    This is a utility which both makes it easier to use XPaths with jest and puppeteer, and generates XPaths to locate Vuetify components.


    jest-puppeteer-vuetify is written in Typescript, and so must be built:

    yarn run build


    A Vuetify application, jest-puppeteer-vuetify-test, is included which serves various Vuetify components for testing purposes. It must be running before tests can be run:

    cd jest-puppeteer-vuetify-test
    yarn serve

    Once jest-puppeteer-vuetify-test is running, tests can be run:

    # Headless mode
    yarn run test
    # Browser popup, extended jest test timeout
    yarn run test-debug


    Puppeteer and expect-puppeteer prefer using CSS selectors whenever possible. They do have some support for XPath locators, but they cannot be used for everything that CSS selectors can be used for. Sadly, many elements generated by Vuetify cannot practically be identified with CSS selectors, so sometimes XPaths are required. To help remedy this, the jest-xpaths module registers several new methods on the Jest expect object. For instance:

    await expect(page).toFillXPath('//input[@id="username"]', 'DandiDan');
    await expect(page).toClickXPath('//input[@id="submit"]');

    This module is still a work in progress. If you think it should be capable of something that it doesn't do yet, feel free to augment it.


    Despite XPaths sometimes being the only option for locating Vuetify elements, they can still be painful to write and maintain. To help with this, we have the vuetify-xpaths helper which generates XPaths (element locators) for common Vuetify elements. For example, to fill a text field labelled Username and click a button labelled Submit, you can do this:

    await expect(page).toFillXPath(vTextField('Username'), 'DandiDan');
    await expect(page).toClickXPath(vBtn('Submit'));


    The canonical argument to any vElement is a destructured object. The arguments are unique to each element, but generally will have a content argument and a cssClass argument. If the argument is not an object, it is assumed to be content.

    • If content is falsy or absent, like vFoo() or vFoo({content: null}), the XPath will match any v-foo.
    • If content is a string, like vFoo('Hello') or vFoo({content: 'World'}), the XPath will match any v-foo which contains the string.
    • If content is a valid XPath, like vFoo(vBar()), the XPath will match any v-foo which contains a v-bar. Note that vBar is not necessarily an immediate child of vFoo; vFoo(vBar()) will also match <v-foo><div><v-bar /></div></v-foo>.
    • If content is an array, every element in the array is treated as a separate content. vFoo(['Hello', vBar()]) will match any v-foo which contains both a v-bar element and the text Hello.

    The same assumptions are generally made for different arguments. Here are some examples selectors and DOM elements they will locate:

    vFoo({ contents: vBar('Hello World!'), cssClass: ['world', 'hello'] })
    <v-foo class='hello world'>
        Hello World!

    The second argument will generally be an object whose options will vary based on the element. Most elements have a cssClass option which will only match elements with the given class.

    • If cssClass is falsy, nothing will be done.
    • If cssClass is a string, like vFoo(null, 'text-center'), it will match all v-foo which have the class text-center. This is roughly equivalent to the CSS selector .v-foo.text-center.
    • If cssClass is an array, like vFoo(null, ['text-center', 'text--blue']), it will match all v-foo which have both classes text-center and text--blue. This is roughly equivalent to the CSS selector .v-foo.text-center.text--blue.

    Other secondary options will generally behave like contents or like cssClass, depending on whether they identify DOM properties or CSS classes.

    Because generated XPaths are strings, generally speaking they can be composed with string concatenation. vFoo() + vBar() will match any v-bar which is contained in a v-foo.

    This module is still a work in progress. It relies on the internal behavior of Vuetify and is liable to break with any Vuetify update. If existing methods don't work in your use case or there is a missing method, feel free to fix it.
