Hello there!

Today on Python weekly, We will be creating Whatsapp bot using pywhatkit.

A Little About PyWhatKit

Before we start, let me tell you about pywhatkit.

PyWhatKit is a Python library with various helpful features. It is an easy-to-use library that does not require you to do some additional setup. It can be used to:

  • Send WhatsApp messages.

  • Play a YouTube video.

  • Perform a Google Search.

  • Get information on a particular topic.

  • Converting text into handwritten text images.

Now that is you know what pywhatkit is.

Let's start coding ๐Ÿš€

Create and Activate your virtual environment.

Never forget to create and activate your virtual environment.

Why? Virtual environments create an isolated environment for Python projects.

Install PyWhatKit

This library can be installed by the pip command, open your command prompt, and type in the following command.

pip3 install pywhatkit

Create a .py file and start calling the functions

First, import the library using the command import pywhatkit and then proceed to call the functions

import pywhatkit

Add DateTime module

The DateTime module supplies classes for manipulating dates and times. This is a python package so no need to install it.

import pywhatkit 
from DateTime import datetime

Your code should look like this.

A date in Python is not a data type of its own, but we can import a module named DateTime to work with dates as date objects.

today = datetime.now()

This displays the current date and time

Convert DateTime object to an equivalent string

shour = today.strftime("%H")

In the above program, %H is a format code. The strftime() method takes the format code as an argument and returns a formatted string based on it.

%H: Is a format code for hour (24-hour clock) as a decimal number.

Add information to message a Whatsapp number

mobile_no = input('Enter Mobile Number of Receiver: ')
message = input('Enter Message you want to send : ')

Add Minute and Hour you want to send your message

hour = int(input('Enter hour : '))
minute = int(input('Enter minute : '))

Finally, send the message

pywhatkit.sendwhatmsg(mobile_no,message,hour,minute)

This function can be used to send WhatsApp messages at a certain time.

.sendwhatmsg_instantly() can be used to send message instantly.

While kit.sendwhatmsg_to_group() can be used to send messages to a group.

Your code should look like this

import pywhatkit
from datetime import datetime 

today = datetime.now()

shour = today.strftime("%H")
mobile_no = input('Enter Mobile Number of Receiver: ')
message = input('Enter Message you want to send : ')
hour = int(input('Enter hour : '))
minute = int(input('Enter minute : '))

pywhatkit.sendwhatmsg(mobile_no,message,hour,minute)

That's it, guys. You've just created your first Whatsapp bot using pywhatkit. I know it's a funny name ๐Ÿ˜‚
