Starting Appium server programmatically on MAC


#1

Using the below string for Windows.

cmd /c “C:/Program Files (x86)/Appium/node.exe” “C:/Program Files (x86)/Appium/node_modules/appium/bin/Appium.js” --address 127.0.0.1 --chromedriver-port 9516 --bootstrap-port 4725 --selendroid-port 8082 --no-reset --local-timezone

Can anyone let me know the equivalent for Mac?


Integration of Appium with jenkins
#2

Got the Solution:-

/Applications/Appium.app/Contents/Resources/node_modules/appium/bin/appium.js --address 127.0.0.1 --chromedriver-port 9516 --bootstrap-port 4725 --selendroid-port 8082 --no-reset --local-timezone

copy the appium app to Applications folder first


#3

It should be something like this:

/bin/sh /Applications/Appium.app/Contents/Resources/node/bin/node /Applications/Appium.app/Contents/Resources/node_modules/appium/bin/appium.js --address 127.0.0.1 --chromedriver-port 9516 --bootstrap-port 4725 --no-reset --local-timezone

Hi,

The best way to launch appium is

create a bash file with “/usr/local/bin/appuim” (ignore quotation) command

name it as Appium.command, Whenever you required to launch the appium call the bash file

Thx


#5

I think this will launch the Appium UI app… how are you going to automate the process of setting the server configurations??

We are taking about starting the Appium server programmatically with server configurations, not starting the UI app…


#6

On OS X, I just install appium using npm:

$ npm install -g appium

I have /usr/local/bin in my $PATH (if you don’t you will need to add it), so I can then just start appium from the command line and issue any options I need. I leave the window open so that I can see the appium console messages.

$ appium --port 4723 --safari

Obviously, in this case you are not fiddling with Appium.app and its GUI, but running a ‘different’ appium installed as a node module.

Have fun …

Hey Hassan, I tried this and I am getting the following message:
/Applications/Appium.app/Contents/Resources/node/bin/node: cannot execute binary file.
Is there something I am missing?
Thanks!
Pavel


#8

Can you please elaborate more?? Did you do this from the command line? or programmatically?? can you provide your code??


#9

I haven’t written the code yet. Just tried to run this remotely via SSH:
open /Applications/Appium.app/Contents/Resources/node/bin/node /Applications/Appium.app/Contents/Resources/node_modules/appium/bin/appium.js --args --address 127.0.0.1 --port 4723 --full-reset
The document “appium.js” could not be opened. iOS Simulator cannot open files in the “JavaScript script” format.


#10

I tried it on Mac OS 10.9 and it is working correctly as the following screenshot shows:

Applications/Appium.app/Contents/Resources/node/bin/node /Applications/Appium.app/Contents/Resources/node_modules/appium/bin/appium.js

I am not sure why it is showing "iOS Simulator" in your error message!!! Can you try locally without SSH??


#11

Happens the same…
Perhaps I need to restart or something…
Thanks for the reply!


#12

please try to restart and maybe execute it programmatically and see what happens :smile:


#13

Alright, looks like the Reset indeed helped here. But, I see that I still need to launch it somehow as I am getting: System.Net.Sockets.SocketException: No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it
Is there an additional parameter I need to pass to launch it automatically?
Thanks!


#14

Alright. Found it! Here’s the syntax for future reference:

node /Applications/Appium.app/Contents/Resources/node_modules/appium/bin/appium.js --address 127.0.0.1 --port 4723 --full-reset
–device-name “iPhone 6”
–platform-name iOS
–platform-version “8.3”
–app “/My.app”
–browser-name iOS -l

Cheers, Pavel


#15

This means that node executable is added to your system variables… Glad it worked :smile:

#16

Hey, it’s me, bugging again :smile:
After I managed to launch Appium via terminal I am trying to do so programmatically using SSH.NET library (my tests being written in .Net)
This is how I initiate the test:

            SshClient ssh = new SshClient(myURL, 22, myUser, myPass);
        string unixCommand = "node /Applications/Appium.app/Contents/Resources/node_modules/appium/bin/appium.js --address 127.0.0.1 --port 4723 --full-reset --device-name \"iPhone 6\" --platform-name iOS --platform-version \"8.3\" --app \"myApp.app\" --browser-name iOS -l --log /Users/QA/Library/Logs/Appium/1.log";
        {
            ssh.Connect();
            ssh.RunCommand(unixCommand);
            ssh.Disconnect();

Now for some reason, Appium is initiated successfully with my tested app in the emulator and all. But then, I get stuck in the RunCommand part until the session times out.
I expect to move on to ssh.Disconnect but I just get stuck there in the initiation.
Any idea?
Thanks, Pavel
