a collaborative bdd project planning tool for node

prenup allows you to meaningfully engage your clients and convert their domain knowledge into tangible milestones, features, scenarios, and unit tests.


  • Scenarios are created using kyuri, a custom dialect of Gherkin geared towards asynchronous programming
  • Intuitive and friendly user interface that takes the frustration out of Behavior Driven Development
  • Generates VowsJS testing stubs (Vows is a well established node.js testing framework)
  • Milestones, Features, Scenarios, Points
  • Support for 160+ languages
  • Heavily influenced by Cucumber. If you know Cuke, you know prenup.

VowsJS is a popular Behavior Driven Development framework for node.js. Vows was built from the ground up to test asynchronous code. It executes your tests in parallel when it makes sense, and sequentially when there are dependencies.

Instead of crafting your VowsJS code from hand (using JavaScript), kyuri allows you to auto-generate Vows stubs.


kyuri comes pre-bundled with prenup. kyuri is the language used to describe your Features and Scenarios. kyuri is a dialect of Gherkin, a well establish BDD language made popular by Cucumber.
