Cucumber Problems with setup selenium/webrat + languages

Hi all,

i’ve gotten started with cucumber thanks to Fernando and Raimond who
gave a brilliant talk about cucumber at the Conferencia Rails in
Madrid a few weeks ago. Congratulations again guys!

Thanks also to Joseph W. who helped me out on IRC getting selenium
up and running!

Well, since then i got started using cucumber, first with webrat and
then i tried it out with selenium. Now i am trying to have a parallel
setup like this:

features/features_plain/.features
features/features_plain/step_definitions/
.rb
features/features_plain/support/env.rb (require webrat here)

features/features_with_ajax/.features
features/features_with_ajax/step_definitions/
.rb
features/features_with_ajax/support/env.rb (require selenium here)

My profiles look like this:
webrat: --language es features/features_plain
selenium: --language es features/features_with_ajax

So now it almost seems to work. My problem is the spanish keywords are
recognized inside the features but not inside the steps. So if i
change “Cuando” for “When” inside a step then it works, etc.

Obviously my target is to write the features and step_definitions in
the same language, consistently throughout a project, depending on the
language spoken by the client.

Also, i am looking into a way of sharing common step_definitions,
maybe inside a folder features/common_step_definitions and maybe
require it in both profiles?

Any hints and suggestions very appreciated!

Cucumber is awesome! Keep rocking!
Alberto.

Currently you have to alias the 4-5 methods yourself. I recommend doing
that
in your env.rb file - and make sure the stepd_definitions files require
env
at the top.

I’ll add an automatic alias of the methods so you don’t have to do it
manually. Next release.

For example, we’ve got these three aliases for our daily pleasure:

module Cucumber::StepMethods
alias_method :Dado, :Given
alias_method :Cuando, :When
alias_method :Entonces, :Then
end

I’ll add an automatic alias of the methods so you don’t have to do it

Cool!!!
