Advanced Ubot Tutorials – Breaking Up Your Bots – Part 2 of 2

July 21st, 2010    •   by Frank    •   Comments Off

Picking right off from the previous video, you can watch part two here.

So, as you can see from the two videos, there are some pretty clear advantages to breaking up your bots. Here’s a quick wrap up of the advantages:

  1. Very complex bots with multiple subroutines can be easily troubleshot. If you keep each bot by itself, the initial calling robot is kept very simple and to one function and the secondary robots can be also fixed on their own.
  2. The ability to reuse robots easily and effectively. If you are creating multiple apps that will touch the same functionality on a site, this is a slam dunk for re-using your robots really easily and fast.
  3. Easy expansion. Because functionality is added on, then it’s really easy to add more functionality by adding another bot to the mix.
  4. Ability to watch variables. Because you are not putting variables that are displayed right in the subroutines, you can use the ‘ui text control’ and ‘ui stat monitor’ commands to watch commands as they are modified within the subroutine robot.

So, I hope you’ve enjoyed this series. Please feel free to leave comments or ideas for more advanced Ubot Tutorials!
