Description from store The combination of classical browser automation with modern computer vision makes the UI.Vision RPA software (formerly Kantu) the powerful and popular solution to automate web and desktop apps. UI.Vision RPA software combines three robotic process automation (RPA) tools into one: (1) Visual Browser Automation and UI Testing The visual UI testing commands of UI Vision help web designers and developers to verify and validate the layout of websites and canvas elements. UI Vision can read and recognize images and text inside canvas elements, images and videos. UI Vision can resize the browser's window in order to emulate various resolutions. This is particularly useful to test layouts on different browser resolutions, and to validate visually perfect mobile, web, and native apps. (2) Visual Desktop Automation for Windows, Mac and Linux UI Vision can not only see and automate everything inside the web browser. It uses image and text recognition to automate your desktop as well (Robotic Process Automation, RPA). UI Vision can read images and text on your desktop and click, move, drag & drop the mouse and simulate keyboard input. The desktop automation feature requires the installation of the free UI Vision XModules. This is a separate software package available for Windows, Mac and Linux. It adds the “eyes” and “hands” to UI Vision. (3) Selenium IDE++ UI Vision includes Selenium commands for general web automation, web testing, form filling & web scraping. But Kantu has a different design philosophy then the classic Selenium IDE. On the one hand it is a record & replay tool for automated testing just like the classic Selenium IDE, but even more it is a "swiss army knife" for general web automation like screen scraping, automating file uploads and autofill form filling. It has many features that the classic IDE does not (want to) have. For example, you can run your macros directly from the browser as bookmarks or even embed them on your website. If there’s an activity you have to do repeatedly, just create a web macro for it. The next time you need to do it, the entire macro will run at the click of a button and do the work for you. UI Vision RPA is intended as an Open-Source alternative to iMacros, UIPath and Selenium IDE, and supports all important Selenium IDE commands. When you invest the time to learn UI Vision RPA, you learn Selenium IDE at the same time. UI Vision includes many features that are not found in the classic Selenium IDE, such as the ability to write and read CSV files (data-driven testing), visual checks for UI testing, image comparison, file download automation, OCR screen scraping, PDF testing and the ability to take full web page and desktop screenshots. (API) Integrate with your favorite tools via command line UI Vision has a detailed command line API. This allows you to integrate UI Vision with any other application. For example, UI Vision is often integrated with Jenkins and CI/CD tools or the Windows task scheduler. UI Vision can be automated and controlled from any programming or scripting language, for example Python or Powershell. UI Vision web macros can be combined/used with other extensions such as Tampermonkey, Adblock, uBlock, NoScript, Ghostery, Video DownloadHelper, DownThemAll or LastPass. Happy Automating!

  • (2020-09-18) xXBunnyXx: Worked like a charm!
  • (2020-09-03) Florentin Zachary: Extremely useful, love it!
  • (2020-09-01) william kisman: Super annoying, this plugin will DELETE all your macros work when it update. You have to keep running backup after you done some work. SUCH A SERIOUS BUG. This is the second time that my macros are gone !!! This project is very buggy, it also crashes often before. This is like a university student project despite the nicer design look.
  • (2020-06-26) Jasun Dole: Awesome! Better than the desktop browser automation tools I tried, quick to create working solutions. The only complain may be the delivery and packaging, it is not easy to share a macro with others.
  • (2020-04-09) Test Hours: Worked ok sometimes, but more trouble that it was worth. Breaking point was when it started throwing JS console errors while I was working on a website and had me digging around trying to figure out why my code was erroring out now.
  • (2020-03-18) Philyshark7: XClick did not click on the correct object, It always missed about an inch up.
  • (2020-03-17) song hao: In Chinese, this is a "god tool", it is easy to create our crawler, no necessary to know any computer language, but you should know a little html syntax.
  • (2020-02-16) Marie Ohio: Thanks for your good work kantu
  • (2020-02-04) Attila Nagy: Error #101: UI.Vision RPA is not connected to a browser tab very useful, this is the third automatization plugin which actually doing nothing
  • (2020-01-19) raining dogs: it was working great but lately has been crashing since the last update. needs to be "reload".
  • (2019-12-23) Kevin Dollabillz: I have only given a review Twice in the 20 years i have been online. This plugin is genius. Works far far better than any other so called automation plugin. Keep up the good work bud , do you have this on github?
  • (2019-12-03) Thom Brem: Exactly what I was looking for
  • (2019-11-27) COD Fanatic: Can I use this to mass delete pictures on Facebook ?
  • (2019-11-21) Cris Fuhrman: Doesn't work on Facebook (at least recording macros does not yield anything). I wanted to automate the "hide ad" steps, which are legal commands in Facebook when you don't want to see ads from any more from an advertiser. Recording the clicks yields no events. Even trying a visualAssert won't work, as when I try to Select the area, I get an error: "Not able to take screenshot on the current tab". I realize it's probably Facebook being super stealthy, but wanted to let others know not to waste their time here. Gave 3 stars even though I didn't really like it, because the UI looks more intuitive than others tools I tried.
  • (2019-10-30) Glenn F: After researching, I decided on UIVision because it's open source, work's offline (high security), doesn't need a "university" to learn, and when the time comes from heavier use is reasonably priced to extend. Most issues I encountered I solved by searching the docs and forums. Thank you to the developers!
  • (2019-10-01) Garth Baker: There is something wrong with this Extension. It always leaves an error in my console. This is really annoying as I use my developer cosnole everyday and everyday I have to see this error. content_script.js:2803 Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'recordClickType' of undefined at HTMLDocument.onClick (content_script.js:2803) I would have used your extension but now I won't because not only does your extension have bugs. But I have had this thing on my chrome for a long time because I never got to debugging my extensions, and in all the time I had it no update for this bug was made. It's a simple thing to notice you have errors in your console as a developer, you guys should care more for your product.
  • (2019-09-12) Gul Murjani: The team at UI.Vision has been continuously ehancing this add-in. There is an active user community forum where you can get help, suggestions, tips.
  • (2019-09-12) Fabian Feuermacher: Super unstable extension, not yet ready for serious projects. I've just imported Macros which can't be edited. When I start them, some test macros are executed. After removing all configs, a part of them reappears after each browser restart. For automated execution I have to use the generated HTML page from Kantu to automatically call a macro folder. The most stable method was calling it from a browser extension which reopens the page once a day. Sometimes Kantu can't initialize the browser window and the "open" command fails and I have to manually restart the Browser. It's a huge botch job. Error handling for groups would be very nice instead of just skipping a Macro which threw an exception. Command naming was disimproved as it is still inconsistent. For example: "if_v2" should be named "if_Sandbox"! At the moment I regret having implemented several functions with Kantu instead of Selenium, which I had used in the last projects.
  • (2019-09-11) Nadeem Ahmed: Working like a charm, Love this extension so far, lets see how far it gonna go
  • (2019-08-18) Invincible Titan: I dont know why it says "[error] in parsing Codes.json: Cannot read property 'toLowerCase' of undefined" when ever I try to import .json
  • (2019-07-28) Maron Studios: Getting "aw snap" chrome error sometimes, I have also purchased pro edition but it's so frustrating. I have posted the issue on stackoverflow: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/57241974/chrome-keeps-crashing-when-running-chrome-automation-extension
  • (2019-07-06) Alexander Schikora: Just a copy of Selenium 1, but for a 5.0 really undeveloped. UI is same as Selenium 8 years ago and full of usability issues. Also many problems like "Cannot read property 'tab' of undefined" and other very helpful messages. If you wanna be productive, don't play around with the 90s.
  • (2019-05-31) Juil Yoon: Seems to work well, but was having trouble getting XClick to work, even in the built-in demo.

    Hello, the extension is recording macros just fine but the play button doesn't seem to do anything when I press it.

  • (2020-01-27, v:5.3.10) Ben B: Running from bookmarks
    Thanks for this great extension. I run the extension from Bookmarks, and at the end of the program it closes the extension, this causes a delay each time I run something as the extension 'boots up'. Is it possible to leave the extension ready and running at all times? If not is this something you would consider implementing please? Thanks again!

  • (2019-06-03, v:4.2.6) Tom Lewis: two Verifyelementpresent in a row not working
    I have two VerifyElementPresent statements in my script. both work individually but if I put them back to back, only the first one works. the second fails. this is even true if I flip them, ie reverse the order. always the first one works, the second fails. by fail, I mean that the !statusok does not have the proper value. happens like this 100% of the time. V4.2.6 thanks { "Command": "verifyElementPresent", "Target": "xpath=//*[@id=\"exchange_availableunits_1\"]/table/tfoot/tr/td[1]/div", "Value": "" }, { "Command": "echo", "Target": "${!statusOK}", "Value": "" }, { "Command": "verifyElementPresent", "Target": "id=errorMessageContainer", "Value": "" }, { "Command": "echo", "Target": "${!statusOK}", "Value": "" },

  • (2019-04-09, v:4.1.12) Kevin Lee Smith: Automating LinkedIn
    I am trying to automate LinkedIn but button presses are not happening becasue linkedin uses dynamic button id, and so kantu can't locate the button that needs to be pressed. Can kantu record what I am doing but instead of recording the id of the button clicked (as it does now) it finds and locates it in a different way? Like finding the button with the same image as the time it was recorded?
