Hildon Test Automation

Overview  Documentation  Installation  rocknroleAndExamples  Usage

The Hildon Test Automation project uses dogtail to automate testing of hildon and gtk widgets and also hildon desktop applications.

We decided to extend the approach of using the tree APIs (did not focus much on the procedural-way).
What started as writing wrappers for individual applications and helper-functions took a different turn as we moved along.

A small class was developed to hold a dogtail node and all the nodes under it as attributes and some search utilities were written.
After some syntactic-sugar-sprinkling, to aid faster development and easier maintenance, we had the class RNR (rocknrole - as it works on rolenames).

A few methods have been added to be used with unittest  - some to check states and another to help compare screenshots of nodes, the last is an extension of utils.screenshots function from dogtail.
