Appium Desktop and Appium Inspector

September 13, 2021
Jonathan Lipps

If you’ve ever used Appium before, you’ve probably explored Appium Desktop and Appium Inspector, the two critical tools that help simplify writing your automation scripts and drive test development. One of the best factors about the Appium Desktop is that it comes as an entire package with npm and Node.js, which can be simply downloaded and installed to activate the Appium server. The Appium Inspector, on the other hand, serves as a graphical user interface Appium client that enables you to just enter some capabilities into test fields and click to start a session. In this webinar with the Test Tribe, we do a deep dive into Appium Desktop and Inspector. Topics we discuss include:

  • What Appium Desktop and Inspector are, and how they work
  • How to install and use Appium Desktop and Inspector, especially now that these have been split into two apps
  • A tour of recent updates with demos
  • A surprise feature that will make running the Inspector much easier!
