Overview of RCumber
RCumber is a rails plugin that gives your customers a web interface where they can view, edit and run Cucumber tests directly on your rails project.
First you need to have "rspec":http://github.com/dchelimsky/rspec/tree/master, "rspec-on-rails":http://github.com/dchelimsky/rspec-rails/tree/master and "Cucumber":https://github.com/cucumber/cucumber installed and you'll need to have some cucumber tests written in your project.
Documentation / Wiki
Currently, Rcumber is just a simple CRUD viewer for cucumber tests in a rails project with the ability to run the tests and see the results.
- Not displaying
stderrin test results - Need a tighter way to run than using
- Not handling creating a new test with the same name as an existing test - currently overwrites
- need to improve field checking, error handling and help on creation screen - it's confusing - do they really need to manage the filename?
ROADMAP / UPCOMING FEATURES
- Show all tests next to the current test for faster navigation.
- Create a demo/home site at radsoft.com where people can play with this plugin
- Add some screen shots to the home site
- Graphical commander panel to run and show the red/green
- Run all tests or a selected set of tests at once
- Click on a stack trace in the results and navigate to textmate
- Extract user configurable parameters into a ./config file
- Integrate some relevant 3rd party agile articles/blogs on story tests and cucumber using a feed from radsoft.com (user definable).
- better graphical feedback on a test run
- structured editing of a cucumber test
- subversion and git integration for auto-commit of story test updates
3rd PARTY INTEGRATION PLANS
- Integration with radtrack - see radtrack project for details
If you're looking at this right now - it's only been a day since I've pulled this out of a project (and I'm still a newbie at building my own plugin) - and there's some kinks - here they are - any help would be appreciated!:
Add to your routes
You need to add the following to your
routes.rb until I figure out how to bootstrap this in the plugin init process:
map.rcumber 'rcumber', :controller => 'rcumbers', :action => 'index' map.resources :rcumbers do |rcumber| rcumber.run 'run', :controller => 'rcumbers', :action => 'run' end
It's simple to add rcumber to your rails project - just install it as plugin into your project:
cd ./vendor/plugins git clone git://github.com/jgoodsen/rcumber.git cd rcumber rake rcumber:install <-- all this does is copy the nifty cucumber.gif to your /images directory
Step two: just start your rails server and visit http://localhost:3000/rcumber
That's it! You should be looking at your cool cukes through a sexy web interface.
