Calabash vs. Appium: How Do They Compare?
In this post from Nabendu Biswas on Waldo’s blog, we’re going to learn about the mobile testing frameworks Calabash and Appium. There’s quite a bit of difference between both of them. Calabash is used mainly for acceptance testing, whereas Appium is used for automation testing. We’ll briefly discuss the two frameworks and then go over their advantages and disadvantages. Then we’ll see some usage examples for both of them. Finally, we’ll give our verdict on the best framework.
A Guide to Getting Started With AndroidX Test
AndroidX Test is a set of Jetpack libraries that focus on testing. Within AndroidX Test, you’ll find different tools, like JUnit and Espresso, for performing tests like unit tests, end-to-end tests, and more. The beauty of Jetpack (or AndroidX) is that it brings related tools built by Google into one place, making it easier to use such tools and follow best practices. In the past, some of the tools in AndroidX were either independent or part of the old Androidsupport libraries. The support libraries existed to improve compatibility across different Android versions and API levels. However, over time, as things evolved, issues like confusing multiple versions of the Android support libraries led to the creation of Jetpack. In this post from Pius Aboyi on Waldo’s blog, you’ll learn how to use the AndroidX Test libraries to write and run different tests for your Android app.
How to Implement Kingfisher in Swift
Images are always a problem in web apps and mobile apps. They take time to load, and if there are a lot of them, they can slow the app down. Imagine a social media app that has a lot of images. If the images are not loaded, when the user swipes up, then it will be a bad user experience. We can solve this problem with the image caching tool in Swift known as Kingfisher. In this post from Nabendu Biswas on Waldo’s blog, we will first talk about image caching, followed by an overview of Kingfisher. We are also going to create a simple iOS app and add Kingfisher to it to download images.
How to Start Using Spek As a Testing Platform
In this post from Nabendu Biswas on Waldo’s blog, we’re going to learn about Spek, a test framework for testing Android apps written in Kotlin or Java. The common way to test Android apps is with JUnit. Well, Spek requires JUnit, so it can easily be integrated into the existing setup. First, we’re going to learn about Spek. Then, we’ll create a small project in Kotlin and test it using Spek.
How to Create a Segmented Control in SwiftUI
In this article from Juan Reyes on Waldo’s blog, we’ll explore how to create an elegant and functional segmented control picker in SwiftUI. Not only will we learn what a segmented control is, but we’ll also build a fully-featured Pokémon starter picker utilizing a segmented picker and have a test workflow to validate our work. That’s right: By the end of this article, you’ll have a nice and shiny application to validate your work, and you’ll be able to pick your favorite Pokémon partner.
Getting Started with Unit Testing in Swift: A Guide
This article from Juan Reyes on Waldo’s blog aims to familiarize you with the basic concepts of Swift unit testing and get you comfortable with its implementation. You should be able to answer questions like “What is unit testing?”, “Why is unit testing important?”, and “What are unit testing best practices?” by the end of this article. Additionally, you will have a testable sample project containing everything you need to be empowered to make your code fully testable and production ready.

How to Get Started Using Detox to Test a React Native App
The emergence of the React Native framework has since been a huge win in building cross-platform mobile applications for iOS, Android, and the web platform from one codebase. While testing frameworks such as Appium and Jasmine exist to perform unit tests, component tests, and integration tests, Detox is good for enhancing the developer experience with the ability to implement end-to-end tests for their codebases. This article from Paul Oloyede on Waldo’s blog will examine the usage of Detox to test React Native applications with the aim to equip developers with the knowledge required to start testing with Detox.
Getting Started with FMDB and Swift: A Guide
Apple provides a few options for structured data storage, including JSON files, property lists, local SQL databases, Core Data, and CloudKit. All of these, except the local SQL database, have nice Swift interfaces. Apple includes SQLite in the iOS system libraries, which you can use as a local SQL database, but you have to deal with C-style functions to use it. Then FMDB came along. This article from Sasmito Adibowo on Waldo’s blog aims to help you get started with SQLite and FMDB using Swift to target iOS. You’ll learn how to create a database file, update it, query it, and perform transactions on it. This post is not a complete reference to SQL, SQLite, or FMDB.
Getting Started with EasyMock for Testing
Writing test cases is an integral part of software development. Many popular frameworks like Junit can help us with this. However, code development happens incrementally, so not all parts of the system are available for testing at once. For example, let’s say that you’ve written a service that calls two other services and merges their results. Yet those two services are not yet available. How can you test the code you’ve written? Find out more from Manoj Mokashi on Waldo’s blog.
AI Analytics Defined and Explained
AI analytics is a way to accumulate data and interpret human behavior according to market trends using statistical and mathematical methods to generate a stable and excellent business. Analytics generally refers to interpreting data to find different patterns and relationships. On the other hand, artificial intelligence (AI) refers to the imitation of human intelligence in a system so machines can think like humans. The combined terms generate the field of AI analytics. Find out more about AI analytics from Gourav Bais on Plutora’s blog.
Natural Language Queries: What They Are and How They Work
The rise of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) has enabled multiple businesses to grow. This has introduced new approaches to handling business solutions in a better and more effective way. Natural language queries (NLQ) is just one of them. It’s a mechanism that allows individuals to ask queries about data analysis. This kind of communication or exchange of data can be done by using any everyday language. NLQ allows users to ask data-related queries so that they can make business decisions. These queries can be typed or even spoken. Learn more from Gourav Bais on Plutora’s blog.
