Run functional Mocha tests with wd and Appium.
This plugin requires Grunt.
If you haven't used Grunt before, be sure to check out the Getting Started guide, as it explains how to create a Gruntfile as well as install and use Grunt plugins. Once you're familiar with that process, you may install this plugin with this command:
npm install grunt-mocha-appium --save-dev
The "mochaAppium" task will use the Appium test automation framework to provide a selenium bridge to native and hybrid applications. Tests are written using mocha
Appium needs to be installed separately. See their getting started guide for information on installing and configuring Appium on you system. You don't need to start an Appium server before running this task, you just need to have it installed.
In your project's Gruntfile, add a section named
the data object passed into
gruntinitConfigmochaAppium:options:// Mocha optionsreporter: 'spec'timeout: 30e3// Toggles wd's promises API, default:falseusePromises: false// Path to appium executable, default:'appium'appiumPath: 'appium'iphone:src: 'test/*.js'options:// Appium OptionsdeviceName: 'iPhone Simulator'platformName: 'iOS'version: '6.1'// A url of a zip file containg your .app package// or// A local absolute path to your simulator-compiled .app directoryapp: '';
All options are passed to Mocha and WD. See their documentation for everything you might want to configure.
The following options can be supplied to the task:
Boolean Default value:
If enabled, this will use the promise-enabled wd browser API instead of the normal synchronous API.
String Default value:
If provided, this will be used as the location of the appium binary on your system. If you've installed appium with npm and appium is in your path you probably won't need to configure this.
In lieu of a formal styleguide, take care to maintain the existing coding style. Add unit tests for any new or changed functionality. Lint and test your code using Grunt.
