Cross platform testing on Mac and Windows

Asked by Joshua Bouzy on 2021-01-08

Can SikuliX perform cross-platform testing on Windows and Mac? We have a product that has a Windows app (exe) and a Mac version (dmg). We want to know if SikuliX will be able to utilize the same test script to perform automation testing on both platforms.

The images come from a central location, so we believe this should not be an issue, but we wanted to know if there were any limitations we may be missing.

I am doing this for the last 8-9 years :-)
You need to consider:
1. Images may be different on different OS
2. Almost certainly you may need to handle specifics dialog on different OS - like save dialog
3. Whenever using path variables make sure you use python well to make paths multi-platform
4. Any execution of external programs will be different (UI or console ones)

Can you help with this problem?
