Cucumber hoe dependency


#1

Hi

Am I right thinking that Cucumber needs hoe, but it’s not an explicit
gem dependency? If so, how come?

Thanks

It only needs hoe if you’re developing/extending cucumber itself. If
you’re just using it, you don’t need hoe.

It should probably be listed as a developer dep for rubygems >= 1.2.

You need hoe to develop on Cucumber, but not to use it.

Ah ok. I’ve had Cucumber complain about hoe been missing when I was
just using it like a normal user. Not sure what I was doing now, I
just installed hoe and carried on…

Sometime soon I’ll dig hoe out of my system (ho, ho*), and see if it
still complains…
