How Can I Debug My Cucumber Right in the Middle of Test Run?
I am currently using cucumber/capybara to test my Rails app and now I’m facing a problem: how the heck can I debug my test right in the middle?
I have found a gem called pry-debugger and since I use pry, so I just want to give it a try.
Install gem “pry”, “pry-debugger” in Gemfile
gem 'pry-rails' gem 'pry-debugger'
In support/env.rb require the gem
binding.prybefore the line that you want to debug
bundle exec cucumber --tags @dev; cannot run in Rubymine since there’s no pry console REPL
Pry Debugger useful commands
step: Step execution into the next line or method. Takes an optional numeric argument to step multiple times.
next: Step over to the next line within the same frame. Also takes an optional numeric argument to step multiple lines.
finish: Execute until current stack frame returns.
continue: Continue program execution and end the Pry session.
Stepping through code often? Add the following shortcuts to ~/.pryrc:
if defined?(PryDebugger) Pry.commands.alias_command 'c', 'continue' Pry.commands.alias_command 's', 'step' Pry.commands.alias_command 'n', 'next' Pry.commands.alias_command 'f', 'finish' end
