Simplify UI test automation with Puppeteer

Submitted by Pranav Raj.S (@pranavrajs) on Monday, 6 August 2018

Section: Crisp talk Technical level: Intermediate


Frontend ecosystem is highly adaptive. It is becoming painful to write UI tests. We may use Jest, Enzyme, and mocha for various use cases. Still, it’s not enough.

Here I would like to propose a system, an architecture, which you can use to set up to automate your tests. This talk would describe the ways by which you can record the tests and run those tests using Puppeteer. I would cover the basics of Puppeteer and it’s various use-cases.


  • Why is UI testing important?
  • What is Puppeteer and how can it be used for UI testing?
  • Introduction on how to write tests with puppeteer
  • A guideline to write and manage tests with puppeteer
  • How we did it? A brief description of the framework we build for our internal use
