To ensure that your code is bug-free and to enhance the quality of the output

What is Playwright?

Playwright is an open source end-to-end testing tool with primary support for web applications and additional experimental support for mobile applications.

Rather than testing the interface for your applications manually, Playwright provides you with the ability to automate your tests using executable scripts written in either JavaScript or TypeScript, Java, .NET, and Python.

Playwright Test was created specifically to accommodate the needs of end-to-end testing. Playwright supports all modern rendering engines including Chromium, WebKit, and Firefox.

Installing Playwright

Get started by installing Playwright using npm or yarn. Alternatively you can also get started and run your tests using the VS Code Extension.

                                                            npm init playwright@latest
                                                        npm i @axe-core/playwright

Running the Example Test

By default tests will be run on all 3 browsers, chromium, firefox and webkit using 3 workers. This can be configured in the playwright.config file. Tests are run in headless mode meaning no browser will open up when running the tests. Results of the tests and test logs will be shown in the terminal.

                                                            npx playwright test

HTML Test Reports

Once your test has finished running a HTML Reporter will have been created which shows you a full report of your tests allowing you to filter the report by browsers, passed tests, failed tests, skipped tests and flaky tests. You can click on each test and explore the test's errors as well as each step of the test. By default, the HTML report is opened automatically if some of the tests failed.

                                                            npx playwright show-report
