Gauge is an end-to-end test automation framework built by ThoughtWorks; it’s cross-platform and open-source. It supports multiple languages including Ruby, Java, C#, Python, and JavaScript.

Gauge gives you a business layer on top of your test “specifications” to make them more readable and more understandable. Gauge tests are in Markdown which makes writing and maintaining tests easier.

The Gauge framework offers several benefits in addition to its English language syntax. The built-in parallel execution feature helps easily manage executing large test suites fast. The community has also created a broad set of plugins to extend Gauge’s modular architecture.
