<%= header do %>
  <%= stylesheet_link_tag 'additional_styles' %>
<% end %>

<% end %>

The layout supports content overwritting by supplying defining content_for the following:

title, description, keywords, body_id, branding

bundle exec cucumber features

...within that folder to test the gem as though it was installed in a Rails app, so that you know it still works.
