coulda gives you Cucumber-like BDD power but with an internal DSL. This means no “call-by-regexp” and no Gherkin/plain-text/external DSL. coulda is just code – but with a Cucumber-like take on BDD.
coulda, obviously was inspired by Cucumber, Shoulda, but also Thor. coulda believes that the best way to reuse code is the good ol' fashioned method. Instead of sharing files of regexps mapped to procs, you just write methods. That simple.
You can define the implementation of your Given/When/Then right there with the behavior description. Or, if you want to reuse some Givens/Whens/Thens, just write a method! And if you find your Feature is getting too bloated or that you would like to reuse Givens/Whens/Thens between features, put them in a helper.
Easy as pie.
