Installation

To install this package and add it to your package.json just run:

npm install protractor-cucumber-steps --save-dev

Importing and enabling

This package is used as plugin with protractor and protractor-cucumber-framework. It is quite simple to use - to get access to all Cucumber steps defined in this plugin just:

  • add the path to protractor-cucumber-steps in cucumberOpts: { require: ... inside protractor.conf.js;
  • add the path to your page object file in params: { pageObjects: ... inside protractor.conf.js.

Here is a short config example for protractor.conf.js:

exports.config = {
    // set to "custom" instead of cucumber
    framework: 'custom',
 
    // path relative to the current config file
    frameworkPath: require.resolve('protractor-cucumber-framework'),
 
    // require feature files
    specs: [
        'path/to/feature/files/**/*.feature' // accepts a glob
    ],
 
    cucumberOpts: {
        // require step definitions
        require: [
            './node_modules/protractor-cucumber-steps/index.js', // path to protractor-cucumber-steps
            'path/to/your/step/definitions/**/*.steps.js' // accepts a glob
        ]
    },
 
    // Custom parameters can be specified here
    params: {
        pageObjects: require('./page_objects/index.js') // path to your page object file
    }
};

How to comment out a line in the feature file

You can add comments in .feature files using # for single line comments. Multiline (or block) comments are not supported in Gherkin out of the box (see https://github.com/cucumber/gherkin/issues/203), so you have to prefix all lines with # like this:

# Test single line comment 1
# Test single line comment 2
Scenario: Commit to open source should be joyful
  When I commit
  Then I get a star
  # And a commented out step
