Basic Test Case

In this tutorial we will walk through converting an existing Playwright script to use AI with Dev Tools.

Install Dependencies

If you haven't done so already, please install the devtools package

npm install @devtools-ai/playwright-sdk

Add your API key

Devtools AI supports configuration in a .env file (dotenv). At the root of your project create a .env file. The same effect can be obtained by setting environment variables in your terminal.


Plugin setup & sample test

You will need to add a few lines to your test file to enable the plugin.

const base = require('@playwright/test');
const devtools = require('@devtools-ai/playwright-sdk');

// Extend basic test by registering the plugin
const test = base.test.extend({
page: async ({ page }, use, testInfo) => {
await devtools.register_devtools(page, testInfo.title);
await use(page);

test('Click on navbar link', async ({ page }) => {
await page.goto('');
var element = await page.$("//a[@class='navbar__item navbar__link'][3]")
await new Promise((r) => setTimeout(r, 10000));

This test case will automatically backup the elements that are being interacted with and send them to Devtools AI. If the selector breaks, the test case will use visual AI and still work.

You can then go to to see the results.
