robotframework-httplibrary

robotframework-httplibrary is a Robot Framework test library for all your HTTP needs. It uses livetest (which, in turn uses the famous webtest library underneath).

Installation

You can install robotframework-httplibrary via pip:

pip install --upgrade robotframework-httplibrary

Usage

API documentation can be found at http://peritus.github.com/robotframework-httplibrary/, here is an example on how to use it:

Setting Value
Library HttpLibrary.HTTP

Test Case Action Argument
Example    
[Documentation] Follows a Redirect
Create HTTP Context httpstat.us
GET /302
Response Status Code Should Equal 302
Follow Response  
Response Body Should Contain generating different HTTP codes

You can view a report and a log of this test executed that looks like this:

Compatibility

This library is only tested on CPython. It might work on Jython, not sure.

Development

If you want to hack on this library itself, this should get you started:

# bootstrap development environment
git clone https://github.com/peritus/robotframework-httplibrary.git
cd robotframework-httplibrary/
python bootstrap.py
./bin/buildout

# run tests
./bin/robotframework tests/

I'm very happy about patches, pull-requests and API-discussions (as this is mostly a wrapper supposed to have a nice API)!

Changelog

v0.4.0

  • Compatible with Webtest > 2.0
  • hard-deprecate 'Set HTTP Host', will be removed soon.

v0.3.4

  • Add support for python-json-pointer >= 0.6 (if you experienced "AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'set_pointer'", you should upgrade to this version).

v0.3.3

  • add HTTPS support
  • add 'Stringify JSON' keyword
  • implicitly set correct 'Host' header

Beerware: If we meet some day, and you think this stuff is worth it (or need a more serious license), you can buy me a beer in return.
