Appium is an open-source tool for automating native, mobile web, and hybrid applications on iOS and Android platforms. Native apps are those written using the iOS, Android, or Windows SDKs. Mobile web apps are web apps accessed using a mobile browser (Appium supports Safari on iOS and Chrome or the built-in ‘Browser’ app on Android). Hybrid apps have a wrapper around a “webview” – a native control that enables interaction with web content. Projects like Phonegap, make it easy to build apps using web technologies that are then bundled into a native wrapper, creating a hybrid app.
Importantly, Appium is “cross-platform”: it allows you to write tests against multiple platforms (iOS, Android, Windows), using the same API. This enables code reuse between iOS, Android, and Windows testsuites.
Appium vs Robotium,
Appium vs Selendroid,
Appium is free and open-source and easily downloaded from GitHub.
It is designed for mobile and only mobile – Selenium is not designed for mobile.
Appium likes automated testing, taking advantage of your developer skills.
This framework can automate native, web and hybrid mobile apps, and you can test on a real device, a simulator, or an emulator.
An HTTP server waiting for commands and using standardized JSON manages the WebDriver sessions, so no worries about language or platform restrictions.
Test scripts created from Appium libraries are LIVE – you can instigate them locally, on a session reserved by the Cloud (say, through TestObject), for any iOS or Android device, for any version.
Appium drives GUI-related widgets and controls, allowing the same scripts to run for different software versions of various apps.
Appium integrates with continuous integration servers to ensure better results.
Appium supports Safari on iOS and Chrome or the built-in ‘Browser’ app on Android.
Appium’s personality is guided by some philosophical tenets:
You shouldn’t have to recompile your app or modify it in any way in order to automate it.
You shouldn’t be locked into a specific language or framework to write and run your tests.
A mobile automation framework shouldn’t reinvent the wheel regarding automation APIs.
A mobile automation framework should be open source, in spirit, in practice, and in name!
