    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!
