[Question] Why use "appium-device-farm" over Selenium Grid?

See original GitHub issue

@saikrishna321 @SrinivasanTarget @sudharsan-selvaraj I was pretty blown away when I gave appium-device-farm and appium-dashboard-plugin I try over the weekend. I can see a lot of benefits and use cases for using something like this over Selenium Grid, which requires a lot more overhead to maintain. I was hoping to get your takes on why this should be used over Selenium Grid (may be good to include in README as well)

Reasons to use appium-device-farm

  • Native testing only (Appium)
  • Easy setup for single machine infrastructure
  • More session info out-of-box when coupled with appium-dashboard

Reasons to use Grid

  • Native and web app testing (Appium and Selenium)
  • Supports Appium (Grid 3 only) and Selenium
