good robots do what they're told

Tools for bad.robots

Just a quick post to introduce the robotooling project; a collection of useful Java tools available for download via the bad.robot.repo. Rather than re-implement the same utility code again and again, I’ve started to collect things under the bad.robot banner. So far, we have…

  • simple-http; a simple way to build a HTTP client and work with the HTTP verbs. No more lengthy configuration, it just works out of the box.
  • simple-excel; a simple DSL-wrapper over Apache POI to work with sheets
  • concordion-ant-task; build Concordion overview pages for your specifications
  • a collection of domain driven design classes so you can quickly incorporate value types and alike in your project.

Head over to or github to find out more.

Over to you...
