Automating Hybrid Applications with Appium
What99 Minute Workshop
When creating a mobile application, organisations have a few options to choose from; mobile web, native or a hybrid application. Where web apps are just websites that can be accessed on the internet via a mobile browser like Chrome or Safari, native apps are applications that are developed for a specific platform such as Android or iOS. Hybrid apps are different because they possess elements from native apps and web apps.
When automating web applications, Selenium commands are used. Nine out of ten times the same automation script can be used for mobile web applications as our desktop web applications. With native apps, however, we need to look deeper into the differences between Android and iOS apps before we can use Appium commands.
But how should you automate hybrid apps, can or do you need to choose one of the two automation strategies or is there also a hybrid approach for automating hybrid apps?
That’s what we are going to look at during this workshop. We will be looking into:
- how to detect a hybrid application for Android and iOS
- how to automate a webview
- how to switch between webviews
- how to use the full potential of automating hybrid apps
During this workshop we will be using a demo Hybrid app. After this workshop, you can use this app to explore more opportunities and practice your new skillset.
By the end of this workshop, you will have written your (first) hybrid cross-platform automation script for Android and iOS hybrid mobile applications.
