微軟的 Playwright 以及 Puppeteer 的八卦?

Hacker News 首頁上看到「Playwright: Automate Chromium, WebKit and Firefox (github.com/microsoft)」這個專案:

Playwright is a framework for Web Testing and Automation. It allows testing Chromium, Firefox and WebKit with a single API.

用程式操作瀏覽器的工具,可以用來寫自動化或是其他用途,類似的專案有 PuppeteerCypress 以及歷史悠久的 Selenium

不過重點是在 Hacker News 上的八卦討論,像是這個留言在講 Puppeteer 整個團隊跳去微軟弄出了 Playwright:

Interesting tidbit:

One of the main contributors of this project[0], was the core contributor (creator?) of Puppeteer[1], but then I guess left Google to join Microsoft and work on this[2][3].

然後 Google 內接手 Puppeteer 的人跳出來解釋目前新團隊的情況:

I manage the team at Google that currently owns the Puppeteer project.

The previous team that developed Puppeteer indeed moved to Microsoft and have since started Playwright.

While it is true that staffing is tight (isn't it always), the number of open issues does not tell the full story. The team has been busy with addressing technical debt that we inherited (testing, architecture, migrating to Typescript, etc) as well as investing in a standardized foundation to allow Puppeteer to work cross-browser in the future. This differs from the Playwright team's approach of shipping patched browser binaries.

當吃瓜群眾蹲在旁邊繼續看回應...
