🏆 This post was featured in Software Testing Weekly #110 and Coding JAG #76

My first experience with Playwright was terrible. However the testing community seems to be loving it, thus I gave it another shot. I started by doing a free course, but I don’t recommend it, it’s very outdated by now.

I know you loved my Cypress recipes post, so here’s a new one for Playwright with up-to-date code snippets on how to implement common automation scenarios.

Best website to track watched movies & shows

Photo by Julian O’hayon on Unsplash

I already use AniList to track my anime watching and I’m very happy with it. This time I wanted something similar for shows (and movies). These were my requirements:

  • The profile page looks modern and displays entries as grid
  • I can add movies and shows, and filter them separately
  • I can review entire shows, even if unfinished

And thus I started my experiment.

Using no-code to create a website from a table

I have been hearing about “no-code” solutions for a while but never had the chance to use one. The concept is interesting because programming is usually a barrier for the average person. If they are not required to code, many more people would be able to develop digital and automated solutions to their problems.

Goal

Let’s say I want to create a website with a curated list of local clubs and other infrastructures that promote a high quality of life.
