Test automation for native or hybrid Android apps and the mobile web with Selendroid.

Getting Started »


Selendroid is a test automation framework which drives off the UI of Android native and hybrid applications (apps) and the mobile web. Tests are written using the Selenium 2 client API - that's it!


Selendroid can be used on emulators and real devices and can be integrated as a node into the Selenium Grid for scaling and parallel testing.


The documentation specifies how to install and use Selendroid itself. The use of Selendroid requires knowledge about how to use Selenium. The official documentation of the WebDriver client API can be found here.
