Steps to create a Playwright project:
The video is a tutorial on how to install and execute playwright tests. It starts with an introduction for those who are new to playwright and are facing issues with installation. The video recommends using Git Bash as the command prompt instead of the Windows Command Prompt or PowerShell, as it does not support Linux-based commands.
The video then guides viewers through the installation process. They are instructed to create a new folder and open it in VS Code. Then, they need to install the Microsoft Playwright extension from the VS Code marketplace. After installing the extension, viewers are shown how to open the command palette and select the "Install Playwright" option. This command prompts the installation of Playwright and its dependencies, including the webkit, firefox, and chromium browsers.
Once the installation is complete, viewers are guided on how to execute a test. They are shown a sample test file and how to run it using the Playwright Test Runner. The video also explains how to change the default headless mode to display the browser UI during the test execution.
The video concludes by suggesting viewers explore the rest of the Playwright playlist for more in-depth tutorials. Viewers are encouraged to leave comments if they encounter any issues, and they are reminded to change the command prompt to Git Bash if necessary.
Overall, the video provides a step-by-step guide on installing and executing playwright tests, making it easy for beginners to get started.
