• Not able to get it running on GitHub Actions
  • Timing issues locally where characters typed end up out-of-order
  • Silent test failures with no error output: is there no such element? Is it invisible? Covered? etc.

    • Building a custom development client seemed fine: it could interact with that home screen

  • Seems like it should be agnostic to RN architectural changes
  • Maestro Studio helps to get selectors for elements
  • YAML-based API makes it less tempting to create overly-complex tests
