You got your Robot Framework in my Python
03-01, 17:00–17:30 (UTC), Gather Town

In the Robot Framework community we are so focused on adapting python packages that we can use Robot Framework libraries in standard Python scripts.

There has been plenty of work adapting key Python packages to Robot Framework: Requests, XML, JSON, Selenium, to name a few. The open source community has created and hammered out respectable abstractions and boiler plate code to get them to work reliably with Robot Framework.
Why not leverage these efforts in regular python code?
I will present details on how Python code can integrate Robot Framework. The inherent advantages of being able to write code using them. Also the benefits of being able to quickly adapt those scripts back to Robot Framework.
As with any use of wrapper type packages there caveats when using them, especially when it comes to managing dependencies.

Music Composer with a passion for technology (and a decent paycheck). I have been working for software development companies for 14 years. Automation has been my core focus for the last 8 years utilizing various scripting tools and languages for tests and other processes.

I am an avid sourdough break baker (even pre-pandemic), home brewer, and Raspberry Pi tinkerer. I am an active musician in my area playing Horn (French Horn) and British Tenor Horn. My happy place is writing and arranging music for the groups I play.

While not officially diagnosed, I am a gnome-a-holic and do not plan to go into any recovery program for the malady.
