[Robot Framework] Run Process and continue using Sikuli Commands

Asked by deepak on 2018-07-04

I am using Robot Framework with Sikuli Library thanks to Rainmanwy's GitHub project.
I added Robot Framework's another library "Process" and started using Run Process "myapp".
The immediate next thing I wanted to use is sikuli library command on myapp window.
But the problem I face is my sikuli commands are never executed and myapp remains in open status.

*** Settings ***
Suite Setup Start Sikuli Process
Suite Teardown Stop Remote Server

Library SikuliLibrary mode=NEW
Library Process
....
*** Test Cases ***
MyTestCase
    Run Process MyApp shell=True
    Wait Until Screen Contain entities.png 10
    Click filemenu.png

Is there a way out to use both libraries on the same app? Or the myapp launched can never be used like this, whats the reason?

Looks like
Run Process MyApp shell=True

does not delegate to a new thread, so it does not come back immediately and hence blocks the continuation of the testcase.

Consult the relevant docs.

Can you help with this problem?
