a word on the future of this repository ...
Most probably this repo will never come back to life again. So if you are interested in the further development of Sikuli either as a user or as a possible contributor, you should decide to switch to the above mentioned version.

VNCRobot version

Connects up to a VNC server instead of tying up the mouse/keyboard.

  • Example... (replace with the ip address of the vncserver)

# Then everything will have to be accessed via the new "vncscreen" object.,1))
  • You can add vncviewer options to the connection....

What is Sikuli?

Sikuli is a visual technology to automate graphical user interfaces (GUI) using images (screenshots). The current release of Sikuli includes Sikuli Script, a visual scripting API for Jython, and Sikuli IDE, an integrated development environment for writing visual scripts with screenshots easily. Sikuli Script automates anything you see on the screen without internal API's support. You can programmatically control a web page, a desktop application running on Windows/Linux/Mac OS X, or even an iphone application running in an emulator.
