How to Build a 910-wpm Typing Bot with Just 12 Lines of Python with just 12 lines of Python.7,018 reads. The project is based on the TypingCat.com. The Typingcat.com is a web-based web-swapping tool that lets users type the text content from the web.com on the focused screen. It is then used to send a text message to the user to type what is stored inside a string variable on a focused screen. The project was created with the help of Python's Pip and Selenium.
