Make Ranorex work on linux
It would be great if we can use Ranorex on linux, then we can test applications developed for linux.
Thank you for your input.
However, be aware that it’s not as easy as saying “If Ranorex works on Linux, I can also test my Linux applications”. Porting Ranorex Studio to Linux would itself already be a huge feat, but technology support for the different UI technologies would also have to be implemented. So which UI technology to support? Java (Swing, AWT, SWT, FX, …) might seem logical, because it’s platform-independent. However, it doesn’t work like this, because we would still have to develop a new, Linux-based plugin also for Java support.
Ranorex Studio is tied to Windows very tightly. Maybe we get more freedom at some point with .NET Core, but this is – at best – a long term goal.

Knowing this is a huge and difficult task I just want to mention my interrest in testing QT Applications under Linux.
