Robot Framework is a generic open-source, Python-based, widely used automation framework. It is an extensible keyword-driven automation framework, useful for acceptance testing, acceptance test-driven development (ATDD), behavior-driven development (BDD), and robotic process automation (RPA). It can be used in distributed, heterogeneous environments, where automation requires using different technologies and interfaces. In the Robot Framework and all of its libraries, they really do a lot to meet the versatile product requirements.

In case to meet specific functionality that does not handle in the existing libraries of robot framework, customizing robot framework is the best solution. This proposal will brighten the idea of how to use the Robot framework to make automation possible for any product. It will cover the generic design to extend the Robot framework which will be applicable for any custom product. The concept of extending the existing framework will support non-existing functionality from a wide range of products and provides the feasibility of test automation in any project. The demo example will add a practical implementation of the presented design. Also, this demo will cover how to create a project-specific framework using the Robot framework.

The talk will initially cover the revisionary introduction of the robot framework however detailed basics of the Robot framework will be out of scope. The major focus will be on the understanding of how to design and implement robot framework customization, to make the test automation feasible for any custom product.
