A wrapper for the Calabash testing framework for use with Titanium Mobile
npm install -g titanium. The appc npm package is not compatible.
Yes. Calabash for Appcelerator Titanium (vanilla and Alloy) iOS and Android This includes to physical devices as well as Simulators/Emulators
Install the module with:
npm install -g ticalabash
Enter the password you normally enter for
sudo when requested.
Use sudo before npm install if you get an
Error: EACCES message.
Appcelerator installs npm in such a way that it requires on a Mac or Linux that you use sudo. This is technically wrong when viewed by from the Node.js perspective. The following explanation is how to fix this issue.
No Warranty is provided for this solution.
sudo npm install yourself, because it is bad practice and will break the installation process. It's better to correctly set the permissions on the
/usr/local directory instead, so you don't have to ever use
sudo again when installing npm packages.
sudo chown -R $USER /usr/local
This solution presumes you are a single user on the machine.
To test TiCalabash, create a default Alloy application and run:
ti calabash --platform=[android,ios]
After lots of compiling, you should see:
Feature: Home ScreenAs an App DeveloperI want to see an example feature work on a default alloy appSo that I can start using TiCalabash quicklyScenario: See Home Screen # features/home_screen.feature:6Given I am on the Home Screen # features/step_definitions/ticalabash_custom_steps.rb:1Then I should see text containing "Hello, World" # calabash-cucumber-0.11.3/features/step_definitions/calabash_steps.rb:384And take picture # calabash-cucumber-0.11.3/features/step_definitions/calabash_steps.rb:2291 scenario (1 passed)3 steps (3 passed)

(The iOS documentation is far superior to the Android documentation and is mostly valid for Android as well).
If you don't have a features directory at the project root level, it will be created.
ti calabash command will rebuild your Android or iOS app every time.

Codexcasts.com is producing a two part series on how to use TiCalabash.
TiCalabash: Intermediate Testing -- Coming Aug 11,2015
After these two episode are releases, Codex Labs, LLC will be checking the feedback to see if producting an Advanced episode has enough interest. stay tuned :-)
The following slide deck may be of use: TiCalabash: Fully automated Acceptance Testing @ TiConf EU 2014
If you want to integrate TiCalabash in Jenkins, use the following configuration:
cd ~/Desktop/ticonf2014testappdemo/alloytest # or actually pull from git.titanium clean titanium build --platform=iphone --test &sleep 30killall "iPhone Simulator"export PATH=“/Users/andrewmcelroy/.rbenv/shims:/Users/andrewmcelroy/bin:/usr/local/bin: /Users/andrewmcelroy/.rbenv/bin:/Users/andrewmcelroy/android/tools:/Users/andrewmcelroy/android/: /Users/andrewmcelroy/android//tools:/Users/andrewmcelroy/android/platform-tools/:/usr/bin:/bin: /usr/sbin:/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/local/git/bin:"echo | titanium calabash —platform=iphonecd ~/Library/Application Support/iPhone Simulator/7.1/Applications/AppGUID = $(ﬁnd . -name "alloytest" | cut -d "/" -f 2)cp "~/Library/Application Support/iPhone Simulator/7.1/Applications/$AppGUID/Documents/jenkins.xml" $WORKSPACE/jenkins.xml

soon. A strider module that seamlessly integrates with TiCalabash is coming whenever Andrew can finish the module.
Training by Codex Labs for TiCalabash is in the planning stage.
In lieu of a formal styleguide, take care to maintain the existing coding style. Add unit tests for any new or changed functionality.
1.1.2 - Updated calabash-android to 0.5.5 and calabash-cucumber to 0.12.2 ( iOS 8 compatibility) 1.0.4 - Added Sample features
1.0.0 - TiCalabash wraps calabash
