Additionally, all WebdriverIO CLI options are supported.

The task may also be run via vue ui.



  • 1.x only supports webdriverio@4.x
  • 2.x only supports webdriverio@5.x


Defaults defined on plugin invocation will be stored in vue.config.js.

Defaults will be overriden by command line options on command invocation.

Settings defined within <projectRoot>/wdio.conf.js will be merged with the plugin's defaults.

To override internal configuration entirely use option --config to specify alternate configuration file. If you haven't already, run ./node_modules/.bin/wdio to configure WebdriverIO.

This plugin provides a number of WebdriverIO capabilities each utilising ChromeDriver. If you wish to run e2e tests with different capabilities, define them within <projectRoot>/wdio.conf.js.

When using --capabilities to run specs against a subset of devices, you must first capabilities.register within <projectRoot>/wdio.conf.js.

  // wdio.conf.js
  const { capabilities, Chrome } = require('vue-cli-plugin-e2e-webdriverio').capabilities
  capabilities.register('device', new Chrome({
    // ...options
  capabilities.register('other', new Chrome({
    // ...options

Then you can run a subset of capabilities like so yarn test:e2e --capabilities device

By default, tests are run in interactive mode, to run in headless mode (for CI) use option --headless.

Selenium commands will be executed synchronously by default. To override:

  // wdio.conf.js
  exports.config = {
    sync: false
    // ...

WebdriverIO hooks defined in <projectRoot>/wdio.conf.js will be appended to behaviour provided by plugin defaults unless run with alternate --config.

  // wdio.conf.js
  const { WDIOConfigDefault, capabilities, util } = require('vue-cli-plugin-e2e-webdriverio')
  const { resizeViewport, isDebug } = util
  const { Chrome } = capabilities
  const base = WDIOConfigDefault().config
  exports.config = {
    // your overrides here...
    capabilities: [
      new Chrome({
        browserName: 'chrome',
        chromeOptions: {
          args: [
            // etc...
        viewportSize: {
          width: 1024,
          height: 768,
        // etc...
    beforeSuite: [
    afterTest: [
      (test) => {
        if (isDebug() && !test.passed) {
          saveScreenshot(test, 'path/to/screenshot.png')
      // ...
    // OR
    beforeSuite: (suite) => {
      // your behaviour here...

Consult WebdriverIO Configuration for available options and browser configuration.

You may need to set NODE_ENV and VUE_CLI_MODE if running tests in mode other than plugin default, production. The enviroment variable must be set before Vue CLI Service loadEnv called.

  // package.json
    "scripts": {
      "test:e2e": "NODE_ENV=development VUE_CLI_MODE=development vue-cli-service test:e2e"
