From some point of views this post can be related to a feature, or can be related to a bug, because I will talk about Tapster bot.
Some monthes ago my company bought a Tapster bot and I started to work on it. Appium was at its 1.4 version, and code for controlling the bot was available in the ios-controller.js.
For several voodoo reasons, the project I worked on was delayed, and I resumed it few weeks ago.
I have found that there was no more code about the Tapster bot in Appium since, I think, the big refactoring from Appium 1.4 to Appium 1.5. No management of desired capabilities, no management of parameters, and missing code in ios-driver.
I would like to know how I can help the team to improve Appium (I have targeted appium-base-driver, appium-ios-driver, appium-android-driver) so as to make it deal with Tapster 2 robot. What could be the best way? What things must be done? Are there any documentation to explain the glue between Appium, the bot and their dependancies?
I hope we may work together to bring this kind project back to Appium
