Genie - Main package for Genie infrastructure

Project description

Genie is both a library framework and a test harness that facilitates rapid development, encourage re-usable and simplify writing test automation. Genie bundled with the modular architecture of pyATS framework accelerates and simplifies test automation leveraging all the perks of the Python programming language in an object-orienting fashion.

pyATS is an end-to-end testing ecosystem, specializing in data-driven and reusable testing, and engineered to be suitable for Agile, rapid development iterations. Extensible by design, pyATS enables developers start with small, simple and linear test cases, and scale towards large, complex and asynchronous test suites.

Genie was initially developed internally in Cisco, and is now available to the general public starting early 2018 through Cisco DevNet. Visit the Genie home page at
