Introducing ALEX V1.0, the new open-source lichess puzzle bot!

Hello everyone!
I advise you to take a look at my puzzles rating, and then come back to this topic.

The rating is obscene, isn't it?
Well, I admit that my amazing chess skills are not the reason for it, but....
ALEX version 1.0!
I wrote a simple python-selenium-based lichess puzzle bot, that will (upon activation) complete every single puzzle in lichess.
Link for downloading: ufile.io/4f81k
To use it, you've got to install Python 2.7 and its matching selenium library.
Documentation and Instructions are written within the .py file.

Tell me what you think!
(Note that I am a big fan of lichess puzzles, and created this bot only for entertainment, knowledge and studying purposes).

Solved 1003 tactical puzzles 3416 1413 1000 wins 3 losses
Do you do some of them by hand?
Or does your bot mess up 0.2991% of puzzles?

Also, how highly rated are the puzzles the bot is doing?
I know that above ~2000 I get many ~1800 puzzles that I just need to do reliably to avoid crashing my puzzle rating.


"2. Can I use an engine in casual games (or against stockfish/the puzzles/opening training)?

A: Yes. You may ONLY IF YOU LET YOUR OPPONENT KNOW YOU'RE USING ONE. If someone wants to play a computer, they can play vs. AI. They should have expectation that they're playing a human if they accept a human's challenge. You can use an engine against stockfish if you please; games against the computer are never rated. Similarly, using an engine to solve a puzzle (or help you in the opening training) is not against the rules and you will not be marked as a cheater. But, should you use an engine for the training puzzles/openings, you'll only be cheating yourself." ---- Chess_Agent (lichess moderator)

So yes, this is 100% legal.

No, the 3 mistakes I had were when I was testing stuff with the bot.
Unless an under-promotion exists in the puzzle, the bot works great. If there is some sort of under-promotion, it will not continue working - much for your benefit of watching a unique puzzle and solving it by your own

EVERYBODY STOP CHEATING WITH BOTS
