Feature documentation!BooNeed plugin for Visual StudioCant use refactoring toolsBecomes a pain to keep the feature file text in sync with the regexEnter the Kumara!Nee CalcotGiven when then syntaxGiven(List)When(List)Then(List)Its still just code, but its very readable (maybe even by a BA? Or tester?)</p> <p>ICondition</p> <p>Wait, how can a condition satisfy itself???</p> <p>ActionBasedCondition implements ICondition</p> <p>Example of an ActionBasedCondition</p> <p> and another one with preconditions</p> <p>So basically, with Kumara:You define some Root Nouns(the things you interact with in a test)</p> <p>You create some IConditions on those root nouns</p> <p>You write tests using those conditions</p> <p>How does Kumara use WebDriver?</p> <p>Commonly, by CSS:</p> <p>Then your tests can be all like</p> <p>The awesomest thing about Selenium is</p> <p>Review past tests, watch videos:</p> <p>Run in any combination of OS and browser</p> <p>Also awesome: PhantomJSVery fast!Runs locally, so less network latency for WebDriver calls,bloating out the test runtime</p> <p>Build it into your CI flow, for early feedback</p> <p>Questions?</p>
