Avocado is a set of tools and libraries to help with automated testing.

One can call it a test framework with benefits. Native tests are written in Python and they follow the unittest (https://docs.python.org/3.6/library/unittest.html) pattern, but any executable can serve as a test.

Avocado is composed of:

  • A test runner that lets you execute tests. Those tests can be either written in your language of choice, or be written in Python and use the available libraries. In both cases, you get facilities such as automated log and system information collection.

  • Libraries that help you write tests in a concise, yet expressive and powerful way. You can find more information about what libraries are intended for test writers at: http://avocado-framework.readthedocs.io/en/latest/api/utils/avocado.utils.html

  • Plugins that can extend and add new functionality to the Avocado Framework. More info at: http://avocado-framework.readthedocs.io/en/latest/Plugins.html

Avocado is built on the experience accumulated with Autotest (http://autotest.github.io), while improving on its weaknesses and shortcomings.
