Playwright is a testing framework that you can use to test your web apps — either locally in Docker or remotely on Sauce Labs Cloud — using the
saucectl CLI. This gives you the flexibility to run your tests in the environment that best suits your organization, while still benefiting from the Sauce Labs vast collection of devices, browser, and operating system combinations and test result data analytics.
You can run
saucectl locally via Docker (Installation Requirements) or remotely via the Sauce Labs cloud, so system requirements vary depending on your intention. The following reference serves as a general guide:

How to Get Started
- Quickstart: Use our demo repo to quickly set up and run a sample Playwright project and test to see the results.
- Run your own tests: Customize
saucectlto run your existing tests just by modifying the
config.ymlfile for your project.
saucectlin your pipeline: Playwright on Sauce supports CI integrations with Circle CI, GitLab, Jenkins, and GitHub Actions.
Special Characters in Test Names
We recommend that you avoid the use of special characters when naming your tests. If your test name contains any special characters, your test may not run or its artifacts may not be visible in our platform.
Based on current playwright test runner implementation, there is no way to run Playwright test runner with Cucumber.
