The 0.9.0 release has no known issues with Cucumber. A comment in http://hotgazpacho.org/2009/06/cucumber-and-ironruby-it-runs/ mentions a EncoderFallbackException issue, but Tomas checked and it was because the user was using a non-standard character for “-“ (hyphen). If you are interested in using Cucumber, please do try it out and open bugs on http://ironruby.codeplex.com/ for any issues you see so that they can be fixed for the next release.

I am very interested in using cucumber for my .Net projects, so I'm willing to give it a go at porting win32console. To that end, I've created a git repo for it on GitHub: http://github.com/hotgazpacho/ironruby-win32console

Any guidance anyone can offer would be appreciated. Thanks!

With a build from the latest sources, the Cucumber C# example from http://wiki.github.com/aslakhellesoy/cucumber/ironruby-and-net is working. Also, only two of the Cucumber tests fail. One seems to be a test issue, and the other is because of http://ironpython.codeplex.com/WorkItem/View.aspx?WorkItemId=22984. Please try out Cucumber and let us know what your experience is.

One usability issue is that Cucumber uses the win32console gem to color-code the results it prints to the console, so that failures are in red, etc. However, the win32console is a native gem and does not work with IronRuby, and so you do not get colored output. It should be quite easy to implement the win32console library in pure Ruby code (but marked with platform="ironruby" as mentioned at http://ironruby.net/Documentation/Real_Ruby_Applications/RubyGems) using the System.Console functionality. Anyone interested in doing this?
