WebDriverAgent is a WebDriver server implementation for iOS that can be used to remote control iOS devices. It allows you to launch & kill applications, tap & scroll views or confirm view presence on a screen. This makes it a perfect tool for application end-to-end testing or general purpose device automation. It works by linking

XCTest.framework
and calling Apple's API to execute commands directly on a device. WebDriverAgent is developed and used at Facebook for end-to-end testing and is successfully adopted by Appium.

Archiving

We are archiving WebDriverAgent. Thanks to the community who have used it! The code will remain here for your future use, but will no longer be actively supported by Facebook.

In May 2019, we open sourced IDB, “iOS Development Bridge”, a command line interface for automating iOS Simulators and Devices. We are currently migrating our own internal projects from WDA to IDB, and suggest checking it out as an alternative.

More information on IDB: * Project on GitHub * Talk from 2019 F8
