How do I create and organize test suites in Playwright?


Creating Test Suites in Playwright

To build test suites with @playwright/test, you'll use the Suite class and organize your tests in a hierarchical structure. Here's how to get started:

  1. Create a new Suite object: Instantiate a Suite object without any arguments:

    const mySuite = new Suite();
  2. Add tests to the suite: Use the addTest method to add tests to your suite:

    mySuite.addTest('test name', async () => {
      // Your test code here
  3. Add nested suites: Use the addSuite method to add child suites to your parent suite:

    mySuite.addSuite('suite name', () => {
      // Add nested suites and tests here
  4. Run tests with reporting: To run your tests and generate reports, use one of the built-in reporters or create a custom reporter by implementing a class with some of the reporter methods provided by @playwright/test.

  5. Configure your testing environment: Depending on the testing framework you're using, you may need to create or modify configuration files like playwright.config.ts or jest.config.js.

By following these steps, you can create and organize test suites in Playwright using the Suite class, add tests and nested suites, and run them with reporting enabled.
