offers a free developer addition (from the website: "Developer;Free;£0 forever;free for your personal use;limited by captchas". I think the expiration date in the .png below refers to a trial or something, but I guess I'll find out in July
). Very interesting indeed. I've completed the beginner tutorials, takes less than an hour.
Some things that set this apart from a lot of the RPA offerings out there are 1) heavy use of scripting as opposed to drag-and-drop/WWF-type entries, 2) its own unique scripting language (I do mean unique, see the GIF - those hearts indicate a variable and are entered by hitting Ctrl-4. All the special entries have keyboard shortcuts like this), and 3) inline C# macros (The little "⊂⊃" brackets as in "⊂System.DateTime.Now.ToString(♥format)⊃" below surround a C# macro).
I'm still exploring this but calls to e.g. System.Windows.Forms work (sometimes with errors for me so far that appear to be related to return values). I believe this will be able to call AutoHotkey.dll at some point; there is a free SDK to download from github.
I'm trying to compile it with VS 2019, but it is throwing errors related to "Microsoft.VisualStudio.CoreUtility" and "Microsoft.VisualStudio.Threading", both of which were built on higher .NET versions than the SDK requires. I'll try to get that worked out and then edit this post. The platform appears worthwhile even without the SDK, though. Almost everything just works right out of the box. The program is a single executable. You have to jump through a few minor hoops to get your license, but all in all it's really easy.
