LibreAutomate is a C# script editor and library for automation of tasks of any kind and complexity on Windows.
- Automate desktop and web UI using keys, mouse and API. Find and click buttons, links, images.
- Launch programs. Manage files and windows. Transfer and process text and other data.
- Hotkeys, autotext and other triggers. Auto-replace/expand text when typing. Auto-close windows. Remap keys.
- Custom toolbars that can be attached to windows or screen edges. And menus.
- Custom dialog windows of any complexity.
- The scripting language is C#. The program is a good way to learn it.
- C# code editor with intellisense. Script manager, cookbook.
- Tools for recording keyboard/mouse and selecting UI objects such as buttons, links and images.
- Also you can use .NET and zillions of other libraries. NuGet, Windows API, etc.
- Can create independent .exe programs and .dll libraries.
- Free and open-source. The automation library can be used in other programs too.
With all the libraries and tools, code-based automation can be easier and faster than no-code RPA.
This is an example of code generated by a tool. It finds and clicks a link.
var w = wnd.find(1, "LA/QM forum - Google Chrome", "Chrome_WidgetWin_1"); var e = w.Elm["web:LINK", "Shared C# code"].Find(1); e.Invoke();
Another example of code created using tools. A hotkey trigger.
hk["F7"] = o => script.run(@"\My\Youtube play random.cs");
Where can run
Windows 7, 8, 8.1, 10, 11. Editor is 64-bit only.
Is it stable
The program and the library are very young. They don't have any known problems, but need more testing everywhere.
