Playwright Line Reporter

Profile picture for user arilio666

Playwright Test includes a few built-in reporters for various needs and the option to submit custom reporters. The --reporter command line option is the simplest way to try out built-in reporters.

The line reporter is shorter than the list reporter. It reports the last completed test on a single line and prints failures as they occur. Line reporter is handy for large test suites since it displays progress without cluttering the output by listing all the tests.

npx playwright test tests/csv.spec.js --headed --project='chromium' --reporter=line

Change the reporter type in the config file to set the default generated report to line reporter.
