Cucumber

The more I use Cucumber on the Blacklight project, the more I like it. Sometimes, when I’m feeling lazy, it seems that it’s just taking up my time. But every time I use it I’m glad I did. Cucumber holds my hand as I write my features and scenarios. Write scenarios, watch them fail, copy-paste the output to a step, write the application code, pass, move on. When I’m done, I’ve got running code that specifies a feature and its scenarios. This really paid off the other day when I was refactoring the code behind Blacklight’s search history feature.
