Table of Content

Allure allows you to generate beautiful test reports that can be easily be integrated with WebdriverIO. Let’s take a look at how to do that:


npm install @wdio/allure-reporter --save-dev


exports.config = {
  // ...
  reporters: [
        // test results will generate in the directory mentioned below
        outputDir: 'allure-results',
  // ...

Run tests

npx wdio – This will generate a new directory allure-results containing all the test results as a bunch of JSON files

Display the report

To display the report, you need to first install Allure command line tool – npm install -g allure-commandline --save-dev.

Once installed run the following command to process the results – allure generate allure-results && allure open

This will open up a new browser window and will display all the results in a beautiful HTML format. 🙌
