Note on Patches/Pull Requests

  • Fork the project.
  • Make your feature addition or bug fix.
  • Add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.
  • Commit, do not mess with Rakefile, version, or history. (if you want to have your own version, that is fine but bump version in a commit by itself I can ignore when I pull)
  • Send me a pull request. Bonus points for topic branches.

Running tests

gem install bundler
bundle install
git submodule update --init --recursive

Release Process

Before you even attempt to do a release, make sure you can log into and touch a file in /var/www/cucumber/api/ruby (see gem_tasks/yard.rake). You need to be able to do this in order to upload YARD docs as part of the release.

  • Bump the version number in lib/cucumber/platform.rb.
  • Make sure is updated with the upcoming version number, and has entries for all fixes.
  • No need to add a header at this point - this should be done when a new change is made, later.

Now release it

bundle update
git commit -m "Release X.Y.Z"
rake release
