node-red + edge-js + AHK

01 Aug 2020, 13:47

Automating Word, Excel, Winforms, AHK (via customized sharpAHK.dll), using red-edge installed in node-red via 'node-red-contrib-edge', running C# scripts.

Potential RPA platform using sharpAHK, NodeBot, edge-js, node-red???

Yes, you are on to something. Because when you think about it, one of the major pillars of RPA is that you can monitor the automation scripts remotely, in addition to script. If both these aspects could be clearly solved using a more AutoHotkey centric solution, seems very interesting. Though contrasting such a solution vs OpenRPA, would be interesting too.

Some code:
