Robot Framework vs Selenium: What are the differences?
Developers describe Robot Framework as "A test automation framework for acceptance testing and ATDD". It is a generic test automation framework for acceptance testing and acceptance test-driven development. It has easy-to-use tabular test data syntax and it utilizes the keyword-driven testing approach. Its testing capabilities can be extended by test libraries implemented either with Python or Java, and users can create new higher-level keywords from existing ones using the same syntax that is used for creating test cases. On the other hand, Selenium is detailed as "Web Browser Automation". Selenium automates browsers. That's it! What you do with that power is entirely up to you. Primarily, it is for automating web applications for testing purposes, but is certainly not limited to just that. Boring web-based administration tasks can (and should!) also be automated as well.
Robot Framework and Selenium are primarily classified as "Testing Frameworks" and "Browser Testing" tools respectively.
Selenium is an open source tool with 14.9K GitHub stars and 4.97K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Selenium's open source repository on GitHub.
