uiautomator2 是一个Android UI自动化框架,支持Python编写测试脚本对设备进行自动化。底层基于Google uiautomator,Google提供的uiautomator库可以获取屏幕上任意一个APP的任意一个控件属性,并对其进行任意操作,但有两个缺点:1. 测试脚本只能使用Java语言 2. 测试脚本必须每次被上传到设备上运行。 我们希望测试能够用一个更脚本化的语言,例如Python编写,同时可以每次所见即所得地修改测试、运行测试。这里要非常感谢 Xiaocong He (@xiaocong),他将这个想法实现了出来(见xiaocong/uiautomator),原理是在手机上运行了一个http服务器,将uiautomator中的功能开放出来,然后再将这些http接口,封装成Python库。 我们的uiautomator2项目是对xiaocong/uiautomator的增强,主要有以下部分:

  • 设备和开发机可以脱离数据线,通过WiFi互联(基于atx-agent
  • 集成了openstf/minicap达到实时屏幕投频,以及实时截图
  • 集成了openstf/minitouch达到精确实时控制设备
  • 修复了xiaocong/uiautomator经常性退出的问题
  • 代码进行了重构和精简,方便维护
  • Requirements: Android >= 4.4 Python >=2.7 || <= 3.7



Connect to a device

App management

UI automation







  1. Install uiautomator2

    # Since uiautomator2 is still under development, you have to add --pre to install the development version
    pip install --upgrade --pre uiautomator2
    # Or you can install directly from github source
    git clone
    pip install -e uiautomator2

    Optionally, pillow is needed to process screenshot data.

    pip install pillow
  2. Install daemons to a device    电脑连接上一个手机或多个手机, 确保adb已经添加到环境变量中,执行下面的命令会自动安装本库所需要的设备端程序:uiautomator-serveratx-agentopenstf/minicapopenstf/minitouch

    # init 所有的已经连接到电脑的设备
    python -m uiautomator2 init



  3. Install weditor (UI Inspector)

    因为uiautomator是独占资源,所以当atx运行的时候uiautomatorviewer是不能用的,为了减少atx频繁的启停,我们开发了基于浏览器技术的weditor UI查看器。

    安装方法(备注: 目前最新的稳定版为 0.1.0)

    pip install -U weditor

    Windows系统可以使用命令在桌面创建一个快捷方式 python -m weditor --shortcut

    命令行启动 python -m weditor 会自动打开浏览器,输入设备的ip或者序列号,点击Connect即可。


  4. 【推荐】AppetizerIO 所见即所得脚本编辑器

    AppetizerIO 提供了对uiautomator2的深度集成,可以图形化管理ATX设备,还有所见即所得脚本编辑器

    • 到网站下载直接打开,首次使用需要注册账号
    • 设备管理 界面里可以检查设备是否正常init,起停atx-agent,抓取atx-agent.log文件

Connect to a device

There are two ways to connect to the device.

  1. Through WiFi

Suppose device IP is and your PC is in the same network.

import uiautomator2 as u2

d = u2.connect('') # alias for u2.connect_wifi('')
  1. Through USB

Suppose the device serial is 123456f (seen from adb devices)

import uiautomator2 as u2

d = u2.connect('123456f') # alias for u2.connect_usb('123456f')
  1. Through ADB WiFi
import uiautomator2 as u2

d = u2.connect_adb_wifi("")

# Equals to 
# + Shell: adb connect
# + Python: u2.connect_usb("")

Calling u2.connect() with no argument, uiautomator2 will obtain device IP from the environment variable ANDROID_DEVICE_IP. If this environment variable is empty, uiautomator will fall back to connect_usb and you need to make sure that there is only one device connected to the computer.

Command line


  • init: 为设备安装所需要的程序

  • install: 安装apk,apk通过URL给出

API Documents

Global settings

This part contains some global settings

Debug HTTP requests

Trace HTTP requests and response to find out how it works.

>>> d.debug = True
12:32:47.182 $ curl -X POST -d '{"jsonrpc": "2.0", "id": "b80d3a488580be1f3e9cb3e926175310", "method": "deviceInfo", "params": {}}' ''
12:32:47.225 Response >>>
<<< END

Implicit wait

Set default element wait time, unit seconds

d(text="Settings").click() # if Settings button not show in 10s, UiObjectNotFoundError will raised

print("wait timeout", d.implicitly_wait()) # get default implicit wait

This function will have influence on click, long_click, drag_to, get_text, set_text, clear_text, etc.

App management

This part showcases how to perform app management

Install an app

We only support installing an APK from a URL


Launch an app

d.app_start("com.example.hello_world") # start with package name

Stop an app

# equivalent to `am force-stop`, thus you could lose data
# equivalent to `pm clear`

Stop all running apps

# stop all
# stop all app except for com.examples.demo

Get app info

# expect output
#    "mainActivity": "com.github.uiautomator.MainActivity",
#    "label": "ATX",
#    "versionName": "1.1.7",
#    "versionCode": 1001007,
#    "size":1760809

# save app icon
img = d.app_icon("com.examples.demo")"icon.png")

Push and pull files

  • push a file to the device

    # push to a folder
    d.push("foo.txt", "/sdcard/")
    # push and rename
    d.push("foo.txt", "/sdcard/bar.txt")
    # push fileobj
    with open("foo.txt", 'rb') as f:
        d.push(f, "/sdcard/")
    # push and change file access mode
    d.push("", "/data/local/tmp/", mode=0o755)
  • pull a file from the device

    d.pull("/sdcard/tmp.txt", "tmp.txt")
    # FileNotFoundError will raise if the file is not found on the device
    d.pull("/sdcard/some-file-not-exists.txt", "tmp.txt")



Auto click permission dialogs

注意注意 disable_popups函数,检测发现很不稳定,暂时不要使用,等候通知。

Import in version 0.1.1

d.disable_popups() # automatic skip popups
d.disable_popups(False) # disable automatic skip popups


If this method is not working on your device, You can make a pull request or create an issue to enhance this function. I'll show you how to do it.

  1. Open uiautomatorviewer.bat
  2. Get popup hierarchy


Now you know the button text and current package name. Make a pull request by update function disable_popups or create an issue if you are not familar with git and python.

Basic API Usages

This part showcases how to perform common device operations:

Shell commands

  • Run a short-lived shell command with a timeout protection. (Default timeout 60s)

    Note: timeout support require atx-agent >=0.3.3

    adb_shell function is deprecated. Use shell instead.

    Simple usage

    output, exit_code ="pwd", timeout=60) # timeout 60s (Default)
    # output: "/\n", exit_code: 0
    # Similar to command: adb shell pwd
    # Since `shell` function return type is `namedtuple("ShellResponse", ("output", "exit_code"))`
    # so we can do some tricks
    output ="pwd").output
    exit_code ="pwd").exit_code

    The first argument can be list. for example

    output, exit_code =["ls", "-l"])
    # output: "/....", exit_code: 0

    This returns a string for stdout merged with stderr. If the command is a blocking command, shell will also block until the command is completed or the timeout kicks in. No partial output will be received during the execution of the command. This API is not suitable for long-running commands. The shell command given runs in a similar environment of adb shell, which has a Linux permission level of adb or shell (higher than an app permission).

  • Run a long-running shell command

    add stream=True will return requests.models.Response object. More info see requests stream

    r ="logcat", stream=True)
    # r: requests.models.Response
    deadline = time.time() + 10 # run maxium 10s
        for line in r.iter_lines(): # r.iter_lines(chunk_size=512, decode_unicode=None, delimiter=None)
            if time.time() > deadline:
            print("Read:", line.decode('utf-8'))
        r.close() # this method must be called

    Command will be terminated when r.close() called.


Session represent an app lifecycle. Can be used to start app, detect app crash.

  • Launch and close app

    sess = d.session("com.netease.cloudmusic") # start 网易云音乐
    sess.close() # 停止网易云音乐
  • Use python with to launch and close app

    with d.session("com.netease.cloudmusic") as sess:
  • Attach to the running app

    sess = d.session("com.netease.cloudmusic", attach=True)
  • Detect app crash

    # When app is still running
    sess(text="Music").click() # operation goes normal
    # If app crash or quit
    sess(text="Music").click() # raise SessionBrokenError
    # other function calls under session will raise SessionBrokenError too
    # check if session is ok.
    # Warning: function name may change in the future
    sess.running() # True or False

  • Retrieve/Set device orientation

    The possible orientations:

    • natural or n
    • left or l
    • right or r
    • upsidedown or u (can not be set)
    # retrieve orientation. the output could be "natural" or "left" or "right" or "upsidedown"
    orientation = d.orientation
    # WARNING: not pass testing in my TT-M1
    # set orientation and freeze rotation.
    # notes: setting "upsidedown" requires Android>=4.3.
    d.set_orientation('l') # or "left"
    d.set_orientation("l") # or "left"
    d.set_orientation("r") # or "right"
    d.set_orientation("n") # or "natural"
  • Freeze/Un-freeze rotation

    # freeze rotation
    # un-freeze rotation
  • Take screenshot

    # take screenshot and save to a file on the computer, require Android>=4.2.
    # get PIL.Image formatted images. Naturally, you need pillow installed first
    image = d.screenshot() # default format="pillow""home.jpg") # or home.png. Currently, only png and jpg are supported
    # get opencv formatted images. Naturally, you need numpy and cv2 installed first
    import cv2
    image = d.screenshot(format='opencv')
    cv2.imwrite('home.jpg', image)
    # get raw jpeg data
    imagebin = d.screenshot(format='raw')
    open("some.jpg", "wb").write(imagebin)
  • Dump UI hierarchy

    # get the UI hierarchy dump content (unicoded).
    xml = d.dump_hierarchy()
  • Open notification or quick settings



Selector is a handy mechanism to identify a specific UI object in the current window.

# Select the object with text 'Clock' and its className is 'android.widget.TextView'
d(text='Clock', className='android.widget.TextView')

Selector supports below parameters. Refer to UiSelector Java doc for detailed information.

  • text, textContains, textMatches, textStartsWith
  • className, classNameMatches
  • description, descriptionContains, descriptionMatches, descriptionStartsWith
  • checkable, checked, clickable, longClickable
  • scrollable, enabled,focusable, focused, selected
  • packageName, packageNameMatches
  • resourceId, resourceIdMatches
  • index, instance

Children and siblings

  • children

    # get the children or grandchildren
  • siblings

    # get siblings
  • children by text or description or instance

    # get the child matching the condition className="android.widget.LinearLayout"
    # and also its children or grandchildren with text "Bluetooth"
    d(className="android.widget.ListView", resourceId="android:id/list") \
     .child_by_text("Bluetooth", className="android.widget.LinearLayout")
    # get children by allowing scroll search
    d(className="android.widget.ListView", resourceId="android:id/list") \
    • child_by_description is to find children whose grandchildren have the specified description, other parameters being similar to child_by_text.

    • child_by_instance is to find children with has a child UI element anywhere within its sub hierarchy that is at the instance specified. It is performed on visible views without scrolling.

    See below links for detailed information:

    • UiScrollable, getChildByDescription, getChildByText, getChildByInstance
    • UiCollection, getChildByDescription, getChildByText, getChildByInstance

    Above methods support chained invoking, e.g. for below hierarchy

    <node index="0" text="" resource-id="android:id/list" class="android.widget.ListView" ...>
      <node index="0" text="WIRELESS & NETWORKS" resource-id="" class="android.widget.TextView" .../>
      <node index="1" text="" resource-id="" class="android.widget.LinearLayout" ...>
        <node index="1" text="" resource-id="" class="android.widget.RelativeLayout" ...>
          <node index="0" text="Wi‑Fi" resource-id="android:id/title" class="android.widget.TextView" .../>
        <node index="2" text="ON" resource-id="" class="android.widget.Switch" .../>


    To click the switch widget right to the TextView 'Wi‑Fi', we need to select the switch widgets first. However, according to the UI hierarchy, more than one switch widgets exist and have almost the same properties. Selecting by className will not work. Alternatively, the below selecting strategy would help:

    d(className="android.widget.ListView", resourceId="android:id/list") \
      .child_by_text("Wi‑Fi", className="android.widget.LinearLayout") \
      .child(className="android.widget.Switch") \
  • relative positioning

    Also we can use the relative positioning methods to get the view: left, right, top, bottom.

    • d(A).left(B), selects B on the left side of A.
    • d(A).right(B), selects B on the right side of A.
    • d(A).up(B), selects B above A.
    • d(A).down(B), selects B under A.

    So for above cases, we can alternatively select it with:

    ## select "switch" on the right side of "Wi‑Fi"
  • Multiple instances

    Sometimes the screen may contain multiple views with the same properties, e.g. text, then you will have to use the "instance" property in the selector to pick one of qualifying instances, like below:

    d(text="Add new", instance=0)  # which means the first instance with text "Add new"

    In addition, uiautomator2 provides a list-like API (similar to jQuery):

    # get the count of views with text "Add new" on current screen
    d(text="Add new").count
    # same as count property
    len(d(text="Add new"))
    # get the instance via index
    d(text="Add new")[0]
    d(text="Add new")[1]
    # iterator
    for view in d(text="Add new"):  # ...

    Notes: when using selectors in a code block that walk through the result list, you must ensure that the UI elements on the screen keep unchanged. Otherwise, when Element-Not-Found error could occur when iterating through the list.

Get the selected ui object status and its information

  • Check if the specific UI object exists

    d(text="Settings").exists # True if exists, else False
    d.exists(text="Settings") # alias of above property.
    # advanced usage
    d(text="Settings").exists(timeout=3) # wait Settings appear in 3s, same as .wait(3)
  • Retrieve the info of the specific UI object


    Below is a possible output:

    { u'contentDescription': u'',
    u'checked': False,
    u'scrollable': False,
    u'text': u'Settings',
    u'packageName': u'',
    u'selected': False,
    u'enabled': True,

                        u'left': 200},
    u'checkable': False
  • Get/Set/Clear text of an editable field (e.g., EditText widgets)

    d(text="Settings").get_text()  # get widget text
    d(text="Settings").set_text("My text...")  # set the text
    d(text="Settings").clear_text()  # clear the text
  • Get Widget center point

    x, y = d(text="Settings").center()
    # x, y = d(text="Settings").center(offset=(0, 0)) # left-top x, y

Perform the click action on the selected UI object

  • Perform click on the specific object

    # click on the center of the specific ui object
    # wait element to appear for at most 10 seconds and then click
    # click with offset(x_offset, y_offset)
    # click_x = x_offset * width + x_left_top
    # click_y = y_offset * height + y_left_top
    d(text="Settings").click(offset=(0.5, 0.5)) # Default center
    d(text="Settings").click(offset=(0, 0)) # click left-top
    d(text="Settings").click(offset=(1, 1)) # click right-bottom
    # click when exists in 10s, default timeout 0s
    clicked = d(text='Skip').click_exists(timeout=10.0)
    # click until element gone, return bool
    is_gone = d(text="Skip").click_gone(maxretry=10, interval=1.0) # maxretry default 10, interval default 1.0
  • Perform long click on the specific UI object

    # long click on the center of the specific UI object

Gesture actions for the specific UI object

  • Drag the UI object towards another point or another UI object

    # notes : drag can not be used for Android<4.3.
    # drag the UI object to a screen point (x, y), in 0.5 second
    d(text="Settings").drag_to(x, y, duration=0.5)
    # drag the UI object to (the center position of) another UI object, in 0.25 second
    d(text="Settings").drag_to(text="Clock", duration=0.25)
  • Swipe from the center of the UI object to its edge

    Swipe supports 4 directions:

    • left
    • right
    • top
    • bottom
    d(text="Settings").swipe("left", steps=10)
    d(text="Settings").swipe("up", steps=20) # 1 steps is about 5ms, so 20 steps is about 0.1s
    d(text="Settings").swipe("down", steps=20)
  • Two-point gesture from one point to another

    d(text="Settings").gesture((sx1, sy1), (sx2, sy2), (ex1, ey1), (ex2, ey2))
  • Two-point gesture on the specific UI object

    Supports two gestures:

    • In, from edge to center
    • Out, from center to edge
    # notes : pinch can not be set until Android 4.3.
    # from edge to center. here is "In" not "in"
    d(text="Settings").pinch_in(percent=100, steps=10)
    # from center to edge
  • Wait until the specific UI appears or disappears

    # wait until the ui object appears
    d(text="Settings").wait(timeout=3.0) # return bool
    # wait until the ui object gone

    The default timeout is 20s. see global settings for more details

  • Perform fling on the specific ui object(scrollable)

    Possible properties:

    • horiz or vert
    • forward or backward or toBeginning or toEnd
    # fling forward(default) vertically(default)

You can register watchers to perform some actions when a selector does not find a match.

  • Register Watcher

    When a selector can not find a match, uiautomator2 will run all registered watchers.

    • Click target when conditions match
    d.watcher("AUTO_FC_WHEN_ANR").when(text="ANR").when(text="Wait") \
                                 .click(text="Force Close")
    # d.watcher(name) ## creates a new named watcher.
    #  .when(condition)  ## the UiSelector condition of the watcher.
    #  .click(target)  ## perform click action on the target UiSelector.

    There is also a trick about click. You can use click without arguments.

    # Same as
    • Press key when a condition becomes true
    d.watcher("AUTO_FC_WHEN_ANR").when(text="ANR").when(text="Wait") \
                                 .press("back", "home")
    # d.watcher(name) ## creates a new named watcher.
    #  .when(condition)  ## the UiSelector condition of the watcher.
    #  .press(<keyname>, ..., <keyname>.()  ## press keys one by one in sequence.
  • Check if the named watcher triggered

    A watcher is triggered, which means the watcher was run and all its conditions matched.

    # true in case of the specified watcher triggered, else false
  • Remove a named watcher

    # remove the watcher
  • List all watchers

    # a list of all registered watchers
  • Check for any triggered watcher

    #  true in case of any watcher triggered
  • Reset all triggered watchers

    # reset all triggered watchers, after that, d.watchers.triggered will be false.
  • Remove watchers

    # remove all registered watchers
    # remove the named watcher, same as d.watcher("watcher_name").remove()
  • Force to run all watchers

    # force to run all registered watchers
  • Run all watchers when page update.


    # enable auto trigger watchers
    d.watchers.watched = True
    # disable auto trigger watchers
    d.watchers.watched = False
    # get current trigger watchers status
    assert d.watchers.watched == False


Global settings

# set delay 1.5s after each UI click and click
d.click_post_delay = 1.5 # default no delay

# set default element wait timeout (seconds)
d.wait_timeout = 30.0 # default 20.0

Input method


d.set_fastinput_ime(True) # 切换成FastInputIME输入法
d.send_keys("你好123abcEFG") # adb广播输入
d.clear_text() # 清除输入框所有内容(Require android-uiautomator.apk version >= 1.0.7)
d.set_fastinput_ime(False) # 切换成正常的输入法
d.send_action("search") # 模拟输入法的搜索

send_action 说明

该函数可以使用的参数有 go search send next done previous


有些时候在EditText中输入完内容之后,调用press("search") or press("enter")发现并没有什么反应。 这个时候就需要send_action函数了,这里用到了只有输入法才能用的IME_ACTION_CODEsend_action先broadcast命令发送给输入法操作IME_ACTION_CODE,由输入法完成后续跟EditText的通信。(原理我不太清楚,有了解的,提issue告诉我)


Show Toast"Hello world")"Hello world", 1.0) # show for 1.0s, default 1.0s

Get Toast

# [Args]
# 5.0: max wait timeout. Default 10.0
# 10.0: cache time. return cache toast if already toast already show up in recent 10 seconds. Default 10.0 (Maybe change in the furture)
# "default message": return if no toast finally get. Default None
d.toast.get_message(5.0, 10.0, "default message")

# common usage
assert "Short message" in d.toast.get_message(5.0, default="")

# clear cached toast
# Now d.toast.get_message(0) is None


For example: 其中一个节点的内容

  checkable="false" checked="false" clickable="false" enabled="true" focusable="false" focused="false"
  scrollable="false" long-clickable="false" password="false" selected="false" visible-to-user="true"
  bounds="[957,1602][1020,1636]" />



description -> content-desc
resourceId -> resource-id


# wait exists 10s
# find and click
# check exists
if d.xpath("//android.widget.TextView[contains(@text, 'Se')]").exists:
# get all text-view text, attrib and center point
for elem in d.xpath("//android.widget.TextView").all():
    print("Text:", elem.text)
    # Dictionary eg: 
    # {'index': '1', 'text': '999+', 'resource-id': 'com.netease.cloudmusic:id/qb', 'package': 'com.netease.cloudmusic', 'content-desc': '', 'checkable': 'false', 'checked': 'false', 'clickable': 'false', 'enabled': 'true', 'focusable': 'false', 'focused': 'false','scrollable': 'false', 'long-clickable': 'false', 'password': 'false', 'selected': 'false', 'visible-to-user': 'true', 'bounds': '[661,1444][718,1478]'}
    print("Attrib:", elem.attrib)
    # Coordinate eg: (100, 200)

Google uiautomator与uiautomator2的区别

  1. API相似但是不完全兼容
  2. uiautomator2是安卓项目,而uiautomator是Java项目
  3. uiautomator2可以输入中文,而uiautomator的Java工程需借助utf7输入法才能输入中文
  4. uiautomator2必须明确EditText框才能向里面输入文字,uiautomator直接指定父类也可以在子类中输入文字
  5. uiautomator2获取控件速度比uiautomator快
