myriad-cucumber

myriad task that executes tests through cucumber-js

Usage

Install

myriad-cucumber is available as an npm module.

myriad-cucumber and the myriad-server modules should be added to your test codebase as dev dependencies. You can do this with:

$ npm install --save-dev myriad-cucumber
$ npm install --save-dev myriad-server

Alternatively you can manually add them to your package.json file:

{
  "devDependencies" : {
    "myriad-cucumber": "latest",
    "myriad-server": "latest"
  }
}

then install with:

$ npm install --dev

Config

You need to add a MyriadCucumberfile.js confg file to the your test codebase:

module.exports = {
  package: '.',
  profiles: {
    default: {
      bin: 'node_modules/.bin/cucumber-js',
      args: ['-format', 'json']
    }
  }
};

Multiple profiles can be configured and the cucumber tests will be executed multiple times, once for each profile. This can be useful for things like executing the same tests against both a desktop browser and mobile browser.

module.exports = {
  package: '.',
  profiles: {
    desktop: {
      bin: 'node_modules/.bin/cucumber-js',
      args: ['-format', 'json', '-t', '~@mobile-only']
    },
    mobile: {
      bin: 'node_modules/.bin/cucumber-js',
      args: ['-format', 'json', '-t', '~@desktop-only']
    }
  }
};

myriad-cucumber currently only works with cucumber's JSON formatter. It doesn't support the HTML or pretty formatters.

Run

myriad-cucumber is executed by running the following commands in two separate terminals:

$ node_modules/.bin/myriad-server
$ node_modules/.bin/myriad-cucumber --workers 4 --myriad-server http://localhost:7777

Example

See https://github.com/simondean/myriad-cucumber-js-example for an example test codebase that uses myriad-cucumber and cucumber-js.
