The xk6-browser APIs aim for rough compatibility with the Playwright API for NodeJS.
Note that because k6 does not run in NodeJS, xk6-browser APIs will slightly differ from their Playwright counterparts.
The table below lists the importable properties from the top level module ('k6/x/browser').
|chromium||A BrowserType to launch tests in a Chromium-based browser.|
|devices||Returns predefined emulation settings for many end-user devices that can be used to simulate browser behavior on a mobile device. See the devices example below.|
|version||Returns the version number of xk6-browser.|
To emulate the browser behaviour on a mobile device and approximately measure the browser performance, you can import devices from k6/x/browser.
|Browser||The entry point for all tests and used to launch BrowserContexts and Pages.|
|BrowserContext||Enables independent browser sessions with separate Pages, cache, and cookies.|
|BrowserType||The BrowserType is the entry point into launching a browser process; chromium is currently the only supported BrowserType.|
|ElementHandle||Represents an in-page DOM element.|
|Frame||Access and interact with the Page.'s Frames.|
|Keyboard||Used to simulate the keyboard interactions with the associated Page.|
|Locator||The Locator API makes it easier to work with dynamically changing elements.|
