Documentation

Gem enabling appium support in capybara

Please use v1.4.1 for Capybara 2.x users. v1.5.0 requires Capybara 3.x.

Driver Setup

Set up the appium_capybara driver by running this before starting your test.

require 'appium_capybara'

desired_caps_ios = {
  platform:        "Mac",
  deviceName:      "iPhone Simulator",
  platformName:    "iOS",
  platformVersion: "12.4",
  app:             "full/path/to/app.zip"
}

url = "http://localhost:4723/wd/hub" # or a sauce labs url

Capybara.register_driver(:appium) do |app|
    appium_lib_options = {
      server_url: url
    }
    all_options = {
      appium_lib: appium_lib_options,
      caps: desired_caps_ios
    }
    Appium::Capybara::Driver.new app, all_options
end

Capybara.default_driver = :appium

Capybara server

appium_capybara driver automatically starts a Rails server in test environment.

By default Capybara starts this web server listening to localhost only and on a random port. It is advised to force Capybara to listen to all interface and listen to a specific port, and set this server address in your mobile application.

Capybara.server_host = '0.0.0.0' # Listen to all interfaces
Capybara.server_port = 56844     # Open port TCP 56844, change at your convenience

Call methods

appium_capybara provides both Capybara methods and appium_lib methods.

capy_driver = Capybara.current_session.driver

# Calls methods defined in Appium::Capybara::Driver and Capybara::Selenium::Driver
capy_driver.find_custom :name, '<enter text>'

# Calls methods defined in only appium_lib (Appium::Driver)
capy_driver.appium_driver.find_element(:name, 'TextFields').click
capy_driver.appium_driver.hide_keyboard

Publishing to rubygems
