Use Maestro locallyโ€‹

Flashlight runs Maestro tests in the cloud, so if the test is failing and still can't figure out why, it could be useful to test it locally on a device.

See how to:

Check wordings with Maestro Studioโ€‹

Using Maestro Studio, you can check if the wording you passed to Flashlight matches what Maestro expects.

Run Maestro test locallyโ€‹

You can also run your test

- clearState
- launchApp
- tapOn: "Text on the screen"
