Using Selenium in the background

I’m using Selenium and chrome webdriver but when I run scripts it opens a window. Is there any way that it can access the internet without the window popping up?

from selenium import webdriver
from selenium.webdriver.common.keys import Keys
driver
= webdriver.Chrome()
driver
.get("https://ps.rsd.edu/public/")
elem
= driver.find_element_by_name("account")
elem
.send_keys("Username")
elem2
= driver.find_element_by_name("pw")
elem2
.send_keys("Password")
elem
.send_keys(Keys.RETURN)
driver
.quit()

For example, this goes to my school’s grade site and puts in a username and password but I want to do this without the browser popping up if that’s possible.

I would suggest try using headless PhantomJs GhostDriver (which is a relatively new thing). As this is the native Selenium Webdriver way of doing it.

Download PhantomJs executables from http://phantomjs.org/download.html.

driver = webdriver.PhantomJS("./phantomjs") # path to phantomjs binary
driver
.get("https://ps.rsd.edu/public/")
elem
= driver.find_element_by_name("account")
elem
.send_keys("Username")
elem2
= driver.find_element_by_name("pw")
elem2
.send_keys("Password")
elem
.send_keys(Keys.RETURN)
driver
.quit()
