livingdocs 0.2.0

Create living documentation from BDD specs

Using a Python BDD test runner like behave, create living documentation from your BDD feature files. This library will create documents that contain up-to-date information about your BDD specs and helps generate a static site for your living documentation.

Current supported document types:

  • *.mmark files (to be used by Hugo)


pip install livingdocs

You should also install the Hugo binaries in order to generate your static site:

Quick Start

Use the CLI command livingdocs to configure your Hugo site:

$ livingdocs
  Your site's title: <enter title>
  Your site's description: <enter description>

This will create a livingdocs folder in your root directory which will have a Hugo skeleton to create a static site.

Using a test runner like behave, you can generate documents for each feature, scenario and step. In, you can use the DocsMaker to capture this information:

from livingdocs.maker import DocsMaker

def before_all(context): = DocsMaker('feature')

def before_scenario(context, scenario):, scenario)

def after_scenario(context, scenario):, scenario)

def before_feature(context, feature):, feature)

def after_feature(context, feature):, feature)

def before_step(context, step):, step)

def after_step(context, step):
    if context.browser is an instance
    of Selenium Webdriver, then it will
    take a snapshot of this step.
    """, step)


First create a virtual env, then to run the tests use:

tox -e py27
