In this video we will see how to install Playwright using VSCode and learn about Playwright Test Extension
In this video tutorial, we learn how to install the Playwright testing library using Visual Studio Code (VS Code). Playwright, an open-source cross-browser testing library developed by Microsoft, allows for reliable end-to-end web testing across multiple programming languages.
To install Playwright with VS Code, follow these steps:
With this extension, you can install Playwright, run single or multiple tests with a single click, select browsers used by the test execution, debug, pick locators, and generate tests automatically.
Next, we need to install Playwright in the project:
VS Code will now install Playwright and generate the entire project files. The Explorer menu will display the folder structure containing the
playwright.config, and test example files. The Testing extension will show the tests folder with test files and scenarios.
You can run tests in headless mode (without displaying the browser instance) or with the browser instance visible by toggling the "show browser" option.
Other features of the Playwright Test extension include:
With Playwright installed, you can now create automated tests for your web applications using VS Code.
