rflint is a simple static analysis tool for robotframework .txt, .tsv and .robot files in the plain text format (space separated, pipe-separated or tab-separated). It takes as input one or more files, and runs a set of rules against each file.
Rules are simple python classes with a single method, apply. Depending on the parent class, this method will be given a reference to a test suite object, a testcase object, or a keyword object. At the moment, rflint will only look for rules in the
rules folder where rflint is installed.
Example rule that checks for duplicate testcase names within a suite:
import rflint.rule as rule class DuplicateTestNames(rule.SuiteRule): '''Verify that no tests have a name of an existing test in the same suite''' severity = rule.ERROR def apply(self, suite): cache =  for testcase in suite.testcases: if name in cache: self.report(suite, testcase.linenumber, "Duplicate testcase name") cache.append(name)
