Recommended setup and environment

Hi there.

Is there any kind of strongly recommended environment and setup settings for appium testing?
By this I mean the way appium is launched, java and node js versions, and how they installed.
That could help to eliminate the environment setup discussions where someone have to list all of his or her setup, and nobody can help as everyone did it the own way.

The recommended and standard setup can help to reproduce and test issues, or find problems quickly. I did not find any official info of that kind like “Completely tested with node v… and java…, run with root priveleges and so on” for release versions.

Is there are anything like this and if not then on what versions and how appium releases are tested and validated?


If you only need to test Android then Docker could be a good solution

Is there docker image for appium available?
