+## Writing Tests
+You can test a Grape API with RSpec. Tests make HTTP requests, therefore they must go into the `spec/request` group. You may want your API code to go into `app/api` - you can match that layout under `spec` by adding the following in `spec/spec_helper.rb`.

How would this work using Cucumber??


How about POST to grape


You can get some examples from the original Grape gem's source files.

Such as:
post "/data", '{"x":42}', { 'CONTENT_TYPE' => 'application/json' }
last_response.status.should == 201
last_response.body.should == '{"x":42}'
