Wally is a web-based Cucumber viewer and navigator.


The first cut of a feature is collabatively written; but it then seems to become the property of developers, who commit it to a version control system.

The product owner or business analyst usually does not want to use an IDE or VCS client to view requiements. They also want to search or group features and scenarios.

What's wrong with Relish?

Many of the ideas have been borrowed from Matt Wynne's Relish product, but we;

Didn't want

  • To sign-in

Wanted to

  • Use it through mobile devices
  • Easily group features and scenarios by tags
  • Count features and tags
  • Include a project progress bar (based on tags)


  • Install mongodb and ensure it is running (e.g. '~ $ ./mongodb-xxxxx-xxxx-x.x.x/bin/mongod')
  • gem install wally
  • you might also want mongo_mapper (gem install mongo_mapper)


  • create a '.wally' file and enter any authentication text you like (echo myPassword > .wally)
  • run wally server (in the same dir that you put the .wally file)
  • check http://localhost:4567/
  • import your features (from local dir) wally push http://localhost:4567/projects/project-name feature-dir


If you walk in to a British fish shop and ask for a wally you'll receive a pickled gherkin.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
