What’s mining: Cucumber support

We’ve heard a lot of buzz around Cucumber BDD framework during the RailsConf. We ourselves, think Cucumber is very interesting. Aslak Hellesøy (the author of the framework) has been presenting it on a session and the tool was mentioned on many other sessions and tutorials.

Aslak has also come to our booth to ask about our Cucumber support plans. We had not worked on it before the RailsConf. But…

We’ve been mining… during session breaks, during the flights back home and so on.

So, with the nearest update RubyMine will provide initial support for Cucumber. It will include the syntax highlighting for Cucumber steps and definition files. In RubyMine 1.1, scheduled before the end of May, will also add special run configurations and some more intelligence and assistance for testing with Cucumber.

Stay tuned for updates!

  1. That’s great news, I’m glad you’re keeping it agile, releasing often and keeping the pace and engaging with the community :)

  2. Thanks Miguel! You got the idea — to release often.

    Good news! I agree with Miguel. Good job.

  4. This is great news! A couple of feature requests and minor changes to make this work somothly have already been brought to my attention, and I’ll do my best to fix them quickly.

    Beautiful!! I have been using rubymine for corporate / non-osx work for a few months now and the lack of cuke support has been the main thing that i have missed. Looks like the feature highlighting is enabled in build 1.0.5

    А зачем городить трехэтажные решения, если можно попросту завернуть комментарии в ноиндекс и добавить атрибут нофоллов? Тогда ваш блог не попадёт ни в одну базу спамеров. Да и “ручные” комментаторы обломаются. Постоянных же комментаторов можно поощрять постовыми. Как по мне, довольно элегантое и эффективное решение…
