Getting started with Cucumber

Cucumber supports over a dozen different software platforms. Every Cucumber implementation provides the same overall functionality, but they also have their own installation procedure and platform-specific functionality.

Reference

The features that are common to all Cucumber implementations are documented in the reference manual. If you're looking for a reference implementation of "cucumber" using the latest "gherkin"-parser, have a look at microcuke. It's a tiny reference implementation in about 500 SLOC that can be ported to a new language in a day or two. Assuming there is a Gherkin3 port as well, which takes another 2-4 days to port.
