npm install --save-dev @serenity-js/cucumber

Please note that Serenity/JS WebdriverIO / Cucumber integration supports both Serenity/JS reporting services and native Cucumber.js reporters.

Usage with Jasmine

To use Serenity/JS WebdriverIO with Jasmine, install the following adapter:

npm install --save-dev @serenity-js/jasmine

Usage with Mocha

To use Serenity/JS WebdriverIO with Mocha, install the following adapter:

npm install --save-dev @serenity-js/mocha

Configuring Webdriverio

// wdio.conf.ts

// Import Serenity/JS reporting services, a.k.a. the "Stage Crew Members"
import { ArtifactArchiver } from '@serenity-js/core';
import { ConsoleReporter } from '@serenity-js/console-reporter';
import { SerenityBDDReporter } from '@serenity-js/serenity-bdd';
import { Photographer, TakePhotosOfFailures, WebdriverIOConfig } from '@serenity-js/webdriverio';

export const config: WebdriverIOConfig = {
    // Tell WebdriverIO to use Serenity/JS framework
    framework: '@serenity-js/webdriverio',

    serenity: {
        // Configure Serenity/JS to use an appropriate test runner adapter
        runner: 'cucumber',
        // runner: 'mocha',
        // runner: 'jasmine',

        // Register StageCrewMembers we've imported at the top of this file    
        crew: [
            ArtifactArchiver.storingArtifactsAt(process.cwd(), 'target/site/serenity'),
            new SerenityBDDReporter(),

    // configure Cucumber runner
    cucumberOpts: {
        // see the Cucumber configuration options below

    // or Jasmine runner
    jasmineOpts: {
        // see the Jasmine configuration options below

    // or Mocha runner
    mochaOpts: {
        // see the Mocha configuration options below

    specs: [
        // load Cucumber feature files
        // or Mocha/Jasmine spec files 
        // './spec/**/*.spec.ts',

    // add any additional native WebdriverIO reports
    // reporters: [
    //     'spec',
    // ],

    // ... other WebdriverIO-specific configuration
