First, ensure Playwright is installed in your Docker container. You can include the installation commands in your Dockerfile or run them manually inside the container.
Next, run your tests inside the Docker container. Use the command
npx playwright test followed by the path to your test files. Don't forget to include any necessary flags or options for running tests in headless mode or with specific browsers.
npx playwright test /path/to/your/test/files
After running the tests, Playwright generates an HTML report with detailed test results. To access this report, extract it from the Docker container and open it in a web browser.
To extract the HTML report from the Docker container, you can:
docker cp containerId:/path/to/report.html /host/path/to/report.html
Once you have the HTML report file on your host machine, serve it using a local web server. You can do this within a folder where Playwright is installed.
Change into the directory where you extracted the HTML report file and use
npx playwright show-report followed by the name (or path) of the report.
cd /path/to/report npx playwright show-report report.html
This starts a local web server that serves up the report. Now you can view your test results in detail!
If you still have questions, please ask a question and I will try to answer it.
