Welcome to Helium’s documentation!

Helium is a Python library for automating web sites. It is based on Selenium-python. Selenium is great, but difficult to use. Helium wraps around Selenium to give you a simpler API. Helium’s name comes from being a lighter chemical element than Selenium.

For a quick overview of Helium’s features, please see the project home page. Here, in the documentation, you will find a more comprehensive reference.
