Nightwatch to Playwright Converter

A Nightwatch to Playwright tool converts Nightwatch code into Playwright code, allowing for easy migration from Nightwatch to Playwright.

Use Ctrl + k + "Tools" to quickly access all tools.

If you're in the transition phase from Nightwatch.js to Playwright, this tool is tailor-made for you. Seamlessly convert your existing Nightwatch.js code to its closest @playwright/test equivalent without the hassle.


  • Converts Nightwatch.js scripts into @playwright/test code.

How It Works

The converter utilizes Long-lasting Memory models (LLMs) and hand-crafted test examples from both frameworks:

  1. LLMs Analyze: Models identify structure and intent of Nightwatch.js code.
  2. Mapping: Matches code with hand-crafted examples in our database.
  3. Code Generation: Produces @playwright/test code mirroring the original Nightwatch.js intent.

How to Use

  1. Input Your Nightwatch.js Code: Paste your Nightwatch.js code into the left text area.
  2. Press Convert: Click on the 'Convert' button and let the tool work its magic.
  3. Examine & Copy: After the conversion, you'll see the resulting @playwright/test code. Ensure you review this output, tweak as necessary, and then incorporate it into your Playwright project.

Tips & Considerations

  • Not a One-to-One Match: While our tool aims to offer a direct conversion, it's worth noting that not all Nightwatch.js commands have a direct counterpart in @playwright/test. In such scenarios, you may need to carry out manual tweaks post-conversion.
  • Always Test Post-Conversion: For best practices, after converting your scripts, test them in the intended environment to ensure they run as expected. This step can help highlight any overlooked issues.
  • Share Feedback: Our tool thrives on user feedback. If you encounter any hitches or have enhancement ideas, please get in touch. We're all ears!

Experimental Tool

Unlike other tools you will find on this website, this tool sends data to the server. This is because the conversion is done using AI that is not available in the browser.

If you discover an issue, please take a minute to share feedback.
