Bichromate now supports testing Windows Applications thru Winium


Winium is a new open source framework, that’s based on Selenium and consists of 3 parts:

  1.  Supports test automation on Windows applications.
  2.  Supports test automation on Windows Phone operating system context (home button, notifications bar, toggles etc.)
  3.  Supports test automation on Windows Phone applications.


In case you are already using Selenium WebDriver and familiar with its API, using  Winium is straightforward.


As a result of it’s being a new project, few struggles come in the way. Its API still isn’t complete and not on the same maturity level as other tools in this category.

Bottom line: In case you are considering Winium, I’ve tested it out and seems to work well.
