Getting Started

Welcome to MoQuality! We're glad you're here.

What is MoQuality for Appium?

MoQuality for Appium is a lab environment for creating, debugging, running and maintaining your Appium tests. It is divided into two parts: a command-line tool and the dashboard. The command-line tool starts a local appium server and keeps track of debugging information that might be useful. The dashboard shows you this information in the form of before and after screenshots, timing metrics, readable step descriptions and so on. It generates this report while the test is running. You can download this as a test report too.

Why Appium?

Appium is an open-source test automation framework for use with native, hybrid and mobile web apps. It drives iOS, Android, and Windows apps using the WebDriver protocol. With MoQuality, you can write Appium tests in NodeJS (wd or WebDriver), Java or Python.

We recommend using Appium for mobile test automation because of its flexibility, scalability and generous support from the testing community. Appium is suitable for both native apps and mobile web testing when real devices and real browsers are used in testing.
