Starting Appium Via launchd

In a recent project I needed to find a way of getting the Appium node.js app to run all the time on an iOS CI server. The requirements were as follows:

  1. Appium must be run from the checked out Git repository
  2. Launch Appium on start-up, in case the server needs to be rebooted
  3. If Appium crashes (it does sometimes), relaunch the server
  4. Output stdout and stderror to a log file that I can easily view using Console.app to debug problems with Appium

This was achieved with the following launchd plist configuration file placed in ~/Library/LaunchAgents/.

 

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
<plist version="1.0">
    <dict>
        <key>KeepAlive</key>
        <dict>
            <key>SuccessfulExit</key>
            <false/>
        </dict>
        <key>Label</key>
        <string>com.companyname.appium</string>
        <key>ProgramArguments</key>
        <array>
            <string>/usr/local/bin/node</string>
            <string>/Users/Mike/Projects/appium/server.js</string>
        </array>
    	<key>Debug</key>
		<true/>
        <key>RunAtLoad</key>
        <true/>
        <key>WorkingDirectory</key>
        <string>/Users/Mike/Projects/appium/</string>
		<key>StandardOutPath</key>
		<string>/Users/Mike/Library/Logs/appium.log</string>
		<key>StandardErrorPath</key>
		<string>/Users/Mike/Library/Logs/appium_error.log</string>
    </dict>
</plist>

 

The WorkingDirectory setting is required, as Appium uses it to locate the instruments/client.js file.

Start the agent by running:


launchctl load ~/Library/LaunchAgents/<configuration name>.plist

Or stop it by running:


launchctl unload ~/Library/LaunchAgents/<configuration name>.plist

Hope this helps!
