    Scenario Outline: statement <header>
        Then some step
        And data table
        #> {}
        |header|<header>|
        But doc string
        #> json
        """

    Background: statement
        Given some step
    
    Example: statment
        When some step

    @taghere
    Scenario Template: statement <header>
        Then some step

        Scenarios:

Additional Features

  • Cucumon supports multiple examples
  • You can use your own logic to generate scenarios for scenario outline
Feature: Matrix Outliner

    Scenario Template: Matrix example
        Given an example 
        And I can Multiply <a> with <b>

        #> matrix: row 1
        Examples:
        | a |
        | 3 |

        #> matrix: row 2
        Examples:
        | b |
        | 4 |

Note that #> is a special statment considered as instruction statement. You'll get it's value as outline.examples[0].instruction.

const cucumon = new Cucumon({clubBgSteps: false});
cucumon.registerOutlineExpander((outline) => {});
