Welcome to the TestModeller.io Robot Framework tutorial !
In this tutorial we'll be covering how to get started with TestModeller.io for Robot Framework.
This is aimed for first-time users along with users who have an existing Robot automation framework.
A demonstration of Test Modeller for Robot Framework covered in this tutorial.
TestModeller.io is a browser-based solution that enables users to:
This quick start guide provides an overview for new users to get started with creating automation for a Robot Framework based automation framework to quickly start creating models and associated automation.
For Robot Framework this means creating models which automatically generate Robot script which can be directly plugged into your Robot automation framework.
This section is by no means comprehensive and intended as a quick start guide. If you wish to learn more about modelling we recommend you review our knowledge base along with our video tutorials for a comprehensive guide to creating models and test automation.
The goal is to equip the reader with the working knowledge needed to get started with creating test automation to test their own systems and integrate into their own automation frameworks. With TestModeller.io, this means automatically generating complete automated test suites from models that are quick to build and easy to maintain.
Here we'll be installing all the prerequisites you need to get started with test automation in Robot Framework through TestModeller.io.
All code created using TestModeller.io uses code templates which define the structure and type of code to be created. Test Modeller provides support for numerous open source frameworks out-the-box made available on the Curiosity Software GitHub page.
The sample framework provides pre-configured code templates within the ‘Code Template’ directory. To import these into Test Modeller follow these steps or watch the video below.
Create a new project within Test Modeller which will be used as a workspace for our page objects and models created for consumption by the automation framework.
Note: This is using the sample framework and configuration provided by Test Modeller. You may have your own automation framework which you wish to utilise. This can be integrated into Test Modeller by configuring your own code templates. A video tutorial is available here.
