Getting Started - Playwright Library Remote Test


You can use the Testable platform as a remote Playwright grid. Each Playwright session will run on a Testable test runner according to the options you provide in the URL. This includes support for all Cloud providers, in your account or ours, as well as self-hosted test runners. Each session will produce a test report that includes all assertions, commands, screenshots, video, browser performance metrics, and network metrics. The test reports can be shared and customized to your requirements.

There are 3 ways to run your Playwright tests remotely pointed at Testable:

  1. Playwright Library [THIS GUIDE]: Playwright Library provides a set of APIs for launching and interacting with browsers.
  2. Playwright Test + Testable Fixture: Playwright Test framework is a framework for end-to-end testing. Use the testable-playwright-test fixture to point your test at Testable Cloud. Each browser session will launch on a Testable test runner and a tunnel will be setup from your Playwright test session to the test runner.
  3. PLaywright Test + Remote Selenium Grid: Point your Playwright Test run at Testable as a remote Selenium grid.

In addition to this you can upload and run your test on Testable fully hosted in a test runner. See this guide for more details on the fully hosted options.

Your Script

Testable Cloud’s Playwright grid is accessible at:


Here is an example Playwright script to use the Testable Cloud Playwright grid:

const { chromium } = require('playwright');
const { URLSearchParams } = require('url');

(async () => {
    try {
        const params = new URLSearchParams({
            // API key (Org Management => API Keys)
            key: process.env.TESTABLE_KEY,
            // Browser name: chrome, edge, firefox, chromium, webkit
            browserName: 'chrome',
            // Browser version (e.g. latest, latest-1, 90)
            browserVersion: 'latest',
            // The region in which to run your test (use our remote configurator to see the full list of options)
            region: 'aws-us-east-1'
        const browser = await chromium.connect(
            { timeout: 0 });
        const page = await browser.newPage();
        await page.setViewportSize({ width: 1920, height: 1080 });
        await page.goto('');
        await page.waitForTimeout(1000);

        await page.screenshot({ path: 'test.png' });
        await browser.close();
    } catch (err) {

This very simple example loads in the latest version of Chrome, waits 1 second, and then takes a screenshot.
