I’m developing some iOS/Android apps using React Native.
React Native Views (https://facebook.github.io/react-native/docs/view.html) can have a testID value to allow them to be found when doing automated testing.
Using elementByName() I can find views by the testID values in Appium on iOS but not on Android - from digging around it looks like React Native puts the testID value into the the Android View’s tag (see https://github.com/facebook/react-native/blob/a99c5160eeeedec0d08afca1a7cda235418765f4/ReactAndroid/src/androidTest/java/com/facebook/react/testing/ReactTestHelper.java)
Is there any way to get at that using Appium? If not would it be difficult to add?
