Growing the TagUI Community

TagUI RPA is a free and leading open-source RPA tool by AI Singapore.
It is perfect for automating ad-hoc workflows done at individual or department levels. Whether your company is new to Robotic Process Automation (RPA) or an experienced enterprise using commercial RPA tools, TagUI provides the lowest risk to entry and lowest TCO (total cost of ownership).

This is possible because TagUI is the only RPA tool in the market that is truly free, without any pay-walls or subscriptions to access its feature set and technical support. In this article, we’ll introduce the TagUI RPA Community Group as well as share updates from the last couple of months.

1. AI Singapore Community: TagUI RPA Group

With the launch of the AI Singapore Community social network, TagUI RPA users now have a new space to congregate. As one of over 30 groups (and growing) around AI/ML, this is the place for the discussion and diffusion of knowledge for AI practitioners. All groups and posts are publicly viewable and, with a free registration, you can engage with the community, create your own groups/forums, have access to numerous free courses around AI. Some good news – there will be new courses on TagUI in the coming months!

The existing daily TagUI conversations in Telegram group chat will continue, the weekly Zoom Q&A will continue, the periodic updates through LinkedIn will continue. This social space adds another support channel for TagUI users on their RPA journeys. The forums make it easy to organise topics and give users fine-grained control over which forum and topics to subscribe for email updates. For a start, we created the topics below, and we look forward to users creating their own topics.

In particular, the content for user workflows showcase is only available there, because TagUI doesn’t have any other existing channels which can present this in an organised way. This is the best place to share your RPA masterpiece with the world!

4. Community Contributions

An acknowledgement to the technical contributors in the community and their works.

  • Allan Zimmermann from Denmark 🇩🇰 created a C# .NET version of TagUI so a C# user who wishes to create RPA in C# programming language instead of TagUI human language can easily do so. Furthermore, he created a TagUI module for Node-RED, a popular workflow automation tool for creating event-driven automations. Also, he created a TagUI Docker image that any Docker users can use to easily spin up an instance of TagUI in human language or Python.
  • Subhas Malik from India 🇮🇳 created VS Code TagUI language extension. This plug-in lets VS Code IDE users enjoy syntax highlighting, Intellisense auto-complete and more.
  • Suhail Ahmed from United Arab Emirates 🇦🇪 has started working on a Go version of TagUI, for users of the rising programming language from Google.
  • Ken Soh from Singapore 🇸🇬 made numerous enhancements for RPA for Python, the leading Python RPA package he created and maintains in his personal time. The Python package lets Python users enjoy the benefits of TagUI by making it easy to create RPA robots in Python programming language.
