alertWords : The words for which the script need to send a message (To customize the message go to line 126)

subjects : Dictionary of timetable.

classes : Google meet links for all subjects


# WHEN THESE WORDS ARE TRIGGERED A MESSAGE WILL BE SENT
alertWords = [ "your_name", "are you there", "unmute yourself", "say something", "can you hear me"]

# TIME TABLE HERE
subjects = {'monday' : ['UNIX', 'OOAD', 'CD', 'OS', 'DBMS'],
                'wednesday' : ['CD', 'OOAD', 'OS','DBMS', 'OS'],
                'friday' : ['OOAD', 'PEHV', 'CD',  'OS', 'UNIX'],

                'CD':'link_to_sub',
                'PEHV':'link_to_sub',

  3. That's it. There are 3 options in the script

  • get today periods

Returns list of periods today

   class -t

   class subject_name
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
  • automate today classes

Opens an automated chrome browser and joins all periods on the specific date automatically
