Playwright - v1.34.0


  • UI Mode now shows steps, fixtures and attachments:
  • New property testProject.teardown to specify a project that needs to run after this
    and all dependent projects have finished. Teardown is useful to cleanup any resources acquired by this project.

A common pattern would be a setup dependency with a corresponding teardown:
// playwright.config.ts
import { defineConfig } from '@playwright/test';

export default defineConfig({
projects: [
name: 'setup',
testMatch: /global.setup.ts/,
teardown: 'teardown',
name: 'teardown',
testMatch: /global.teardown.ts/,
name: 'chromium',
use: devices['Desktop Chrome'],
dependencies: ['setup'],
name: 'firefox',
use: devices['Desktop Firefox'],
dependencies: ['setup'],
name: 'webkit',
use: devices['Desktop Safari'],
dependencies: ['setup'],
* New method [`expect.configure`]( to create pre-configured expect instance with its own defaults such as `timeout` and `soft`.js
const slowExpect = expect.configure({ timeout: 10000 });
await slowExpect(locator).toHaveText('Submit');

// Always do soft assertions.
const softExpect = expect.configure({ soft: true });
`` * New optionsstderrandstdoutin [testConfig.webServer`]( to configure output handling:

// playwright.config.ts
import { defineConfig } from '@playwright/test';

export default defineConfig({
// Run your local dev server before starting the tests
webServer: {
command: 'npm run start',
url: '',
reuseExistingServer: !process.env.CI,
stdout: 'pipe',
stderr: 'pipe',
`` * New [locator.and()`]( to create a locator that matches both locators.

const button = page.getByRole('button').and(page.getByTitle('Subscribe'));

⚠️ Breaking changes

  • npx playwright test no longer works if you install both playwright and @playwright/test. There's no need
    to install both, since you can always import browser automation APIs from @playwright/test directly:

js // automation.ts import { chromium, firefox, webkit } from '@playwright/test'; /* ... */ * Node.js 14 is no longer supported since it reached its end-of-life on April 30, 2023.
