To schedule tests with Playwright using external tools, follow these steps:
Create a script that runs your Playwright tests. Save it as a shell script (.sh) on Linux or a batch file (.bat) on Windows. For example, create a
run-tests.sh file with the following content:
#!/bin/bash npx playwright test --project ray.run
On Linux, use
cron to schedule your tests. Open the crontab editor with:
Add a new line with the desired schedule and the path to your script:
0 0 * * * /path/to/run-tests.sh
This example runs the tests daily at midnight.
On Windows, use Task Scheduler:
You can also use continuous integration (CI) tools like Jenkins or Travis CI to automate your testing process. Configure these tools to run your Playwright tests and send notifications if any tests fail.
Playwright provides an HTML test reporter that shows a full report of your tests. Filter the report by browsers, passed tests, failed tests, skipped tests, and flaky tests. Click on each test to explore the test errors and each step of the test.
By using external tools like cron jobs or CI/CD pipelines, you can easily schedule and automate your @playwright/test testing processes.
If you still have questions, please ask a question and I will try to answer it.
Rayrun is a community for QA engineers. I am constantly looking for new ways to add value to people learning Playwright and other browser automation frameworks. If you have feedback, email email@example.com.
