Good day everyone, I am new member here.. I am beginner to kotlin and i want to use kotlin for my mobile automation activities. I am planning to use Appium + kotest but I don't have any idea yet on how to do it. Can someone give me atleast a high level architecture and structure of it for my better understanding. Your responses with my concern is really appreciated and I owe it to you guys. Thank you.

Any specific reason you want to use Appium that is 3rd party tool instead of native options on Android? Espresso?

to inspect elements while navigating the entire app and kotest will do the assertion to check the return behavior while navigating..
@Peter Miklosko on my case since that I am starting to design my automation architecture - what can you suggest?

Unless you have very great urge or reason to use Appium, like have "unified" automation for Android and iOS project which is still difficult I would use native tools. Espresso will help you nicely, it has also recorder option to capture your click if you want to get faster coverage in case of legacy application with no coverage Good starting place as always Android documentation https://developer.android.com/training/testing
