AnywhereLibrary is a cross platform (desktop browser, Android, iOS) testing library for Robot Framework that leverages the Selenium 2 (WebDriver) libraries internally to control a web browser and Appium as mobile test automation framework for use with native and hybrid apps.
This library is especially suitable for handling SPA (single-page apps) with responsive design patterns. With this you only need to generate a set of scripts to cover all platforms (desktop browser, Android, iOS).
On the other hand, no any UI test automation framework is made for your real business. If this library isn't be suitable for your business, it's highly recommed that you fork this repository as a prototype for UI test automation. Customize your own AnywhereLibrary in accordance to your actual business requirements.
The recommended installation method is using pip:
pip install robotframework-anywherelibrary
A sample test case which can run in desktop browser, sample Android and iOS webview apps with different platform parameter inputs.
Python source code.
Configuration file which stores all parameters for initializing the driver.
To write tests with Robot Framework and AnywhereLibrary, AnywhereLibrary must be imported into your RF test suite. See Robot Framework User Guide for more information.
As it uses Appium for its mobile solution, please make sure your Appium server is up and running. For how to use Appium, please refer to the Appium Documentation.
Before Running the Test Case
You must use the
Initial Driver keyword with platfrom value as the paramter input; after the test case you must use
Tear Down Driver keyword to tear down the related driver. Also you need do some modifications in
configuration.xml file in
All keywords in AnywhereLibrary that need to find an element on the page take an argument,

find by "class" (i.e., ui component type) find by "xpath" (i.e., an abstract representation of a path to an element, with certain constraints)
Supported strategies are:
