Feedback appreciated as always.


Just start typing your gherkin or paste in what you have already. As you type you can preview the tidied output below and either click 'Tidy' or hit Ctrl+Enter to tidy what you have so far.

Don't spend time trying to align all the pipes in your Scenario Outline table - just generate a table using the tool, roughly populate it with values and hit 'Tidy' to get that perfect alignment. If adding another row, just click the 'Insert Row After' button.

If you would like to generate some cucumber for Java step definitions, hit the 'JAVA STEPS' tab, or, for Ruby step definitions, hit the 'RUBY STEPS' tab.

As an example, the following Gherkin:

Given I have a new <customerType> customer

Would generate the Java:

@Given("^I have a new (.+) customer$")
public void i_have_a_new_customer(String customertype) throws Throwable {
throw new PendingException();

And the following Ruby:

Given /^I have a new (.+) customer$/ do |customertype|
# do something

The generator will look for:

Parameters (for use with Example tables) such as <customerType>
Strings such as "customerA"
Lists of strings such as "customer1,customer2"

In each case the appropriate regular expression and annotation will be constructed for the generated Java method.

Further examples:

When customer "customerA" logs in


@When("^customer "([^"]*)" logs in$")
public void customer_something_logs_in(String strArg1) throws Throwable {
throw new PendingException();

Or for Ruby:

When /^customer "([^"]*)" logs in$/ do |customera|
# do something


Then the customer sees "transaction1,transaction2" in their history


@Then("^the customer sees "([^"]*)" in their history$")
public void the_customer_sees_something_in_their_history(List<String> list1) throws Throwable {
throw new PendingException();

Or for Ruby:

Then /^the customer sees "([^"]*)" in their history$/ do |transaction1transaction2|
# do something
