⭐️ Puppeteer Recorder is now Headless Recorder and supports Playwright! ⭐️

Headless Recorder Screenshot

πŸ“ Overview

Headless recorder is a Chrome extension that records your browser interactions and generates a Puppeteer or Playwright script. Install it from the Chrome Webstore to get started!

Don't forget to check out our sister project, the open source knowledge base for Puppeteer and Playwright.

This project builds on existing open source projects (see Credits) but adds extensibility, configurability and a smoother UI. For more information, please see our documentation.

πŸ—οΈ What you can do?

  • Records clicks and type events.
  • Add waitForNavigation, setViewPort and other useful clauses.
  • Generates a Puppeteer / Playwright script.
  • Shows which events are being recorded.
  • Copy to clipboard.
  • Offers configuration options.
  • Allows data-id configuration for element selection.

Note: we only record certain events. See dom-events-to-record.js in the code-generator folder for which events. This collection will be expanded in future releases.

πŸ”§ How to use?

  • Click the icon and hit Record.
  • Hit tab after you finish typing in an input element.
  • Click on links, inputs and other elements.
  • Wait for full page load on each navigation. The icon will switch from to to indicate it is ready for more input from you.
  • Click Pause when you want to navigate without recording anything. Hit Resume to continue recording.
