npm install cucumber-html-reporter --save-dev


  • Latest version supports Cucumber 3
  • Install cucumber-html-reporter@2.0.3 for cucumber version < Cucumber@3
  • Install cucumber-html-reporter@0.5.0 for cucumber version < Cucumber@2
  • Install cucumber-html-reporter@0.4.0 for node version <0.12


Let's get you started:

  1. Install the package through npm
  2. Create an index.js and specify the options. Example of bootstrap theme:
var reporter = require('cucumber-html-reporter');

var options = {
        theme: 'bootstrap',
        jsonFile: 'test/report/cucumber_report.json',
        output: 'test/report/cucumber_report.html',
        reportSuiteAsScenarios: true,
        scenarioTimestamp: true,
        launchReport: true,
        metadata: {
            "App Version":"0.3.2",
            "Test Environment": "STAGING",
            "Browser": "Chrome  54.0.2840.98",
            "Platform": "Windows 10",
            "Parallel": "Scenarios",
            "Executed": "Remote"


    //more info on `metadata` is available in `options` section below.

    //to generate consodilated report from multi-cucumber JSON files, please use `jsonDir` option instead of `jsonFile`. More info is available in `options` section below.

Please look at the Options section below for more options

  1. Run the above code in a node.js script after Cucumber execution:
node index.js

For CucumberJS

This module converts Cucumber's JSON format to HTML reports.

The code has to be separated from CucumberJS execution (after it).

In order to generate JSON formats, run the Cucumber to create the JSON format and pass the file name to the formatter as shown below,

$ cucumberjs test/features/ -f json:test/report/cucumber_report.json

Multiple formatter are also supported,

$ cucumberjs test/features/ -f summary -f json:test/report/cucumber_report.json

Are you using cucumber with other frameworks or running cucumber-parallel? Pass relative path of JSON file to the options as shown here



Available: ['bootstrap', 'hierarchy', 'foundation', 'simple'] Type: String

Select the Theme for HTML report.

N.B: Hierarchy theme is best suitable if your features are organized under features-folder hierarchy. Each folder will be rendered as a HTML Tab. It supports up to 3-level of nested folder hierarchy structure.


Type: String

Provide path of the Cucumber JSON format file


Type: String

If you have more than one cucumber JSON files, provide the path of JSON directory. This module will create consolidated report of all Cucumber JSON files.

e.g. jsonDir: 'test/reports' //where reports directory contains valid *.json files

N.B.: jsonFile takes precedence over jsonDir. We recommend to use either jsonFile or jsonDir option.


Type: String

Provide HTML output file path and name


Type: Boolean Supported in the Bootstrap theme.

true: Reports total number of passed/failed scenarios as HEADER.

false: Reports total number of passed/failed features as HEADER.


Type: Boolean

Automatically launch HTML report at the end of test suite

true: Launch HTML report in the default browser

false: Do not launch HTML report at the end of test suite


Type: Boolean

Report any bad json files found during merging json files from directory option.

true: ignore any bad json files found and continue with remaining files to merge.

false: Default option. Fail report generation if any bad files found during merge.


Type: String (optional)

Custom project name. If not passed, module reads the name from projects package.json which is preferable.


Type: String (optional)

Brand Title is the brand of your report, e.g. Smoke Tests Report, Acceptance Test Report etc as per your need. If not passed, it will be displayed as "Cucumberjs Report"


Available: [1, 2] Type: Number Default: 2

Select the Column Layout. One column or Two columns

1 = One Column layout (col-xx-12) 2 = Two Columns Layout (col-xx-6)


Type: Boolean Default: undefined

true: Stores the screenShots to the default directory. It creates a directory 'screenshot' if does not exists.

false or undefined : Does not store screenShots but attaches screenShots as a step-inline images to HTML report


Type: String (optional) Default: options.output/../screenshots

Applicable if storeScreenshots=true. Relative path for directory where screenshots should be saved. E.g. the below options should store the screenshots to the <parentDirectory>/screenshots/ where as the report would be at <parentDirectory>/report/cucumber_report.html

   output: '/report/cucumber_report.html',
   screenshotsDirectory: 'screenshots/',
   storeScreenshots: true


Type: Boolean Default: undefined

true: Applicable if storeScreenshots=true. Avoids inlining screenshots, uses relative path to screenshots instead (i.e. enables lazy loading of images).

false or undefined: Keeps screenshots inlined.


Type: Boolean Default: undefined

true: Applicable if theme: 'bootstrap'. Shows the starting timestamp of each scenario within the title.

false or undefined: Does not show starting timestamp.


Type: JSON (optional) Default: undefined

Print more data to your report, such as browser info, platform, app info, environments etc. Data can be passed as JSON key-value pair. Reporter will parse the JSON and will show the Key-Value under Metadata section on HTML report. Checkout the below preview HTML Report with Metadata.

Pass the Key-Value pair as per your need, as shown in below example,

 metadata: {
        "App Version":"0.3.2",
        "Test Environment": "STAGING",
        "Browser": "Chrome  54.0.2840.98",
        "Platform": "Windows 10",
        "Parallel": "Scenarios",
        "Executed": "Remote"

    return scenario.attach(new Buffer(buffer, 'base64'), 'image/png');

for Cucumber V2 and V3

  var world = this;

  driver.takeScreenshot().then(function (buffer) {
    return world.attach(buffer, 'image/png');
