lettuce

Version 0.1 - barium

On release names

Lettuce release names will be inspired by any green stuff.

Barium: In form of "barium nitrate" is commonly used to make green fireworks. Such a good name for a first version :)

What

Lettuce is a BDD tool for python, 100% inspired on cucumber.

Motivation

  1. Cucumber makes Ruby even more sexy. Python needed something like it.
  2. Testing must be funny and easy.
  3. Most python developers code in python, not ruby.
  4. Ruby has Capistrano, Python has Fabric. Ruby has cucumber, Python has lettuce.
  5. I personally don't like mixing many languages in small projects. Keeping all in python is better.
  6. I love python, and ever did. But I also ever missed something that make writing tests easier and funnier.
  7. I like nose, which is a unittest pythonic framework. However, as the project I work on grows, so do the tests, and it becomes harder to understand them.

Special thanks

  1. Cucumber crew, for creating such a AWESOME project, and for inspiring Lettuce.
  2. Tatiana for helping a lot with documentation.
  3. Django which documentation structure was borrowed.
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
