Table Diff

A simple library for use in testing to compare an actual and expected table. Compatible with Cucumber, Rspec, and Turnip


A table is essentially an array of arrays. Cucumber and Turnip both provide table classes that should be compatible with this library.

A sample table:

  [ "Name", "Age", "Height" ], # The first 'row' will be used as headers
  [ "Dave", "99" , " 999cm" ],
  [ "Andy", "99" , " 999cm" ]

This would be printed as:

| Name | Age | Height |
| Dave | 99  | 999cm  |
| Andy | 99  | 999cm  |

Usage, expected).should_not be_different


  • Should handle extra rows
  • Should handle extra columns


Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'table_diff'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install table_diff
