How do I update my local installation of Playwright Test to the latest version?


To upgrade your local installation of Playwright Test, follow these simple steps:

  1. Update Playwright: Ensure you have the latest version of Playwright installed by running the following command in your terminal:

    npm install playwright@latest
  2. Upgrade Playwright Test: Update your local Playwright Test installation to the latest version with this command:

    npm update @playwright/test

Remember that upgrading software packages may introduce breaking changes or compatibility issues with other dependencies in your project. After upgrading, thoroughly test your application to ensure everything works as expected.

For example, if you're using Playwright Test in a TypeScript project, you might have a test file like this:

import { test, expect } from '@playwright/test';

test('Check Ray.run homepage', async ({ page }) => {
  await page.goto('https://ray.run/');
  const title = await page.title();
  expect(title).toBe('Ray - Run your code');

After upgrading, make sure to run your tests and verify that they still pass. If you encounter any issues, consult the Playwright Test documentation for guidance on resolving them.

Thank you!
