Robot Framework for automation native MacOS applications


I’m looking to automate some test cases for a MacOS application and I’m wondering if Robot Framework is capable of this and if there are any resources on how to go around in doing this.

Thank you!

Hi Spark,

There are 2 libraries I know of that will do MacOS native applications:

Both work by image recognition and clicking on co-ordinates relative to the recognised image.

imagehorizonlibrary is native python, but there are some bugs in it (some i’ve submitted fixes for)
SikuliLibrary I’ve had more success with but has a dependancy on java and is a little harder to setup.

If your Mac has a retina display then I would suggest starting with SikuliLibrary.
