Fast Gherkin lexer and parser based on Ragel. Gherkin is two things:

  • The language that has evolved out of the Cucumber project.

  • This library

Running RSpec and Cucumber tests

rake clean spec cucumber

Release process

  • Run “rake clean spec cucumber” for each platform (1.8.6, 1.8.7, 1.9, jruby) to make sure all is green.

  • rvm 1.8.7

  • Bump version in the VERSION file

  • rake clean jar compile

  • rake gemspec

  • git commit -a -m “Release vX.Y.Z”

  • rake release

  • ./

  • gem push pkg/… (for each native gem)

Note on Patches/Pull Requests

  • Fork the project.

  • Run rake ragel:rb to generate all the I18N lexers

  • 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.txt. (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.
