As far as I know:

Pharo has event recorder that helps automate within image… however the
bigger problem here is interaction with the environment, which is a big
problem cross-platform.

This is all assuming that you _must_ click on it and you can't just
retrieve-html/parse/extract/download/repeat which is doable in Pharo with
Zinc and some non-validating parser.

If you don't find anything, you can take a look at PyAutoGUI
https://pyautogui.readthedocs.io/en/latest/ (or xdotool on linux).

I believe Kilon worked on some python bindings from Pharo? It would be
interesting to ask him what was that exactly… maybe it could be connected
to this lib.
