cypress-cucumber-preprocessor 4.1.0 - TSX and Multiline Step Arguments support

We've just released a new version of the cypress-cucumber-preprocessor package.

Multiline Step Arguments:

Thanks to @Enrico126 it allows usage of multiline step arguments, as showcased with a simple .feature example:

  Scenario Outline: DocString
    When I use DocString with argument like this:
      You have been granted <Role> rights.
      -The Admins
    Then I should have a string with argument "<Role>"

    |  Role     |
    |  Manager  |
    |  Admin    |

and matching step definition:

let argString = "";

When("I use DocString with argument like this:", (dataString) => {
  argString = dataString;

Then(/^I should have a string with argument "([^"]*)"$/, function (argument) {

TSX support:

Thanks to @mallison you should be able to use .tsx files as your step definitions. As noted by @azamuddin this change also allows the use of @cypress/react to test react components in isolation with cucumber.

  • Add types to your AWS lambda handler

    Lambdas handlers can be invoked with many different, but always complex, event arguments. Add to that the context, callback, matching return type and you basically start listing all the different ways that your function can fail in production.

  • How to expose a local service to the internet

    From time to time you might need to expose your locally running service to the external world - for example you might want to test a webhook that calls your service. To speed up the test/development feedback loop it would be great to be able to point that webhook to your local machine.

  • For loops in JavaScript (vs _.times)

    From time to time I still see a for loop in JavaScript codebases. Linters are frequently angry about them. Let's see how we can replace them.
