Marathon is a fast and platform-independent test runner focused on performance and stability. Marathon offers easy to use platform
implementations for Android and iOS as well as an API for use with custom hardware farms.
Marathon implements multiple key concepts related to test execution such as test batching, device pools, test sharding, test sorting,
preventive retries as well as post-factum retries. By default, most of these are set to conservative defaults but custom configurations
are encouraged for those who want to optimize performance and/or stability.
Marathon’s primary focus is on full control over the balance between stability of test execution and the overall test run performance.
For versions of Ubuntu between 14.04 LTS (Trusty Tahr) and 15.10 (Wily Werewolf), as well as Ubuntu flavours that don’t include snap by default, snap can be installed from the Ubuntu Software Centre by searching for snapd.
Alternatively, snapd can be installed from the command line:
sudo apt update
sudo apt install snapd
Either log out and back in again, or restart your system, to ensure snap’s paths are updated correctly.
To install marathon, simply use the following command:
