πŸ”Œ Concordia Compiler Plug-in for CodeceptJS with Appium

Generates and executes test scripts for mobile or desktop applications. Uses CodeceptJS with Appium.

What's New


  • Version 2.x works with Concordia 2.0.0 or above.
  • Version 1.x works with Concordia 1.0.0 or above.


Note: If you want to test a web-based mobile or desktop application, you will have to install Java 8 or above, since Appium will need WebDriverIO, which requires Java.

  1. Access your application's folder from the terminal/console.

  2. Install it via Concordia or NPM:

    a) Installation via Concordia:

    concordia --plugin-install codeceptjs-appium

    b) Installation via NPM:

    npm i -D concordialang-codeceptjs-appium

You may also like to install

  1. Appium Doctor, if you are testing a mobile application

Attempts to diagnose and fix common Node, iOS and Android configuration issues before starting Appium.

npm i -g appium-doctor
  1. Appium Desktop, if you are testing a desktop application. It has its own installer

Appium Server and Inspector in Desktop GUIs for Mac, Windows, and Linux

Environment setup

Unfortunately, the setup process for testing mobile or desktop applications with Appium requires some manual effort.

Appium provides automation for a particular platform through a driver. Every driver comes with its own setup requirements - usually the same ones for app development. For example, to automate the tests of an Android app, you will need to install Android SDK. Likewise, an iOS app will need iOS SDK.

Appium Drivers:

Install the appropriate driver to test your application.

After installing it, you may want to set the Desired Capabilities.


Execute it with the Concordia Compiler. Example:

concordia --plugin codeceptjs-appium

Configuration file

CodeceptJS reads its configuration from codeceptjs.json. This plug-in adds the "Appium" to the property helpers with a very basic configuration:

	"helpers": {
		"Appium": {
			"platform": "Android",
			"app": "http://localhost",
			"device": "emulator"

Please see the Helper Configuration for details on how to configure it properly.

Supported CodeceptJS commands

See concordialang-codeceptjs-core.
