This course is an introduction to Sikuli, a tool that lets you automate anything you see on the screen. It uses image recognition to identify and control GUI components. It is useful when there is no easy access to a GUI’s internal or source code.
What is SikuliX?
Sikuli automates anything visible on the screen of your computer running Windows, Mac or some Linux/Unix
It uses image recognition to identify and control GUI components, like a real user.
It can run the mouse and the keyboard to interact with the identified GUI elements through image recognition
Sikuli comes with basic text recognition that can be used to search text in images.
Sikuli was developed at the User Interface Design Group at MIT
Sikuli has an OCR-mode, in which image matches are performed after converting those image patterns to text. The OCR-functionality is powered by Tesseract, an open-source optical character recognition engine whose development is sponsored by Google.
