As part of the efforts to improve the test infrastructure of ROS I implemented a Python package [hypothesis-ros](https://github.com/ros-testing/hypothesis-ros). It provides "strategies" (data generators) for ROS messages/parameters and allows to implement strategies for custom messages. These "strategies" can be used to apply property based testing on the ROS node/nodelet level. The package has Python dependencies only and is deployed on [pypi (hypothesis-ros)](https://pypi.org/project/hypothesis-ros/). A ROS release is on the TODO list. Documentation: The best documentation are tests :wink: 

Happy ROS node/nodelet fuzzy testing :star_struck: (Good luck! You'll need it... probably.)

*Side note:* I will only add strategies which I need for work. However PRs to get other strategies added are welcome.
