SikuliX – Automate Anything – Python Based Sikuli Scripting

What is SikuliX? 

  • SikuliX automates anything you see on the screen of your desktop computer running Windows, Mac or some Linux/Unix.
  • It uses image recognition to identify and control GUI components.
  • Besides locating images on a screen it can also run the mouse and the keyboard to interact with the identified GUI elements
  • SikuliX comes with basic text recognition that can be used to search text in images.

SikuliX supports the following as scripting languages:

  • Python language level 2.7
  • Ruby language level 1.9 and 2.0
  • JavaScript
  • You can also use it in Java programming Java aware programming/scripting language (Jython, JRuby, Scala, Clojure, …).

We will be covering scripting SikuliX with Python in this course

Note: SikuliX is a Java application, that works on Windows XP+, Mac 10.6+ and most Linux/Unix systems. For Windows, Mac and Ubuntu 12.04+ it is complete and should normally work out of the box. For Linux/Unix systems there are a few prerequisites to be setup.
