Python Robot Framework Library for EOS devices

Project Description


The enclosed project aims to simplify testing when using Robot Framework by adding a number of EOS-centric keywords. The Library works by using the PyEAPI module to connect to and read information from EOS nodes.


  • Robot Framework <>
  • PyEAPI <>


See the AristaLibrary <> keyword documentation.

*** Test Cases ***
Ping Test
    [Documentation] Configure Et1 on both nodes and ping between them
    [tags]  Configure
    Configure IP Int    1   ethernet1
    Configure IP Int    2   ethernet1

    ${output}=  Enable  ping
    ${result}=  Get From Dictionary ${output[0]}    result
    Log ${result}
    ${match}    ${group1}=  Should Match Regexp ${result['messages'][0]}    (\\d+)% packet loss
    Should Be Equal As Integers ${group1}   0   msg="Packets lost percent not zero!!!"

*** Keywords ***
