Appium Robots

Robots are an add-on for appium that will send all touch actions through a robot instead of to the automation framework.

1.) To launch a robot server choose a robot in the bots folder, for this example we will use Bitbeambot.

cd bots/bitbeambot

node server.js

2.) Calibrate the robot

appium --udid [udid here] --app --pre-launch

node calibrate.js -o /path/to/calibration.json

3.) Launch the Robot Server With Calibration

node server.js -c /path/to/calibration.json

4.) Launch Appium Server in Robot Mode

appium --udid [udid here] --robot-address --robot-port:4242
