What are the possible reasons for not generating an HTML report after test execution in @playwright/test and how can I fix them?


Troubleshooting HTML Report Generation in @playwright/test

If your HTML report isn't being generated after running tests, there could be a few reasons why. Let's walk through some possible causes and solutions.

Check Your Configuration

First, ensure your reporter is correctly set in your playwright.config.ts file. You should specify the correct output folder for the report. Here's an example:

import { defineConfig } from '@playwright/test';

export default defineConfig({
  reporter: [['html', { outputFolder: 'my-report' }]],

Verify Dependencies

Next, make sure you have all necessary dependencies installed. You can find a list of required packages in the Playwright documentation or your package.json file.

Address Test Failures

Test failures or errors can prevent the generation of the HTML report. If there are any issues with your tests, fix them and rerun the tests.

Check File Permissions

You also need sufficient permissions to write files in the specified output folder. Ensure you have write access to this directory.

Ensure Stable Internet Connection

Finally, network connectivity issues can affect the generation of the HTML report. Make sure your internet connection is stable.

If you've checked all these areas and you're still having issues, please provide more specific details about the problem, including any error messages or logs. This will help us assist you further.
