Cucumber vs Robot Framework: What are the differences?

Developers describe Cucumber as "Simple, human collaboration". Cucumber is a tool that supports Behaviour-Driven Development (BDD) - a software development process that aims to enhance software quality and reduce maintenance costs. On the other hand, Robot Framework is detailed 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.

Cucumber and Robot Framework can be categorized as "Testing Frameworks" tools.

Cucumber is an open source tool with 2.54K GitHub stars and 501 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Cucumber's open source repository on GitHub.
