Controlling apples with snakes: Automating mobile apps with Appium
Testing mobile applications is hard. Testing manually is nearly impossible. That’s where automated testing shines. Just sit back and watch the machine go! Python is a very powerful language for writing automated tests, but since Python is not installed on mobile platforms, we need to find a way to remotely control and monitor the device. But how do we automate a device remotely? The answer is Appium. In this talk I will go over the process of deploying and testing iOS (or Android) applications, and how to work with Appium to easily generate Python 3 code for testing your application.
