Source: How to perform automation testing with Gauge Framework

Gauge is a test automation solution that’s being built by ThoughtWorks; it’s cross-platform and open-source. It supports multiple languages including Ruby, Java, C#, Python and Javascript, and it has upcoming support for other languages — like Golang — as well.

Many folks, from both the gauge community and the core team at Thoughtworks contribute to Gauge. This can be seen by the number of plugins that come along with Gauge — like things for helping with report generations and dependency managements.
