Toolium is a Python wrapper tool of Selenium and Appium libraries to test web and mobile applications in a single project. It provides a way of choosing and configuring the driver through a configuration file, implements a Page Object pattern and includes a simple visual testing solution.

Getting Started

Run pip install toolium to install the latest version from PyPi. It’s highly recommendable to use a virtualenv.

The main dependencies are:

  • Selenium: to test web applications in major browsers (Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer, Edge or Safari)

  • Appium-Python-Client: to test mobile applications (native, hybrid or web) in Android or iOS devices/emulators.

  • requests: to test APIs

Using toolium-template

The easiest way of getting started is to clone toolium-template project, run the example test and add your own tests and configuration.

$ git clone
$ cd toolium-template
$ pip install -r requirements.txt

Now, just follow toolium-template instructions to know how to start your testing project.

Running toolium-examples

You can also clone toolium-examples to get more examples about how to use the library to test web, Android or iOS applications, in different scenarios.

$ git clone
$ cd toolium-examples
$ pip install -r requirements.txt

Now, just follow toolium-examples instructions to run the examples of the tests.
