How do I write a simple test using Playwright in Node.js?


Sure! Let's get you started with Playwright. First, you need to install the Playwright library. Open your terminal and run this command:

npm install playwright

Now, let's write a simple test. We'll launch a Chromium browser and navigate to a website. Here's how you do it:

import { chromium } from 'playwright';

(async () => {
  const browser = await chromium.launch();
  const page = await browser.newPage();
  await page.goto('https://ray.run');
  // Do some actions on the page...
  await browser.close();

In this code, we're launching a new Chromium instance, creating a new page, and navigating to the Ray.run website.

You're not limited to Chromium. Playwright supports Firefox and WebKit too. Just import the respective modules.

Playwright also has handy methods for interacting with page elements, like page.click() or page.fill(). Check out Playwright's documentation for more.

Playwright is a powerful tool for automating web browsers and testing your web applications. It's high-level API and multi-browser support make writing end-to-end tests a breeze. Happy testing!
