TagUI Users

Write flows in simple TagUI language and automate away repetitive time-consuming tasks on your computer. Tasks include those on websites (native support for Chrome and Edge), desktop apps, or the command line. The TagUI project is open-source and free forever. It's easy to setup and use, and works on Windows, macOS and Linux.

Besides English, flows can be written in 22 other languages, so you can do RPA using your native language. Check out this demo video automating data collection in 4 different languages. With the new TagUI turbo mode, you can even run your automation 10X faster than normal human speed!

Language designed for RPA

In TagUI language, you use steps like

to interact with identifiers, which include web identifiers, image snapshots, screen coordinates, or even text using OCR. Below is an example to login to Xero accounting:
type email as [email protected]
type password as 12345678
click Log in
// besides web identifiers, images of UI elements can be used
type email_box.png as [email protected]
type password_box.png as 12345678
click login_button.png

Grabbing data from a table on a website can be as easy as below (where n is the nth table on the webpage)

table n to forex_rates.csv

Moving data between TagUI and Excel is as easy as using standard Excel formula that you are familiar with

top_salesman = [Monthly Report.xlsx]August!E11

Sending a Telegram notification is trivially easy (first message @taguibot to authorise it to send messages)

telegram id Hello World. Olá Mundo. नमस्ते दुनिया. 안녕하세요 세계. 世界,你好。

Do RPA with Microsoft Word

You can use TagUI MS Office Plug-ins (demo video, sample doc) to easily create and deploy Word doc as RPA robots, and set up RPA data parameters using Excel. Enjoy a full-featured RPA IDE with toolbar of TagUI steps and tooltips, snapshot tool to automate using computer vision, task pane for settings and run output. You can also run TagUI on your phone using free Google Cloud. For VS Code users, you can install this language extension.

Ecosystem and Communities

TagUI has a bustling user community, and extended community champions create new RPA tools for their own communities, based on TagUI. Python users can pip install rpa for the #1 Python RPA package. TagUI for C# .NET and Go programming languages are being built. For event-driven RPA with thousands of connectors, check out this TagUI module for Node-RED, a popular free and open-source workflow automation tool.

For Microsoft Power Automate Desktop users, you'll be happy to know that there's 2-way integration with TagUI out of the box (for business continuity if you switch between the 2 apps). Do also check out other leading open-source RPA tools, to see if they meet your needs better - OpenRPA & OpenFlow, OpenBots, Robocorp. All of them support enterprise-grade orchestrating and running TagUI robots from their orchestrator.

TagUI Roadmap

Enterprise Security by design

Security Considerations - TagUI default implementation is an on-user-computer on-prem RPA tool that does not exist on any cloud - TagUI is not a SaaS or software on the cloud running on vendor's cloud, it runs on actual users' computers - Industry-specific certifications like PCI-DSS, HIPAA, SOX aren't applicable because TagUI doesn't store data - In decentralised bottom-up RPA, not advisable and no need for bot credentials as users are held accountable

Data Considerations - For data at rest, storage encryption would be on user's computer's OS-level as it is run on user's computer - For data in use, recommend user to manually enter sensitive info like password before letting robot take over - For data in motion, users' enterprise app websites are now https by default for secure data entry and retrieval

More Information - See this guide on enterprise installation, including whitelisting details, TagUI architecture and dependencies - With -report option, there is a summary and detailed logs of robots, with support for centralised reporting
