Using Selenium to parse a timetable

2016-09-27 17:31 +0200

The University of Greenwich portal offers a link to view your own timetable for any week or term. Even though it is useful, it would have been even more useful if it had a way of downloading the full timetable as an iCalendar file to import in calendar applications such as Google Calendar (other apps are available). I like being able to quickly access my calendar from my phone, but I am too lazy to copy the timetable to a piece of paper (which is what a friend suggested), therefore I wanted to try implementing a script to automatically convert the timetable to a .ics file.
