In UI testing, choosing the right tool can greatly impact your testing process's stability, reliability, and maintenance. In this article, we'll compare two popular options: **Robot Framework** and **Playwright**. We'll focus on factors such as test stability, reducing flakiness, ease of maintenance, skill set required, features, and future-proofing options. Additionally, we'll delve into their pros and cons, limitations with Robot Framework, and why it may not be the ideal choice for a modern engineering process.
In this tutorial, we will explore how to automate testing of a Wikipedia page using the Playwright test automation framework. We'll also implement a Page Object Model (POM) for better test structure, set up Allure reporting for detailed test reporting, and integrate the Axe library for accessibility testing.
