Description

GoogleChrome puppeteer is interesting project to create browser automation tools, testing tools or web scrapping. I was wondering to use it for something useful and an idea popped in about creating CLI application that can be used to send and receive messages on Whatsapp. So I went on to creating Whatspup, a name based on both Whatsapp and puppeteer.

Programming language: JavaScript
License: MIT License
Tags: Command Line Apps     Node     Console     Terminal     CLI     Puppeteer     Whatsapp    

Whatspup alternatives and similar modules

Based on the "Command Line Apps" category.
Alternatively, view Whatspup alternatives based on common mentions on social networks and blogs.

Do you think we are missing an alternative of Whatspup or a related project?

Add another 'Command Line Apps' Module

Installation

  • Clone this repository. git clone https://github.com/sarfraznawaz2005/whatspup.git

NOTE: Once you have connected by scanning QR code, your session will be saved so you won't have to scan it again and again unless you revoke from whatsapp app or by deleting tmp folder.

Commands

Changing User

You can switch chat with another user anytime by typing on console: --chat USERNAME (case-sensitive)

NOTE: USERNAME is supposed to be a person with whom you have already initiated a conversation in whatsapp. In other words, we use a selector to click that user's name from conversations list.

Clear Chat Screen

To clear chat screen, type --clear.

Options

You can set various options in config.js file.

  • You can send common emojis directly by typing :smile:, :lol:, :happy:, :love:, :wink: OR ;-), :-), <3, etc
