Plustime

web automation

A Javascript program that automatically signs me up for classes each week. Made using Chrome's Puppeteer.

PROJect

origin

- Had a period where we could sign up for enrichment classes at school.

- Had to sign up every week - Very annoying...

- Therefore, I made a "web" robot to sign up the class for me.

problems

while

building

- Was brand new to any web automation/web scraping. 

- Needed to familiarize myself with GET and POST requests.

- Familiarize how to convert cURL to request post requests.

- Needed to work around a badly built signup site (reuse of IDs: meant that Puppeteer couldn't accurately target an HTML element).
