    Tool to format gherkin-ast model to gherkin string


    The format function of this package provides a formatted string (gherkin document) from your AST.

    In TypeScript

    import {format, FormatOptions} from "gherkin-formatter";
    import {Document} from "gherkin-ast";
    import {read} from "gherkin-io";
    const document: Document[] = await read("./test.feature");
    const options: FormatOptions = {separateStepGroups : false};
    console.log(format(document[0], options));
    // Feature: Test Feature
    //   As a user...

    In JavaScript

    const {format, FormatOptions} = require("gherkin-formatter");
    const {Document} = require("gherkin-ast");
    const {read} = require("gherkin-io");
    const document = await read("./test.feature");
    const options = {
        separateStepGroups: false
    console.log(format(document[0], options));
    // Feature: Test Feature
    //   As a user...

    Configuration - FormatConfig

    Passing a FormatConfig object to format method (or other Ast type methods where it's applicable), how feature file text is rendered can be set.

    Option Description Default
    oneTagPerLine Should the tags be rendered separately, one by line? false, i.e., all tags of a scenario, feature, etc. will be rendered in the same line
    separateStepGroups Should step groups (when-then) be separated? false
    compact Should empty lines be skipped, removed from the result? false, i.e., there will be empty lines in appropriate places
    lineBreak The line break character(s). null, i.e., it will determine the line-break based on the platform
    indentation The indentation character(s). ' ', i.e., it uses two space characters to add indentation where it's appropriate
