This is exciting! Is it built on Xcode's existing UI Testing framework or XCTest?
Hey Joe,EarlGrey right now is based on XCTest. However, the next version being worked on right now should integrate EarlGrey with XCUITest. Do feel free to contribute.
Hi Joe,this is built on XCTest. Read more here : https://github.com/google/EarlGrey/blob/master/README.mdThanks!
Will Earl Grey be able to handle mobile Web Automation?
Hi Mathew, EarlGrey already has some support for UIWebView / WKWebView used in hybrid apps. If you meant something else, i'd follow up with them on https://github.com/google/EarlGrey
why should I chose EarlGrey instead of xcode UI test framework? What are the difference between them?
good question. no one reply?
While this is a longer discussion, in a nutshell, this is the main advantage to using EarlGrey:EarlGrey is a grey-box framework rather and a black box framework like XCUITest. You have access to the app's state and the app's variables which makes EarlGrey more versatile. You can create custom matchers, actions and assertions that can utilize all these features to provide a wider coverage.Please feel free to message us on our Google Group to have a more in-depth discussion.
