Hi,
Im looking for a module for 3.6.3 that can basically click on stuff inside of my google drive, specifically on a spreadsheet.
If you are familiar with google sheets you know there's a tab called: "Add-ons". I basically want Python to click on this, and click on the "Remove Duplicates" add-on I installed. After that I just want it to hit next, select the "Delete Duplicates" option, run the program, and then hit the close button on the program.
Any body know a module with a lot of YouTube tutorials readily available that is good for that? So if anyone has the proper information and solution about it please let me know,
Please help.
Thanks!

I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.

Hi, it's actually quite complicated question. I'm affraid, that such python module doesn't exist let alone any tutorials, because I'm sure, you would find it by now. I think, that is simply because what you want isn't possible with any module, regardless if it's in python or any other programing languege.

I'm not saying it's imposibble, but my suggestion is going to be rather for quite expirient programmers. Idea goes like this. Your spreadsheet and all described actions consistst just from some clicking in a browser. So, why not write a program to control your browser and let it do the exact clicking automaticaly for you?

If this is the solution, which will work for you, just look at Selenium. It's a framework, that allows you to do exacly that and of course you can write you controling program in python. If you'll have any questions about this framework, don't hesitate to ask.
