Test::BDD::Cucumber - Feature-complete Cucumber-style testing in Perl
# Driving tests using the 'pherkin' binary that comes with the distribution
$ pherkin -l -b t/
# Or choose a subset of tests to be run by selecting all scenarios tagged 'slow'
$ pherkin -l -b --tags @slow t/
# Or all those /not/ tagged 'slow'
$ pherkin -l -b --tags ~@slow
# Fail on missing steps (by default prints as orange output and succeeds tests)
$ pherkin -l -b --strict t/
# Driving tests using 'prove' integration
$ prove --source Feature --ext=.feature examples/
# Driving parallel tests using 'prove'
$ prove -r --source Feature -j 9 --ext=.feature t/
Cucumber for Perl, integrated with Test2, Test::More and prove.
The implementation supports the following Gherkin keywords in feature files: Feature, Scenario, Scenario Outline, Examples, Given, When, Then, And and But. Additionally, Scenario can be used as a synonym for Scenario Outline (with Examples). This best maps to Gherkin version 6.0.13, but without support for its new Rule and Example keywords.
This implementation supports the same languages as Gherkin 15.0.0 - that is, it supports exactly the same translated keywords.
Behaviour of this module is similar to that, but sometimes different from the real Cucumber, the plan is to move use the same parser and behaviour.
This module comes with a few introductory tutorials.
A Cucumber feature writing tutorial
for those new to Cucumber and BDD testing
A Step writing tutorial
to get you started writing the code run for each Given, Then, When step
A guide on integrating with your test suite
An architecture overview
for those who want to extend or hook into feature file execution

One thing need specific mentioning:
Due to the use of its own parser, differences probably exist in the interpretation of feature files when comparing to Cucumber.
Also see the issue for tracking this topic.
