cuke-steps

Cucumber step documentation.

This is a small script that reads Cucumber/Gherkin step definition files and outputs pretty-printed documentation of those steps. It is meant as a tool for developers to easily see what step definitions already exist.

Currently supported output formats include HTML and Confluence wiki markup. The documentation can be pushed into a wiki using the [Confluence Publisher Plugin] cpp for Jenkins. Adding outputters for other formats is straightforward.

Usage

ruby cuke-steps.rb [options] <directories...>

In its simplest form:

ruby cuke-steps.rb features/

Supported options:

  • -f FORMAT, --format FORMAT
    Select output format, either "html" or "cf"

  • -o FILE, --output FILE
    Output to FILE, default "steps.html" or "steps.cf"

  • -h, --help
    Usage instructions

This will scan the provided directories for step definition files (*.rb) and output the documentation in the specified file.

The tool supports having step definitions in multiple directories. It will generate a separate section for each directory specified on the command line.

TODO

  • Create a gem out of it
  • Add options for defining a base URL prefix and postfix, and make the file names in the output link to a source repo or Jenkins workspace
