Get Test Ethers using Selenium
I need some test ethers for Rinkeby and found out that the faucet is not working (I also don’t like that you have to tweet to get the ethers):
Then, I found https://www.rinkebyfaucet.com/, which gives 0.1 testing ether for each address per day:
I wrote a program to control the browser (via Selenium) to get test ethers and scheduled the program to run every 24 hours using AWS EC2. Now, I am getting some test ethers automatically every day :).
The code repo can be accessed here.
I use this program to illustrate the followings:
- - Automate browsers using Selenium and avoid being detected as a bot
- - Use
.envto manage environment variables
- - Send emails using SendGrid
- - Schedule scripts using
- - Deploy scheduled Selenium tasks on AWS EC2 instances
