Hi everyone! Today I’m building a text-to-whatsapp python app
Bellow, I have the code, and I will explain everything in the comments.
Oh, but first run the following commands:
$ pip3 install web-browser $ pip3 install pyautogui
And here we have our code:
import webbrowser # import the webbrowser library, see line bellow import pyautogui #import the library that will simulate clicks import time # for sleep msg = input("Message: ") phone = input("Telephone number: +") sim = input("Press enter to send") # Verify webbrowser.open("whatsapp://send?text=" + msg + "&phone=" + phone) # Open whatsapp's URL protocol. This will open the Whatsapp app and open the send dialog time.sleep(9) #Give time for the program to execute pyautogui.click(1870, 984) # Send message (simulate click on send button) time.sleep(1) # wait 1 sec pyautogui.click(1900, 4) # simulate click to close whatsapp
To use this code, you must have Whatsapp installed and a 1536x864 (width x height screen. If you don’t have a screen of that dimensions, open WhatsApp, execute the following code, and immediately position your mouse over the close button and the send button of WhatsApp. The program sleeps 5 seconds after execution. Then, change the X and Y coordinates of the pyautogui.click() functions to the results.
import pyautoguiimport timetime.sleep(5) print(pyautogui.position()) # Gives you: _Point(x=XXX, y=XXX)_
Thanks for reading!
