We are excited to introduce the new Nightwatch Chrome Recorder extension that helps you generate Nightwatch test scripts without writing a single line of code.

Test without writing a single line of code

Nightwatch Chrome Recorder helps you to export Chrome DevTools recording as Nightwatch test scripts. This will speed up your development cycle by creating integrated or end-to-end tests instantly. In fact, a recent survey by Gitlab revealed that 49% of organizations had already started using Low Code/No code tools.

This is based on the Chrome DevTools Recorder, a tool that allows you to record and replay test actions directly in the browser. We decided to use it since it’s plugged into the browser, giving the convenience of not switching context or dealing with other third-party tools.

How to use

Here is how you can generate your Nightwatch script in 4 simple steps:

  1. Install the extension
  2. Navigate to the Recorder section in Chrome DevTools
  3. Start recording and perform all the actions in your test like a typical user would
  4. Stop the recording. You can now click on export and select ‘Export as Nightwatch Test Script’ to get your tests.
