Robot Framework Remote Runner
This library provides a robotframework slave, and accompanying robot executor script that allows you to run Robot Framework Test Suites remotely. It's designed to be a lightweight agent and can be used as an alternative, or with a CI Agent (e.g. Jenkins Slave). The executor script parses Test Suites and packages them up before making an RPC call to the slave. The slave then writes all Test Suites and resources to a temporary directory and then executes a robot run, returning the test result artifacts back to the invoking host.
To install the package run:
pip install -r requirements.txt
This package will need to be installed on the slave host, and the host you wish to execute the remote run from.
This library contains two scripts:
- runslave - The agent that executes the robot run.
- executerun - The script that invokes the slave to execute the robot run.
Once installed the slave can be launched by executing the
C:\python -m rfremoterunner.runslave -h usage: __main__.py [-h] [-a ADDRESS] [-p PORT] [-d] Script to launch the robotframework slave. optional arguments: -h, --help show this help message and exit -a ADDRESS, --address ADDRESS Address to bind to. Default is localhost -p PORT, --port PORT Port to listen on. Default is 1471 -d, --debug If set the temporary directory will not be deleted after a robot run
C:\python -m rfremoterunner.runslave -a 127.0.0.1 -p 1471 Listening on 127.0.0.1:1471
Once installed a remote robot run can be executed by running the
C:\python -m rfremoterunner.executerun -h usage: __main__.py [-h] [-d OUTPUTDIR] [-o OUTPUT] [-l LOG] [-r REPORT] [-i INCLUDE] [-e EXCLUDE] [-t TEST] [-s SUITE] [-L LOGLEVEL] host suites [suites ...] Script to execute a remote robot run positional arguments: host IP or Hostname of the server to execute the robot run on. You can optionally specify the port the server is listening on by adding ":<port>". If not specified the port will be defaulted to 1471 suites One or more paths to test suites or directories containing test suites optional arguments: -h, --help show this help message and exit -d OUTPUTDIR, --outputdir OUTPUTDIR Where to create the output files on this machine once they've been retrieved. The default is the directory that this script is run from -o OUTPUT, --output OUTPUT Where to save the XML output file on this machine once its been retrieved. Given path, similarly as paths given to --log and --report is path. Other output files are created based on XML output files after the test execution and XML outputs can also be further processed with Rebot tool. Default: output.xml -l LOG, --log LOG Where to save the HTML Log file on this machine once its been retrieved. Default: log.html -r REPORT, --report REPORT Where to save the HTML Report file on this machine once its been retrieved. Default: report.html -i INCLUDE, --include INCLUDE Select test cases to run by tag. Similarly as name with --test, tag is case and space insensitive and it is possible to use patterns with `*` and `?` as wildcards. Tags and patterns can also be combined together with `AND`, `OR`, and `NOT` operators. Examples: --include foo --include bar* --include fooANDbar* -e EXCLUDE, --exclude EXCLUDE Select test cases not to run by tag. These tests are not run even if included with --include. Tags are matched using the rules explained with --include. -t TEST, --test TEST Select test cases to run by name or long name. Name is case and space insensitive and it can also be a simple pattern where `*` matches anything and `?` matches any char. -s SUITE, --suite SUITE Select test suites to run by name. When this option is used with --test, --include or --exclude, only test cases in matching suites and also matching other filtering criteria are selected. Name can be a simple pattern similarly as with --test and it can contain parent name separated with a dot. For example `-s X.Y` selects suite `Y` only if its parent is `X`. -L LOGLEVEL, --loglevel LOGLEVEL Threshold level for logging. Available levels: TRACE, DEBUG, INFO (default), WARN, NONE (no logging). Use syntax `LOGLEVEL:DEFAULT` to define the default visible log level in log files. Examples: --loglevel DEBUG --loglevel DEBUG:INFO
The executor script currently supports a subset of the arguments that

- Test Suites' Resource & Library files are not currently shipped down to the Robot Slave.
- Because of limitations with
argparseyou are not able to specify some robot arguments multiple times like you can with
--include Tag1 --include Tag2)
- Ship over a Test Suite's Resource & Library dependencies. (Coming very soon!)
- Implement a
--debugflag that will output verbose logs and will not delete the temporary directory on the slave machine after execution.
- Verify Test Suites are valid before invoking the slave runner.
- Extend Executor script to support all
- Add support for Robot Variable files.
- Implement custom argument parsing in the executor to allow for multiple arguments of the same name.
- Implement an asynchronous mode with the ability to poll the slave for a status on a particular robot execution.
- Add support to run on multiple hosts (concurrently).
