GuardianTest is an open-source, end-to-end testing framework for web3 developers building on EVM-compatible chains.


Installation

Dependencies

Installing Node.js

  • Check if you already have Node installed by opening a terminal or command prompt instance and executing node -v. You should see a version number in the return.
  • If you do not have Node already installed, go to Node.js and select the version associated with your operating system.

Installing Foundry

  • Check if you already have Anvil installed through Foundry by opening a terminal or command prompt instance and executing anvil -V. You should see a version number in the return. If you do not, follow one of the guides below.

Mac, Linux, and Windows

Docker

CI

Installing GuardianTest

You can install GuardianTest using either npm or yarn:

npm

npm install --save-dev @guardianui/test

yarn

yarn add -D @guardianui/test

Installing Playwright Browsers

You will need to have the latest Playwright browser drivers installed.

npx playwright install

Configuration

Playwright

At your repo's top-level directory create a file called playwright.config.ts. You can find a default configuration in our GuardianTest Configuration Guide

If you already are using Playwright and already have a playwright.config.ts:

  • Add /.*gui.(js|ts|mjs)/ to the testMatch entry to make sure Playwright recognizes our tests
    • If you do not have a testMatch entry in the config, add one like shown in the example below
    • If you have existing Playwright tests that are either named with the testName.spec.ts or testName.test.ts naming conventions make the following your testMatch entry: [/.*gui\.(js|ts|mjs)/, /.*(spec|test)\.(js|ts|mjs)/]
  • Set fullyParallel to false
  • Set workers to 1

env

Create another file called .env in your repo's top-level directory, or add the following to your existing .env file if you already have one. Comment out whichever line you do not use with a # at the start.

# Must fill in one of these API keys, do not need both
GUARDIAN_UI_INFURA_API_KEY=
GUARDIAN_UI_ALCHEMY_API_KEY=

package.json

To be able to run tests, add the following to your app's package.json scripts section:

"test:gui": "npx playwright test --project=chromium --headed"

What GuardianTest enables

  • Engage with local deployments, staging deployments, OR live production
  • Perform tests on Ethereum, Polygon, Arbitrum, or Optimism (more coming soon)
  • Pin tests to any block
  • Interact with a site using a wallet
  • Mock ERC20 balances and allowances
  • Validate target contract addresses from app interactions
  • Perform any other actions or validation Playwright offers

Why it's good

  • Does not rely on MetaMask or any other specific wallet where the brittleness of the tests is caused by changes from the wallet provider
  • Creates a closer to production testing environment
    • No modified WAGMI connector
    • Looks like mainnet to the site
  • Enables easy mocking of ERC20 balances and allowances
  • Enables mocking of any other contract state
  • Enables developers to verify wallet interactions
  • Enables developers to test app behavior through a transaction completing

How it works

  • Spins up an Anvil fork of the desired network at the time of test run
  • Uses Playwright to run browser interactions and engage with the site
  • Injects a wallet to the browser that's connected to the Anvil fork
  • Checks eth_sendTransaction and eth_sendRawTransaction RPC requests when instructed to via gui.validateContractInteraction
