Cucumber Automated tests in plain language, for Node.js

#StandWithUkraine npm build coverage backers sponsors pull requests issues

Cucumber is a tool for running automated tests written in plain language. Because they're written in plain language, they can be read by anyone on your team. Because they can be read by anyone, you can use them to help improve communication, collaboration and trust on your team.

This is the JavaScript implementation of Cucumber. It runs on maintained versions of Node.js. You can quickly try it via CodeSandbox, or read on to get started locally in a couple of minutes.

Cucumber is available on npm:

$ npm install @cucumber/cucumber

Get Started

Let's take this example of something to test:

class Greeter {
  sayHello() {
    return 'hello'

First, write your feature in features/greeting.feature:

Feature: Greeting

  Scenario: Say hello
    When the greeter says hello
    Then I should have heard "hello"

Next, implement your steps in features/support/steps.js:

const assert = require('assert')
const { When, Then } = require('@cucumber/cucumber')
const { Greeter } = require('../../src')

When('the greeter says hello', function () {
  this.whatIHeard = new Greeter().sayHello()

Then('I should have heard {string}', function (expectedResponse) {
  assert.equal(this.whatIHeard, expectedResponse)

Finally, run Cucumber:

$ npx cucumber-js

And see the output:

If you learn best by example, we have a repo with several example projects, that might help you get going.
