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?
