With Robot Framework on IronPython (Install Robot Framework with IronPython on Windows) you still implement the keywords in Python, but you can seamlessly access the wealth of .NET-libraries.
An example is worth a thousand words; so find an example how to use System.IO.File from .NET to create a file:
1.) IronPython (Python on .NET) file:
import System class FileManager: def create_file(self, fileName): System.IO.File.Create(fileName)
… save as C:\Program Files (x86)\robotframework-2.9\src\bin\FileManager.py
2.) Robot Framework file:
*** Settings *** Library FileManager *** Test Cases *** My Test Create File fantastic.txt
… save as C:\Program Files (x86)\robotframework-2.9\src\bin\ExampleTestCase.txt
The Keyword “Create File” in this .txt is automaically matched to the create_file method from the Python file. The underscore is automatically “translated” to a space.
3.) Execute in cmd:
cd C:\Program Files (x86)\robotframework-2.9\src\bin ipybot ExampleTestCase.txt
Finished! Find fantactic.txt in C:\Program Files (x86)\robotframework-2.9\src\bin.
