Installing RIDE (Robot Framework IDE)

[ride]-extras will create a script to start RIDE, the IDE for Robot Framework, but it can be launched only explicitly with a compatible system python with wxPython 2.8.x installed.

Update buildout.cfg:

parts =

recipe = zc.recipe.egg
eggs =

If you can get RIDE running, you should select its Run-tab, change the value of Execution Profile to custom script, and click Browser*-button to select bin/robot from the buildout directory. Running RIDE using bin/robot* will enable test isolation to work when running tests from RIDE.

If you want to place a breakpoint you can use the Comment keyword with argument PAUSE. RIDE will stop and let you step through your test.
