To set up Appium on your notebook, you’ll need to meet the following requirements:

  1. Operating System:

    • Appium supports macOS, Linux, and Windows operating systems. Ensure your notebook runs one of these.
  2. Node.js and NPM:

    • Install Node.js (version in the SemVer range ^14.17.0 || ^16.13.0 || >=18.0.0).
    • NPM (Node Package Manager) is usually bundled with Node.js, but you can upgrade it independently. Make sure your NPM version is >= 8.
  3. Appium Installation:

    • Install Appium globally using NPM:
      npm install -g appium
  4. Appium Server:

  5. Additional Dependencies:

Remember to adapt the installation steps to your specific environment. Happy testing! 🚀📱

The disk space requirements for installing Appium, Node.js, and npm are relatively modest:

  1. Appium:

    • By itself, Appium is lightweight and doesn’t have significant disk space requirements.
    • It can even run in resource-constrained environments like Raspberry Pi, as long as Node.js is available.
    • No specific disk space quota is needed for Appium alone.
  2. Node.js and npm:

    • Node.js and npm are essential for running Appium.
    • The installation of Node.js and npm doesn’t consume much disk space.
    • However, ensure you have enough space for other development tools and dependencies.

In summary, a few gigabytes of free space should suffice for installing Appium, Node.js, and npm on your notebook. Happy testing! 🚀📱
