Simulation and Testing

An important (but often neglected) part of developing your robot code is to test it! Because we feel strongly about testing and simulation, the RobotPy project provides tools to make those types of things easier through the pyfrc project.

Adding tests to your robot

pyfrc comes with builtin tests that you can add to your robot code that will test basic functionality of most robots. As of pyfrc 2016.1.1, you can add these tests to your robot by executing this:

Windows:   py add-tests

Linux/OSX: python3 add-tests

Customized tests

For more detailed information, check out the pyfrc documentation.
