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!
