🎭 Playwright client for Ruby

Docs | API

Getting Started

gem 'playwright-ruby-client'

and then 'bundle install'.

Since playwright-ruby-client doesn't include the playwright driver, we have to install playwright in advance.

npm install playwright
./node_modules/.bin/playwright install

And set playwright_cli_executable_path: './node_modules/.bin/playwright'

Prefer playwrighting without Node.js?

Instead of npm, you can also directly download playwright driver from playwright.azureedge.net/builds/. The URL can be easily detected from here

Capture a site

require 'playwright'

Playwright.create(playwright_cli_executable_path: './node_modules/.bin/playwright') do |playwright|
  playwright.chromium.launch(headless: false) do |browser|
    page = browser.new_page
    page.goto('https://github.com/YusukeIwaki')
    page.screenshot(path: './YusukeIwaki.png')
  end
end

Simple scraping

require 'playwright'

Playwright.create(playwright_cli_executable_path: './node_modules/.bin/playwright') do |playwright|
  playwright.chromium.launch(headless: false) do |browser|
    page = browser.new_page
    page.goto('https://github.com/')

    form = page.query_selector("form.js-site-search-form")
    search_input = form.query_selector("input.header-search-input")
    search_input.click
    page.keyboard.type("playwright")
    page.expect_navigation {
      page.keyboard.press("Enter")
    }

    list = page.query_selector("ul.repo-list")
    items = list.query_selector_all("div.f4")
    items.each do |item|
      title = item.eval_on_selector("a", "a => a.innerText")
      puts("==> #{title}")
    end
  end
end

Android browser automation

require 'playwright'

Playwright.create(playwright_cli_executable_path: './node_modules/.bin/playwright') do |playwright|
  devices = playwright.android.devices
  unless devices.empty?
    device = devices.last
    begin
      puts "Model: #{device.model}"
      puts "Serial: #{device.serial}"
      puts device.shell('ls /system')

      device.launch_browser do |context|
        page = context.pages.first
        page.goto('https://github.com/YusukeIwaki')
        page.click('header button')
        page.click('input[name="q"]')
        page.keyboard.type('puppeteer')
        page.expect_navigation {
          page.keyboard.press('Enter')
        }
        page.screenshot(path: 'YusukeIwaki.android.png')
      end
    ensure
      device.close
    end
  end
end

android-browser

Android native automation

We have to download android-driver for Playwright in advance.

wget https://github.com/microsoft/playwright/raw/master/bin/android-driver-target.apk -O /path/to/playwright-driver/package/bin/android-driver-target.apk
wget https://github.com/microsoft/playwright/raw/master/bin/android-driver.apk -O /path/to/playwright-driver/package/bin/android-driver.apk

(If you downloaded Playwright via npm, replace /path/to/playwright-driver/package/ with ./node_modules/playwright/ above.)

require 'playwright'

Playwright.create(playwright_cli_executable_path: ENV['PLAYWRIGHT_CLI_EXECUTABLE_PATH']) do |playwright|
  devices = playwright.android.devices
  unless devices.empty?
    device = devices.last
    begin
      device.shell('input keyevent POWER')
      device.shell('input keyevent POWER')
      device.shell('input keyevent 82')
      sleep 1
      device.shell('cmd statusbar expand-notifications')

      # pp device.tree
      # pp device.info(res: 'com.android.systemui:id/clock')
      device.tap_on(res: 'com.android.systemui:id/clock')
    ensure
      device.close
    end
  end
end

Communicate with Playwright server

If your environment doesn't accept installing browser or creating browser process, consider separating Ruby client and Playwright server.

structure

For launching Playwright server, just execute:

npx playwright install && npx playwright run-server 8080

and we can connect to the server with the code like this:

Playwright.connect_to_playwright_server('ws://127.0.0.1:8080') do |playwright|
  playwright.chromium.launch do |browser|
    page = browser.new_page
    page.goto('https://github.com/YusukeIwaki')
    page.screenshot(path: './YusukeIwaki.png')
  end
end

When Playwright.connect_to_playwright_server is used, playwright_cli_executable_path is not required.
