Generate a fixture dependency tree

In order to identify some tests (amongst many) that don't depend on a specific fixture (like the ones that don't require page), I'd need to have a list of fixtures the test case depends on. For pytest, a plugin exists that does that: https://github.com/pytest-dev/pytest-fixture-tools#fixture-graph Would there be something similar for Playwright already? If not, what'd be the easiest way forward? I've inspected the API docs for TestInfo, but I see no solution so far.


This thread is trying to answer question "Is there a tool similar to the pytest plugin for Playwright that can generate a list of fixtures a test case depends on? If not, what is the easiest way to achieve this?"

I'm not sure if that's what you need, but pytest have some arguments that could help.

pytest --collect-only --fixtures-per-test This would print tests and all related fixtures for that test (collect only makes it as dry-run not actually running any test)

But reading it again when you say "for playwright" you mean for nodejs?

I think the easiest way would be to add console logs to each fixture and running the test.
