Greetings, Appium citizens! The Appium team is delighted to announce that we are ready for you to begin beta testing the brand-new Appium GUI, called “Appium Desktop”. If you’re anxious to get to the download, head on over to https://github.com/appium/appium-desktop and read until you find the download instructions.
For those of you still reading: Appium Desktop is a brand-new cross-platform GUI frontend for Appium, built to run on Mac, Windows, and Linux. It strives for elegance and simplicity, and will hopefully be a great way to point-and-click your way into running an Appium server. The best part about Appium Desktop? It comes bundled with an Inspector you can use to run sessions with Appium and look at your app and your app’s hierarchy while doing so. It’s a great way to explore the structure of your app and figure out how to locate elements you want to interact with in your scripts.
This is definitely still in beta, so hit it hard and raise any issues on the GitHub tracker (please see the README for instructions on raising issues). Have fun!
