Shared behaviors in Cucumber?


#1

Hello RSpec group, is there a way to do RSpec-style shared behaviors in
Cucumber? Or something similar?


#2

You have Background in the new 0.2 version (not released yet) which
lets you specify some Given steps for all the scenarios in a feature.

Other than that there’s the super-steps, which also give you really
nice re-use:

Plus you can use Scenario Outlines to DRY up similar scenarios:
