Helper methods for writing cross platform (iOS, Android) tests in Ruby using Appium. Note that user waits should not exceed 120 seconds if they're going to run on Sauce Labs.

Ruby_lib_core is also available as a Ruby client for Appium. ruby_lib wraps the core library with some additional helpful methods. Ordinary, ruby_lib worked with class driver, $driver, mainly. We can avoid the class driver with current ruby_lib, but if you'd like to implement your test cases based on instance driver, @driver, you can consider using ruby_lib_core first.

Setup

Requirement

Ruby Lib and Appium

  • Ruby library version over 9.8.0 requires Appium over 1.8
  • Ruby library version under 9.7.5 can work with Appium under 1.7

Start appium server

$ npm install -g appium
$ appium

Install / Upgrade

  • Update rubygems and bundler
$ gem update --system
$ gem update bundler
  • Install the latest gem release
gem uninstall -aIx appium_lib
gem install --no-rdoc --no-ri appium_lib

Sauce Labs env vars

  • SAUCE_USERNAME Sauce username
  • SAUCE_ACCESS_KEY Sauce API key
  • SAUCE_ENDPOINT Alternative Sauce Appium Server endpoint (only use if directed)

(Note: If these variables are set, all tests will use Sauce Labs unless over-ridden in configuration.)
