Playwright Testing in the Cloud

This is a summary of a Playwright Testing tutorial that explains how to run Playwright tests on cloud-based browsers.

Installing Playwright

To install Playwright, all you need to do is run this command:
npm i --save playwright

Running a Playwright Test in the Cloud

Once you have Playwright installed, you can run your first test on a remote browser.

Simply use the following code to run a simply Playwright script on a remote browser on TestingBot:

const pw = require('playwright-core');

(async () => {
 const browser = await pw.chromium.connect({
   wsEndpoint: 'wss://',
 const context = await browser.newContext();
 const page = await context.newPage();

 await page.goto('');
 await page.screenshot({ path: 'screenshot.png' });

 await browser.close();

This will start a new Chrome browser, instruct it to open a URL, take a screenshot of the page and finally close the browser.

Of course this is a very simple example. There are many other options you can use, including Visual Regression Testing with Playwright.
