downloading folders from google drive.

I wanted to download some course material on RL shared by the author via Google drive using the command line.  I got a bunch of stuff using wget a folder in google drive was a challenge. I looked it up in SO which gave me a hint but no solution. I installed gdown using pip and then used: gdown --folder --continue if there are more than 50 files you need to use --remaining-ok and only get the first 50. In such a case its best to download using the folder using the UI and decompress locally. Decompressing from the command line created errors related to unicode but using the mac UI I decompressed without a glitch.

The age of Selenium

Some quick notes from the 1 0th selenium meetup which took place at the IronSource offices. My interests were primarily for testing websites and the spacial use case involving "analytics" setups.  It turns out that both simple and complicated analytics setups require about six testing sessions. When working with large web sites analytics setup tend to get broken routinely. While custom alerts can help to detect large disasters, a automated testing tool is invaluable for tracking these type of failures early. Oxygen IDE The bleated Selenium IDE  (Photo credit: Wikipedia ) The meetup started with an unscheduled  lightning talk by Nachum Dimer. This, for me, was the most productive talk, quite possibly because it was just 10 minutes and so had no fluf. It covered Oxygen Ide . Oxygen is a new Selenium framework and integrated development environment. Oxygen IDE allows recording on Internet Explorer, Firefox and Chrome. which is a significant improvement cons
