RobotFramework debug library and an interactive shell

Project Description


Robotframework-DebugLibrary is A debug library for RobotFramework, which can be used as an interactive shell(REPL) also.


Installation is done just as for any other Python library. Using the pip or easy_install command from setuptools is the easiest.

To install using pip:

pip install robotframework-debuglibrary

To install using easy_install:

easy_install robotframework-debuglibrary


You can use this as a library, import DebugLibrary and call Debug keyword in your test files like this:

    # some keywords...

Or you can run it standalone as a RobotFramework shell:

$ rfshell
>>>>> Enter interactive shell, only accepted plain text format keyword.
> log  hello
> get time
<  '2011-10-13 18:50:31'
> import library  String
> get substring  helloworld  5  8
< 'wor'
> ${secs} =  Get Time  epoch
<  ${secs} = 1474814470
> Log to console  ${secs}
> @{list} =  Create List    hello    world
<  @{list} = [u'hello', u'world']
> Log to console  ${list}
[u'hello', u'world']
> &{dict} =  Create Dictionary    name=admin    email=admin@test.local
