I was wondering if anyone here know some courses or tutorials to set up and start to use Appium, I want to use it on my Mac to do automation tests on iOS and Android.

I have already looked at the official Website of Appium but I am a bit confused and lost to set everything up. So if you know anything that could help me that would be wonderful!

  • Have you read this? appium.io/getting-started.html?lang=ru

  • Yes and I feel their website really confusing, from a page to another there are different instructions for the same idea and so at the end I have the impression to go in the wrong direction.

  • Sounds stupid but in this sentence: Run npm install. When running npm install, make sure to be on Xcode 8+ What do they mean on Xcode 8+?
