Building an Appium Driver to Automate Custom Built Hardware

September 21, 2021
Ayan Khan

With version 2.0, Appium aims to transition from being a server which bundles many drivers to one which by default doesn't bundle any drivers, and instead provides an interface for retrieving and using drivers. The main goal being: a more accessible and easy way to write new custom drivers.

But how useful would a custom Appium driver really be? What are its possible use cases? And is it worth the development effort?

During this talk from Appium Conference 2021, Ayan Khan highlights the capabilities and possible use cases of Appium 2.0 by giving a walkthrough of how we at HeadSpin satisfied a business requirement by creating a custom Appium driver for a custom piece of hardware.
