HILSTER Testing Framework¶
Welcome to the HILSTER Testing Framework documentation.
HILSTER Testing Framework is a professional Python Testing Framework with a strong focus on reporting, industrial applications and functional safety.
It allows you to build HWIL-teststands (Hardware in the Loop teststands) with Python-based tests.
If you’d like to see videos look at the demo.
HILSTER Testing Framework seamlessly works with the Dashboard.
You might be interested in the community add-ons, too.
htf is installed via pip:
pip install -i https://pypi.hilster.io htf-community
You might also be interested in the community license.
If you prefer a more guided introduction take a look at the HILSTER Testing Framework Demonstrator.
import htf def test_example(step, assertions, attachments, threads): with step("Tests can be structured with steps"): assertions.assert_true(True, "This step succeeds") with step("Attach a file if the outer step succeeds"): attachments.attach_file("graph.png", "Important graph") with step("Run something in the background"): def tick(): while True: print('tick') threads.run_background(tick) if __name__ == "__main__": htf.main()
