In this tutorial, we learn how to integrate Playwright with Cucumber for test automation. The main steps involved in this integration are:
Setup project structure: In the project root, create a folder structure like
SRC/test/features for keeping all the feature files and a folder named
steps for keeping all the step definitions.
Create feature file: Create a feature file named
login.feature inside the features folder. This file contains our test scenarios written in the Cucumber Gherkin language that describe the expected behavior of our application.
Configure Cucumber: Create a
cucumber.json file in the project root to store the Cucumber configuration options. In this file, specify the path to the feature files and the step definitions.
package.json: Add a script named
test in the package.json file with the command
cucumber-js/test, which will be used to run our test scenarios.
Implement step definitions: Create a TypeScript file named
loginStep.ts inside the steps folder, and implement the step definitions by importing the necessary dependencies from the
@cucumber/cucumber package. Make sure to use async and await syntax while writing the step definitions.
Configure VSCode settings: To resolve any issues with displaying undefined steps in the feature file, update the Cucumber settings in the VSCode user settings file by specifying the correct paths to the feature files and step definition files.
Run the test scenarios: Finally, run the test scenarios using the command
npm test in the terminal. This will execute the test scenarios specified in the
login.feature file using Playwright and Cucumber.
By following these steps, you can successfully integrate Playwright with Cucumber to create robust and maintainable test automation scripts in TypeScript.
