How to test electron application using Appium?

Does Appium now support electron?

I can’t give a definitely yes or no answer:

  • There are multiple tickets opened in the platform about Electron with no answers whatsoever.
  • There is not official documentation about how to use WebApps in desktop, like Electron

I would say there is not support for Electron out of the box, given this response:

There is no direct Electron support in Appium. Electron itself supports Selenium webdriver out of the box as described in One could try to create a dedicated Appium driver similar to what Spectron is doing.
