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.

  • 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.

  • Sharing scalars between modules with Chimp

    Simplify your Chimp-based project even further with a new @predefined Scalar directive.

  • Adding TypeScript to the official Apollo Platform Tutorial app

    In todays video I go through a preparation of the official Apollo Platform Tutorial App for adding Chimp to it. I decided to divide that task into two steps - first is adding TypeScript to the codebase. Watch me work, struggle, fly through code, hopefully you will learn some tricks :)
