#pull_file(path) ⇒ Base64-decoded

Pull a file from the simulator/device. On iOS the server should have ifuse libraries installed and configured properly for this feature to work on real devices. On Android the application under test should be built with debuggable flag enabled in order to get access to its container on the internal file system.

Examples:


decoded_file = @driver.pull_file '/local/data/some/path'     #=> Get the file at that path
decoded_file = @driver.pull_file 'Shenanigans.app/some/file'
               #=> Get 'some/file' from the install location of Shenanigans.app
decoded_file = @driver.pull_file '@com.appium.example/Documents/file.txt'
               #=> Get 'file.txt' in @com.appium.example/Documents
File.open('proper_filename', 'wb') { |f| f<< decoded_file }

Parameters:

  • path (String)

    Either an absolute path OR, for iOS devices, a path relative to the app, as described. If the path starts with application id prefix, then the file will be pulled from the root of the corresponding application container. Otherwise the root folder is considered as / on Android and on iOS it is a media folder root (real devices only). Only pulling files from application containers is supported for iOS Simulator. Provide the remote path in format @bundle.identifier:container_type/relative_path_in_container (Make sure this in ifuse doc)

Returns:

  • (Base64-decoded)

    Base64 decoded data

#pull_folder(path) ⇒ Base64-decoded

Pull a folder content from the simulator/device. On iOS the server should have ifuse libraries installed and configured properly for this feature to work on real devices. On Android the application under test should be built with debuggable flag enabled in order to get access to its container on the internal file system.
