AndroidViewClient was originally conceived as an extension to monkeyrunner but lately evolved as a pure python tool that automates or simplifies test script creation. It is a test framework for Android applications that:

    • Automates driving Android applications
    • Generates re-usable scripts
    • Provides view-based device independent UI interaction
    • Uses 'logical' screen comparison (UI Automator Hierarchy based) over image comparison (Avoiding extraneous detail issues, such as time or data changes)
    • Supports running on multiple devices
    • Provides simple control for high level operations like language change and activity start
    • Supports all Android APIs
    • Is written in python (python 2.7 and python 3.6+ support in 20.x.y)
🛎 A new Kotlin backend is under development to provide more functionality and improve performance.
Take a look at CulebraTester2 and 20.x.y-series prerelease.
