Hi, Michele,

there are three recorders available.

The maxq-based one that comes with twill is not very usable, although it
will at least track your page visits.

Ian Bicking wrote a TCPWatch-based recorder that is embryonic:


I plan to extend this recorder and incorporate it into twill for the
beta release (v 0.9), but there's no due date on that; I'm focused on
the PyCon stuff for the next week.

Finally, Matt Harrison has written something to convert TestGen4Web
output into twill scripts:


I haven't tried this out, because I don't use TestGen4Web, but my guess
is that this would be the best place for you to start.

HTH!  I should really put this on the twill page, eh?
