Setting up Appium Server

Go to and download appium server. You have couple of option which appium to download
1. appium UI
2. appium nodeJs

I prefer nodeJs as I can launch it directly from code through command line terminal. However some times I use the UI version to inspect the elements. You can even launch the Inspector from terminal, hmm need to figure out and would be posting soon.

To work with appium on ease,I would recommend you to have your own MAC laptop with SDK 6. SDK 7 should also be fine but preferebly SDK 6 is recommended.

1. Open up your mac terminal
2. Type the command sudo npm install -g appium

3.You should see appium getting downloaded and installedThat's it. What's next?1.You should have your Sample IOS app '.app'2. Get xCode 4.6 installed
3.Download the sample app source code from the URL
4. Open the code in xCode and build and run the app on Simulator. Good now you have your .app file built in project's product folder. Get the path of the app and note it some where (Check the below Image)

Next? Setting up your appium server to run your tests. Initially we will see how to setup appium server for Simulator tests.
1.Open the terminal and just run the command appium &
2.You should see the messages in the terminal that appium server is started on port 4723. This is the default port and can be customized later.
3.All set to run your tests.
