How do I run specific test describes in a .js test file using Playwright Test?


Running Specific Test Describes with Playwright Test

Hey there! If you're looking to run specific test describes in a .js file with Playwright Test, you're in the right place.

Playwright Test provides a handy function called test.only. This function allows you to focus on a specific test or group of tests. Here's how you can use it:

test.only('login functionality', () => {
  // ... login tests ...

In this example, only the login tests will be executed when you run your test file.

Remember, use test.only sparingly and temporarily. It's great for speeding up development when you're working on a specific feature or bug fix. But don't forget to remove the focus and run all your tests regularly to ensure everything is working as expected.

Playwright Test also offers other configuration options. For instance, you can configure whether your tests should run in parallel or serially using the mode option in test.describe.configure. You can also set retries and timeouts for each individual test.

So, there you have it! With Playwright Test, you have several ways to customize your test suite to suit your needs. Happy testing!


Thank you!
