This project is a fastlane plugin. To get started with
fastlane-plugin-browserstack, add it to your project by running:
fastlane add_plugin browserstack
Uploads IPA and APK files to BrowserStack for automation and manual testing.
Please refer this sample android project, which demonstrates the use of this plugin. You can easily upload your app using BrowserStack fastlane Plugin and execute your test on BrowserStack cloud. In order to configure the plugin add below action in your Fastfile. You can also check our repository.
upload_to_browserstack_app_automate( browserstack_username: ENV["BROWSERSTACK_USERNAME"], browserstack_access_key: ENV["BROWSERSTACK_ACCESS_KEY"], file_path: "<path_to_your_apk_or_ipa_file>", custom_id: "<custom_id_name>" )
Note: custom_id is optional. You can upload multiple builds under the same custom_id. Use custom_id in 'app' capability for Appium to always pick the last uploaded build. The file_path parameter is not required if the app was built in the same lane with the help of Gradle or Gym plugin.
For uploading your app to AppLive use the following action in the fastfile
upload_to_browserstack_app_live( browserstack_username: ENV["BROWSERSTACK_USERNAME"], browserstack_access_key: ENV["BROWSERSTACK_ACCESS_KEY"], file_path: "<path_to_apk_or_ipa_file>" )
Check out the example Fastfile to see how to use this plugin. Try it by including that in your project's Fastfile, running
fastlane install_plugins and
bundle exec fastlane test. Please refer to this sample android project, which demonstrates the use of this plugin.
Once the app upload is successful, the app id of the app will be stored in an environment variable, "BROWSERSTACK_APP_ID" and it can be accessed in your tests in the following way :
String app = System.getenv("BROWSERSTACK_APP_ID"); // Get app id from environment variable. capabilities.setCapability("app", app); // Add app id to driver capability.
