Do I need appium to run Selenium script to run in Mobile Browser?


#1

Hi I am working for one ecommerce company. We have selenium automation for web based application. We don’t have any app since we have our website only. Now my manager is asking me to start with appium to run all my selenium script on Mobile browser so the way we can use our real device to test. I was wondering do i even need appium to run our Selenium automation script on Mobile Browser ? Please help me with appropriate answer. Thanks!!!

I believe you do. Appium just provides you the correct drivers (think FirefoxDriver vs ChromeDriver vs AppiumDriver). In theory that should be the only change (creating the appium driver for the phone you want to test with), all your other searches should still work (mostly)

Yes, you need Appium for running the script on Mobile Browser
