Appium and Wkwebview


#1

Hi Team,

Currently we use Appium for our IOS Automation and working fine with webview until IOS 7 devices. But for IOS 8 devices, its not working fine with wkwebview.

Can you please let me know if Appium supports for ios 8 devices with wkwebview?

Amy help on this will be very much grateful.

Thanks,
Vidhya

does wkwebview not support the remote debugger? that’s what we use to talk to the webview

+1 … Appium doesn’t seem to be aware of wkwebview contexts. I can interact with these webviews with Safari’s web inspector however. This is a blocker for testing hybrid webapps.

Does being able to access the wkwebview with Safari’s web inspector imply that the remote debugger is supported? Possibly related:

It probably doesn’t matter, but I’m using Appium-Python_Client 0.20.

I’m blocked by this as well. Are there any plans for Appium to support wkwebview?

Not able to inspect WKwebview in appium.
Any solution to work with WKwebview with iOS 11 ?

Using Appium 1.7.2 server
iOS 11.2
Xcode 9.2

Hello,

Any update here?
We too are using latest Appium(Server 1.7.2) with iOS 11.2 for automation.
It does’nt seem to recognize html elements inside the WkWebView.

Regards
