Dear Testdroiders,

We hosted a webinar about Appium and our new feature – server-side execution – this Tuesday. The feedback I’ve got has been truly awesome and we’d like to share those materials with you.

We recently released a new version of Testdroid Cloud and in this version we’ve introduced a feature that enables running Appium tests on our side, server-side. Basically, with this Appium/Selenium users are not required to configure desired capabilities as they would do with current client-side execution. We call this implementation Appium Server-Side execution that basically means that test scripts can run locally on our environment – you just upload your .APK or .IPA and test package to Testdroid Cloud and our our system takes care of proper configuration and manages all details for desired capabilities. New to Appium? Download our free beginner’s guide and learn how to set up a proper Appium environment step-by-step.

If you are interested to know more about Appium Server-side execution, you might also want to check out this blog.

In case you want to try it out with the example project that was demonstrated in this webinar, please let me know and I’ll be happy to share the project with you on Testdroid Cloud.

Enjoy the on-demand webinar!

  • Do we have a github or something to download the structure ? I am trying to use it with python appium tests, and need to know what directly structure it accepts. Thanks again.
