    Documentation | API reference

    Playwright is a framework for Web Testing and Automation. It allows testing Chromium, Firefox and WebKit with a single API. Playwright is built to enable cross-browser web automation that is ever-green, capable, reliable and fast.

    Installation

    Playwright has its own test runner for end-to-end tests, we call it Playwright Test.

    Using init command

    The easiest way to get started with Playwright Test is to run the init command.

    # Run from your project's root directory
    npm init playwright@latest
    # Or create a new project
    npm init playwright@latest new-project

    This will create a configuration file, optionally add examples, a GitHub Action workflow and a first test example.spec.ts. You can now jump directly to writing assertions section.

    Manually

    Add dependency and install browsers.

    npm i -D @playwright/test
    # install supported browsers
    npx playwright install

    You can optionally install only selected browsers, see install browsers for more details. Or you can install no browsers at all and use existing browser channels.

    Capabilities

    Resilient • No flaky tests

    Auto-wait. Playwright waits for elements to be actionable prior to performing actions. It also has rich set of introspection events. The combination of the two eliminate the need for artificial timeouts - primary cause of flaky tests.

    Web-first assertions. Playwright assertions are created specifically for the dynamic web. Checks are automatically retried until the necessary conditions are met.

    Tracing. Configure test retry strategy, capture execution trace, videos, screenshots to eliminate flakes.

    No trade-offs • No limits

    Browsers run web content belonging to different origins in different processes. Playwright is aligned with the modern browsers architecture and runs tests out-of-process. This makes Playwright free of the typical in-process test runner limitations.

    Multiple everything. Test scenarios that span multiple tabs, multiple origins and multiple users. Create scenarios with different contexts for different users and run them against your server, all in one test.

    Trusted events. Hover elements, interact with dynamic controls, produce trusted events. Playwright uses real browser input pipeline indistinguishable from the real user.

    Test frames, pierce Shadow DOM. Playwright selectors pierce shadow DOM and allow entering frames seamlessly.

    Full isolation • Fast execution

    Browser contexts. Playwright creates a browser context for each test. Browser context is equivalent to a brand new browser profile. This delivers full test isolation with zero overhead. Creating a new browser context only takes a handful of milliseconds.

    Log in once. Save the authentication state of the context and reuse it in all the tests. This bypasses repetitive log-in operations in each test, yet delivers full isolation of independent tests.

    Powerful Tooling

    Codegen. Generate tests by recording your actions. Save them into any language.

    Playwright inspector. Inspect page, generate selectors, step through the test execution, see click points, explore execution logs.

    Trace Viewer. Capture all the information to investigate the test failure. Playwright trace contains test execution screencast, live DOM snapshots, action explorer, test source and many more.

    Examples

    To learn how to run these Playwright Test examples, check out our getting started docs.

    Page screenshot

    This code snippet navigates to whatsmyuseragent.org and saves a screenshot.

    import { test } from '@playwright/test';
    
    test('Page Screenshot', async ({ page }) => {
        await page.goto('http://whatsmyuseragent.org/');
        await page.screenshot({ path: `example.png` });
    });

    Mobile and geolocation

    This snippet emulates Mobile Safari on a device at a given geolocation, navigates to maps.google.com, performs action and takes a screenshot.

    import { test, devices } from '@playwright/test';
    
    test.use({
      ...devices['iPhone 13 Pro'],
      locale: 'en-US',
      geolocation: { longitude: 12.492507, latitude: 41.889938 },
      permissions: ['geolocation'],
    })
    
    test('Mobile and geolocation', async ({ page }) => {
      await page.goto('https://maps.google.com');
      await page.locator('text="Your location"').click();
      await page.waitForRequest(/.*preview\/pwa/);
      await page.screenshot({ path: 'colosseum-iphone.png' });
    });

    Evaluate in browser context

    This code snippet navigates to example.com, and executes a script in the page context.

    import { test } from '@playwright/test';
    
    test('Evaluate in browser context', async ({ page }) => {
      await page.goto('https://www.example.com/');
      const dimensions = await page.evaluate(() => {
        return {
          width: document.documentElement.clientWidth,
          height: document.documentElement.clientHeight,
          deviceScaleFactor: window.devicePixelRatio
        }
      });
      console.log(dimensions);
    });

    Intercept network requests

    This code snippet sets up request routing for a page to log all network requests.

    import { test } from '@playwright/test';
    
    test('Intercept network requests', async ({ page }) => {
      // Log and continue all network requests
      await page.route('**', route => {
        console.log(route.request().url());
        route.continue();
      });
      await page.goto('http://todomvc.com');
    });
