A wrapper for the Android adb tool. It's just adb on steroids.
Currently only some basic features are provided. These features should simplify and shorten the required adb commands.
Example workflow to kill an app when multiple devices are connected:
- A default device and app id is set in the config. This information is saved in a
.adbons.ymlfile. The file is either stored local (working dir) or global (
- Execute the kill command. With saved values, the app is just killed with
adbons killinstead of
adb -s <device> shell am force-stop <app id>.
Install adbons with
pip for Python 3 (usually
$ pip3 install adbons
Install from source:
$ git clone https://github.com/dbaelz/adbons.git $ cd adbons $ pip install .
adbons --help for all currently available commands. The commands provide help pages as well (e.g.
adbons config --help).
adbons is a Python 3.5 (and above) command line tool. It's still work in progress. Any suggestions, feature requests, bug reports or pull requests are very much appreciated.
