Detox: Tackling the Flakiness of Mobile Automation
At Wix we want to release our application as often as possible to meet needs of our 5 million users. Naturally, all mobile apps require testing, but a lot of it is done manually.
The most difficult part of automated testing on mobile is the tip of the testing pyramid – E2E tests. The core of the problem with E2E is flakiness, which results in unreliable tests. We believe that the only way to tackle this flakiness head on is by moving from black box testing to gray box testing. And for that, React Native mobile apps automation library – Detox – is being used.
