In this tutorial we will see 2 methods of generating reliable web automated tests using Playwright
In this video, we learn how to use the Playwright Code Generation feature, a powerful tool for generating code snippets for browser automation. Playwright is an open-source cross-browser testing library developed by Microsoft, which allows us to write automated tests in multiple programming languages.
There are two approaches to using this feature: using the Playwright Test extension in Visual Studio Code (VS Code) or using the Command Line Interface (CLI).
install playwright, then choosing the browsers you want to use in test execution.
You also have the ability to record tests from a specific point in an existing test, by moving your cursor to where you want to record more actions and clicking on the "record at cursor" button.

The code generation command also comes with additional features for emulating different viewports, devices, color schemes and geolocations, language and time zones, as well as loading authenticated states and recording using custom setups.
By utilizing code generation in Playwright, we can efficiently create automated end-to-end tests for our projects.
