Executing your Appium tests on real devices gives you more confidence in the quality of your application but on the other side it is costly when scaling. That’s why more and more people are adopting a hybrid strategy: testing on real devices and simulators/emulators depending on what needs to be tested. For example, using simulators/emulators for pull requests or small changes are simple cases where you can run your tests on those kind of devices. I developed Docker-Android to help user focus on writing the UI tests by leveraging the advantages of using a Docker such as having a ready to test infrastructure that will run on the same environment without having any knowledge on how to use tools on deploying the tests. For more scalability and having different device profiles in Android testing, I made evolution on the project to integrate with Genymotion Cloud. By simply defining devices in a JSON file, the user will be able to start Genymotion emulator(s) automatically on different cloud services, such as on SaaS, AWS, GCP and Alibaba and run Appium tests on them.
