            What are the differences between Python Playwright sync vs. async APIs?
            Asked 2020-Dec-26 at 21:43

            I've started learning playwright-python and the package playwright has the two submodules async_api and sync_api. However I could not find any deeper description or discussion on their respective benefits and drawbacks. From their names I assume that the synchronous API calls are blocking and the asynchronous ones run in the background?

            Are they different in their capabilities, i.e. are there scenarios in which the sync_api cannot accomplish something you can do using the async_api (or vice versa)?



            Answered 2020-Dec-26 at 21:43

            The sync_api is simply a wrapper around the asyncio_api that abstracts asyncio usage away from you. As such, the capabilities are largely the same, but the async_api may afford some more flexibility in complex scenarios (for example, in previous playwright-python releases the only way to run instances in a multi-threaded fashion on Unix + Python 3.7 was to use the async_api for reasons I won't get into here).

            Chances are you won't need that flexibility though, so I'd just suggest using whatever you're comfortable with.



            Using Playwright for Python, how do I select (or find) an element?
            Asked 2020-Oct-11 at 11:53

            I'm trying to learn the Python version of Playwright. See here

            I would like to learn how to locate an element, so that I can do things with it. Like printing the inner HTML, clicking on it and such.

            The example below loads a page and prints the HTML



            Answered 2020-Oct-11 at 11:53

            You can use the querySelector function, and then call the innerHTML function:
