2.How to get started

Our project is based on Python, so all the scripts written are Python code. It is recommended that you learn the basics of Python syntax before using them. For first-time users, you can read our "5-Minute Quick Start Automation Testing with Airtest+Poco" tutorial to get a quick understanding of the entire project. At the same time, we provide a series of tutorials for various usage scenarios and platforms, making it convenient for everyone to quickly understand them.

When writing automation scripts, you can use the AirtestIDE editor to quickly write scripts.

Our automation scripts, as well as Airtest and Poco, are all based on Python, so you can also use your favorite Python editor to write scripts.
