PROGRAMMING
Mac OS API over Appium for testing cross-platform applications simultaneously

 A walkthrough of the key aspects of MAF – internal mobile automation API over Appium providing access to multiple devices on iOS and Android at runtime is described. The article covers some generic information about the Appium automation service, a personal challenge in the production environment (alongside the adopted solution) and a step-by-step tutorial covering the API installation and configuration.  Appium is an open source test automation framework for mobile apps. Currently supported platforms are iOS, Android and Windows which make use of the WebDriver protocol. It is also cross-platform meaning that it allows you to write tests for the previously mentioned platforms based on the same API. It enables code reusability across platform test cases as long as the UI of the applications is similar. To this end, it leads to a well-structured architecture of your testing framework. Another advantage of Appium is the flexibility of choosing the programming language for developing test cases. The currently supported ones are Java, Ruby, Python, PHP, JavaScript, and C\#.
