Welcome to CulebraTester.
Android testing can be complicated, time-consuming, and tedious. What if it didn’t have to be? CulebraTester provides a real-time point and click test recording through a web browser. This browser is connected to the Android device under test. Not sure what we mean?
Here’s how CulebraTester works.
The tests that are generated:
- cover real-world as well as edge case user scenarios
- are repeatable
- are scalable
- are human-readable and editable
- can be used across different devices and device types
- can be wrapped and integrated into test suites
Polishing the Generated Tests
The test generated looks like the one you see above. It traces the recorded actions, including:
- Events using as particular UiAutomator BySelectors as possible.
- Intelligent swipes, drags, and other complex interactions - e.g. 'pressHome' - which include sleeps when necessary.
- UiAutomator Test Class boilerplate.
- A Java file which can be loaded directly into an Android Studio project and edited to add asserts.
- add assertions
- customize or add complex if branches
- add dependencies
- customize sleep and wait times
A Culebra is a snake, and CulebraTester is snaky because it is small, and sometimes hidden, but still a dangerously powerful tool which can slither it's way into any Android application's dark corner. CulebraTester grew out of the AndroidViewClient Android testing toolkit project, and it's own python child: Culebra.
