How do I change the baseURL in Playwright for a specific test?


Sure, you can override the baseURL in @playwright/test. This comes in handy when you're using methods like page.goto(), page.route(), page.waitForURL(), page.waitForRequest(), or page.waitForResponse().

Here's how you can do it:

// Assuming your base URL is https://ray.run
page.goto('/blog'); // This will navigate to https://ray.run/blog

This way, you can navigate to any location without changing your entire configuration file.

Remember, this only affects the specific test you're running. It doesn't change the global configuration for other tests.

If you're running multiple web servers with different configurations, each server will have its own baseURL value.

So, yes, you can have greater flexibility and control over navigating pages during testing by overriding the baseURL value in Playwright.


Thank you!
