Ruby browser

hi guys,

I’m trying to do a program that automates some site usage, like fetch
the
site, fill a field and “press” the send button. So, it’ll behave like a
real
browser. Is there a plugin out there ready to work ? Or, then, how can i
make a simple browser, what’s the necessaries libraries ?

Thanks!

You should take a look at webrat[1]. I don’t know about the
documentation, it wasn’t that good a while ago, but maybe they’ve
improved it.
Anyway, if you google around you will find some examples and things
that will help you because it is pretty easy to use

Hope it helps.
