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).

pip install --upgrade robotframework-httplibrary

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)!

License

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.
