeat what someone said in every coding thread now? You just recommend what someone posted before. Stop increasing your post count!
