Awesome Web Testing with Playwright

3:35pm - 3:45pm on Saturday, October 7

Andrew Knight


Playwright is a fantastic new open source web testing framework from Microsoft. With Playwright, you can automate tests for web UIs and APIs that run on multiple browsers without flaky failures. It’s a nice, modern alternative to Selenium WebDriver, and you can use Playwright in plain-old Python!

In this concise 10-minute quickstart, we’ll learn how to configure a Python project with Playwright and pytest, automate a basic web test, and run it against different browsers. You’ll be able to add more tests to our starter project on your own after the talk!
