Clucumber, the CL Cucumber adapter
This is a (somewhat complete) implementation of the cucumber wire protocol in (as portable as possible) Common Lisp. This means you can write cucumber features, and write lisp code to execute your steps.
First, you write your cucumber features like you would any other.
Then you define cucumber steps in CL: Just place them in features/step_definitions/*.lisp.
If your application needs any support code, place that in support/*.lisp.
Files in support and step_definitions/ are loaded (not file-compiled) in alphabetical order, with support/ files being loaded before step definitions.
features/support/env.rb, you load the clucumber.rb included in this distribution. Then, you run something like this:
begin @main_clucumber = ClucumberSubprocess.new(File.expand_path("../", File.dirname(__FILE__)), :port => 42428) at_exit do @main_clucumber.kill end @main_clucumber.start <<-LISP ;; Put code here that loads your application. LISP rescue PTY::ChildExited puts(@main_clucumber && @main_clucumber.output) end
This will launch a lisp with clucumber loaded (pass :lisp parameter to
ClucumberSubprocess.new to specify which lisp, it defaults to sbcl), and start listening on port 42428.
Then, on the command line, you run cucumber:
And you watch the lines zip by.
That should be all (-:
Over the next few days, I hope to fill out the test suite with more interesting examples that you can use as a reference.
