A curated list of delicious Robot Framework recipes that will help you develop new test automation scripts faster, especially for beginner or intermediate level engineers.

If you need help writing Robot Framework scripts or wish to update older scripts to use newer syntax then you have come to the right place. Here we will compile and maintain recipes of working Robot Framework scripts that can be used in your domain.

In the first part of the cookbook there are many simple recipes showing how to use builtin keywords and additional keywords from both internal and external Robot Framework libraries. Towards the back of the cookbook there are complete case studies demonstrating whole projects and test automation solutions.

Notes for contributors

Contributions from the wider community are most welcome! Contributions can be either single recipes or whole case studies.

We recommend using Robotidy to help standardise the format of the Robot Framework code.

We also recommend using the Robot Framework Robocop static analysis tool to check your scripts are clean before submission. Robocop can be installed using pip:

$ pip install -U robotframework-robocop

Issues are welcome and you can use them to post ideas for new recipes or report bugs and other observations for exisiting recipes.

For larger submissions simply clone this repository, create a feature branch (or work directly on master) and submit a pull request to merge your branch. If you are not comfortable with Git workflow then simply post your submission on the #cookbook Slack channel and I will help you publish your recipe or case study.
