Why another doc on Appium?
My journey towards learning appium began with great excitement but road was quite bumpy too. Undoubtly http://appium.io/ has tons of information but it is enervating to find exact piece of information one is looking for m-site or app automation. Scanning through appium docs, stack overflow and tons of other online doc, one would be eventually able to find how to launch browser mobile browser on m-site. It took me three days to be able to launch website on chrome browser on android phone. But the struggle was worth it :-) And this was the main motivation behind writing this doc. A step by step description of how Appium could be set up to run tests on mobile site or app on a real mobile device or emulator. So lets begin learning Appium.
