Microsoft Announces Playwright for Python Web Testing Tool
"Playwright is a Node.js library to automate Chromium, Firefox and WebKit with a single API," its web site says. "Playwright is built to enable cross-browser web automation that is ever-green, capable, reliable and fast."
Building upon that tool, Microsoft announced Playwright for Python, addressing the most popular programming language used by Visual Studio Code developers.
Like the original, it can also be used to author end-to-end tests for all major browsers, and Attam claimed its automation capabilities improve upon existing testing tools.
The project's GitHub site says the team is now converting the Node.js documentation to Python, but the current documentation's API is basically the same so it can be used until that conversion is complete.
