To install Playwright, start by using npm or yarn. You can also use the VS Code Extension. Begin with npm by running:
npm init playwright@latest
After installation, Playwright downloads the required browsers and creates several files, including:
playwright.config.ts file is where you can configure Playwright, such as modifying the browsers you want to run on.
If you're running tests in an existing project, dependencies will be added to your package.json. The
tests folder contains a basic example test, while the
tests-examples folder has more detailed examples for testing a todo app.
Remember to update Playwright regularly to access new features and browser versions. Use this command to update:
npm install -D @playwright/test@latest
If you still have questions, please ask a question and I will try to answer it.
