Zip Images and Upload them to Google Drive on Windows OS Tutorial

This tutorial will show you how to zip files on your file system and then upload them to Google Drive.

Please accept marketing-cookies to watch this video.

Setup

Prerequisites

info
  • You are working from Windows Operating System
  • Create a folder askui on your desktop
  • Copy some images to it
  • Change the view mode of the folder to miniature so the images show a little preview
  • You have to be logged in into your Google Account
  • Link to a Google Drive Folder
  • Desktop icon with the name Google Chrome that opens Google Chrome

Test

After running the npx askui init command as described in the setup you will have a file test/my-first-askui-test-suite.test.ts. In this file, add a new test inside the body of the callback passed to the describe function:

describe(/* a string identifying the test suite */, () => {
... (other tests)

it('Should upload screenshots folder on google drive', async () => {

});
});

Open the Folder askui

Next, we want to click on the folder where our images are stored and open it.

await aui.click().text().withText('askui').exec();
await aui.mouseDoubleLeftClick().exec();

Select All Images and Zip Them

Select the first image and then use the shortcut Ctrl + A to select all images in the folder.

// The text to insert here should be something in the opened explorer window.
// Usually there is 'This PC' or 'Quick Access' there.
// Watch the video if you are not sure how the selector works.
await aui.click().image().nearestTo().text().withText('This PC').exec();
await aui.pressTwoKeys('control', 'A').exec();

await aui.mouseRightClick().exec();
await aui.click().text().withText('Compress to Zip file').exec();
await aui.type('askui screenshots').exec();
await aui.pressKey('enter').exec();

Open Google Chrome

Now we minimize the window and find the shortcut with the word Google on the desktop. The mouse pointer moves to it and double-clicks to open it.

await aui.click().icon().withText('minus').nearestTo().icon().withText('stop').exec();
await aui.click().text().withText('Google').exec();
await aui.mouseDoubleLeftClick().exec();

After opening Chrome the Google search page appears if you do not use profiles. The Google Drive-Link will be typed into the search field and thus opened when Enter-Key is pressed.

Do not forget to replace <Your Google drive link to the folder!

// Omit this step if you do not use profiles in chrome
await aui.click().text().withText('<Your profile>').nearestTo().text().withText('work').exec();

await aui.typeIn('<Your Google drive link to the folder').textfield().contains().text().withText('Search Google or type a URL').exec();
await aui.pressKey('enter').exec();

Find Zip-File and Upload

Within the Google Drive folder, a mouse-right-click opens the context menu. There we click on File upload, navigate to our zip-file location and upload it.

await aui.mouseRightClick().exec();
await aui.click().text().withText('File upload').exec();
await aui.click().text().withText('Desktop').exec();
await aui.click().text().withText('askui').exec();
await aui.pressKey('enter').exec();
await aui.click().text().withText('askui screenshots').exec();
await aui.click().text().withText('Open').exec();

Complete Code

describe(/* a string identifying the test suite */, () => {

it('Should upload screenshots folder on google drive', async () => {
await aui.click().text().withText('askui').exec();
await aui.mouseDoubleLeftClick().exec();

// The text to insert here should be something in the opened explorer window.
// Usually there is 'This PC' or 'Quick Access' there.
// Watch the video if you are not sure how the selector works.
await aui.click().image().nearestTo().text().withText('This PC').exec();
await aui.pressTwoKeys('control', 'A').exec();

await aui.mouseRightClick().exec();
await aui.click().text().withText('Compress to Zip file').exec();
await aui.type('askui screenshots').exec();
await aui.pressKey('enter').exec();

await aui.click().icon().withText('minus').nearestTo().icon().withText('stop').exec();
await aui.click().text().withText('Google').exec();
await aui.mouseDoubleLeftClick().exec();

// Omit this step if you do not use profiles in chrome
await aui.click().text().withText('<Your profile>').nearestTo().text().withText('work').exec();
await aui.typeIn('<Your Google drive link to the folder').textfield().contains().text().withText('Search Google or type a URL').exec();
await aui.pressKey('enter').exec();

await aui.mouseRightClick().exec();
await aui.click().text().withText('File upload').exec();
await aui.click().text().withText('Desktop').exec();
await aui.click().text().withText('askui').exec();
await aui.pressKey('enter').exec();
await aui.click().text().withText('askui screenshots').exec();
await aui.click().text().withText('Open').exec();
});
});

To run this automation use the npx jest test/my-first-askui-test-suite.test.ts --config ./test/jest.config.ts command.
