NAME

       Test::BDD::Cucumber::Extension - Abstract superclass for extensions

VERSION

       version 0.60

DESCRIPTION

       Provides an abstract superclass for extensions.  Loaded extensions will have their hook-
       implementations triggered at specific points during the BDD script execution.

PROPERTIES

   config
       A hash, the configuration read from the config file, verbatim.  Extensions should look for
       their own configuration in
         $self->config->{extensions}->{<extension>}

METHODS

   steps_directories()
       The returns an arrayref whose values enumerate directories (relative to the directory of
       the extension) which hold step files to be loaded when the extension is loaded.

   pre_execute($app)
       Invoked by "App::pherkin" before executing any features.  This callback allows generic
       extension setup. Reports errors by calling croak(). It is called once per "App::pherkin"
       instance.

       Note that the "TAP::Parser::SourceHandler::Feature" plugin for "prove" might instantiate
       multipte "App::pherkin" objects, meaning it will create multiple instances of the
       extensions too. As such, this callback may be called once per instance, but multiple times
       in a Perl image.

       The source handler "fork"s the running Perl instance in order to support the parallel
       testing "-j" option. This callback will be called pre-fork.

   post_execute()
       Invoked by "App::pherkin" after executing all features.  This callback allows generic
       extension teardown and cleanup. Reports errors by calling croak().

       Note: When the "TAP::Parser::SourceHandler::Feature" plugin for "prove"
        is used, there are no guarantees at this point that this hook is called
        only once.

   pre_feature($feature, $feature_stash)
       Invoked by the Executor before executing the background and feature scenarios and their
       respective pre-hooks. Reports errors by calling croak().

   post_feature($feature, $feature_stash)
       Invoked by the Executor after executing the background and feature scenarios and their
       respective post-hooks. Reports errors by calling croak().

   pre_scenario($scenario, $feature_stash, $scenario_stash)
       Invoked by the Executor before executing the steps in $scenario and their respective pre-
       hooks. Reports errors by calling croak().

   post_scenario($scenario, $feature_stash, $scenario_stash, $failed)
       Invoked by the Executor after executing all the steps in $scenario and their respective
       post-hooks. Reports errors by calling croak().

       $failure indicates whether any of the steps in the scenario has failed.

   pre_step($step, $step_context)
       Invoked by the Executor before executing each step in $scenario.  Reports errors by
       calling croak().

       $step contains a reference to an array with step data:

         [ qr//, { meta => $data }, $code ]

       Feature and scenario stashes can be reached through

         $step_context->stash->{feature}
         # and
         $step_context->stash->{scenario}

       Feature, scenario and step (from the feature file) are available as

         $step_context->feature
         $step_context->scenario
         $step_context->step

       Note: executed steps, so not called for skipped steps.

   post_step($step, $step_context, $failed, $result)
       Invoked by the Executor after each executed step in $scenario.  Reports errors by calling
       croak().

       $failed indicates that the step has not been completed succesfully; this means the step
       can have failed, be marked as TODO or pending (not implemented).

       $result is a "Test::BDD::Cucumber::Model::Result" instance which holds the completion
       status of the step.

       Note: executed steps, so not called for skipped steps.
