This tutorial will make web UI testing easy. We will build a simple yet robust web UI test solution using Python, pytest, and Selenium WebDriver. We will learn strategies for good test design as well as patterns for good automation code. By the end of the tutorial, you’ll be a web test automation champ! Your Python test project can be the foundation for your own test cases, too.
📍 If you are looking for a single Python Package for Android, iOS and Web Testing – there is also an easy open source solution provided by TestProject. With a single executable, zero configurations, and familiar Selenium APIs, you can develop and execute robust Python tests and get automatic HTML test reports as a bonus! All you need is:
pip install testproject-python-sdk. Simply follow this Github link to learn more about it, or read through this great tutorial to get started.

This tutorial focused exclusively on web UI testing, but the same principles and techniques can be used for mobile app testing as well! Appium is an open source project built on top of WebDriver for testing both native mobile apps and mobile web browser apps. Python is one of many available language bindings for Appium. Since Appium is based on WebDriver, the API is similar, and page objects can be used.
