Im little bit good at c# and not at JAVA , So is there any way to write Appium scripts on a MAC using c# ?

My target is to make some automation scripts to test an android and iOS build which developed using ionic framework.AKA Hybrid framework.

I went thru some tutorials on executing Appium/Selenium tests on a MAC and everything was written in JAVA which im not familiar very much.

Maybe you can make it working with Xamarin or the new Visual Studio for Mac (which is in Beta).

Here is a blog about Selenium with C# on a Mac with Xamarin: http://testerstories.com/2015/11/c-and-selenium-on-xamarin/

Microsoft is supporting C# in Mac with its new .Net Core: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/aspnet/core/tutorials/your-first-mac-aspnet

I would suspect that if Selenium works Appium would also work, but I think you are on your own. Certainly when you run into trouble, you will be one of the only trying and doing this.

Java looks a lot like C#, so maybe the switch is not so hard as you think it is. https://stackoverflow.com/questions/471448/tips-for-moving-from-c-sharp-to-java
