✨ New tool to merge reports

If you run tests on multiple shards, you can now merge all reports in a single HTML report (or any other report)
using the new merge-reports CLI tool.

Using merge-reports tool requires the following steps:

  1. Adding a new "blob" reporter to the config when running on CI:

    export default defineConfig({
      testDir: './tests',
      reporter: process.env.CI ? 'blob' : 'html',

    The "blob" reporter will produce ".zip" files that contain all the information
    about the test run.

  2. Copying all "blob" reports in a single shared location and running npx playwright merge-reports:

    npx playwright merge-reports --reporter html ./all-blob-reports
