Gitnesse is a Cucumber-wiki integration tool. It enables a project to store cucumber features in a git-based wiki, and then test them against your code. Conceptually influenced by Fitnesse


Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'gitnesse'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install gitnesse

For Rails 3, create an initializer file config/initializer/gitnesse.rb like this:

Gitnesse.config do |config|
  config.repository_url = ""


For Rails 3 there is a rake task:

$ rake gitnesse

Not Rails 3 ? There is available an executable that requires the path to the configuration file:

$ GITNESSE_CONFIG='./gitnesse_config.rb' gitnesse


For Rails 3 there is a rake task:


    - implement git push back to git wiki
    - rake tasks for push/pull/run


  1. Fork it
  2. Create your feature branch (git checkout -b my-new-feature)
  3. Commit your changes (git commit -am 'Add some feature')
  4. Push to the branch (git push origin my-new-feature)
  5. Create new Pull Request
