I have been using appium to control a remote machine, (macbook to iOS) quite happily, but when setting up a local server, having some pain with basic things not working. I am wanting to just use inspector to get a new local server set up.
I started my local server
I typed in my connection capabilities, hit save-as
hit connect, server promptly closes
So how do I find any server log files? I find this kind of silently just closing the process not great.
I discover the cause is that I am trying to connect to an “Android”, but the saved capablities set still has “iOS” in the platformName parameter - all because the “save JSON” button actually does nothing at all. THe last capabilities I carefully added have been all thrown away.
I hand type them all in again, correctly, and get a bit further, and get some useful error message now. But 2 hours later the save button is still not actually working.
I have 3 capability sets, the iOS ones for remote server connect work fine.
I’m missing something basic here, any clues?
