Using Drone with Appium

Hi there!

I’m from the Keycloak QE team and we’d like to use the Appium project for our mobile testing.

We need to test both Android and iOS so Droidium is not an option for us, unfortunately.

Our testsuite is build around the Drone extension so we’d like to keep it that way if possible.

I’ve came across Drone extension for Appium and [ARQ-2038] Create Drone extension for Appium - JBoss Issue Tracker but it seems there was no development regarding this since last year.

What options do we have?

Is Drone extension really necessary to use Appium?

Couldn’t we somehow use a custom/Appium’s webdriver instance with Drone just like that? (I haven’t found a way to do this yet.)
