    Project mention: Beautiful is better than ugly, but my beginner code is horrible | | 2023-10-21

    Well, I work with software quality and despite not having a strong foundation in automation, one fine day I decided to make a change. I have been working with Robot Framework for a few months - and that's when I got a taste of the power of python. Some time later, I dabbled a little with Cypress and Playwright, always using javascript.

    Project mention: DCSAutoMate: a program to automate cold starts, and anything else in the cockpit | /r/hoggit | 2023-02-09

    My program would not be possible without DCS BIOS (specifically the Flightpanels fork, which is still actively maintained), so a special thank you to the contributors to that project. Also thanks to the creator of, and contributors to, pyWinAuto, another essential program for many of my startup scripts. I would also like to credit DiCE and DCSTheWay for some inspiration for what is possible, even though I ended up taking a different path.

  • tox

    Project mention: PEP 582 rejected - consensus among the community needed | /r/Python | 2023-03-28

    Project mention: Thoughts on AsyncIO | /r/Python | 2023-06-11

    Errbot is a chatbot, a daemon that connects to your favorite chat service and bring your tools and some fun into the conversation.

    Project mention: Building a Virtual Machine Inside ChatGPT | | 2022-12-03

    This reminds me of a time 10 years ago when the company IRC channel had a bot that was able to interpret python and output the result. We got nerd-sniped for a few hours trying to make the bot interpret its own output as input again. Fun times.

    This ChatGPT thing looks like a box that has been opened and cannot be closed again.

    Btw, that chatbot from my anecdote eventually evolved into errbot.

  • AutoKey

    AutoKey, a desktop automation utility for Linux and X11.

    Project mention: Learn AutoHotKey by stealing my scripts | | 2023-08-21

    Project mention: [GitHub Action]: Wrappers for sqlmap, bbot and nikto | /r/cybersecurity | 2023-05-29
