Subplot README

Subplot README

2021-10-23 08:05

Capture and communicate acceptance criteria for software and systems, and how they are verified, in a way that’s understood by all project stakeholders.

Acceptance criteria are expressed as scenarios in the Cucumber given/when/then style:

given a web site
when I retrieve the site front page
then it contains “Subplot”
and it contains “acceptance criteria”

0.1 When all stakeholders really need to understand acceptance criteria

Subplot is a set of tools for specifying, documenting, and implementing automated acceptance tests for systems and software. Subplot tools aim to produce a human-readable document of acceptance criteria and a program that automatically tests a system against those criteria. The goal is for every stakeholder in a project to understand the project’s acceptance criteria and how they’re verified.

See for the home page.

0.2 Hacking Subplot

Subplot is written using the Rust programming language, so the usual workflow for Rust applies. To build run cargo build, to run tests in Rust run cargo test. You probably need to install Rust using rustup: the version packaged in a Linux distribution is likely too old.

To run the whole test suite, including testing all examples and Subplot self tests, run ./check at the root of the source tree.

You’ll need to install build dependencies installed. On a system running Debian or a derivative of it:

$ sudo apt-get install build-essential git debhelper dh-cargo python3 \
  pandoc texlive-latex-base texlive-latex-recommended \
  texlive-fonts-recommended librsvg2-bin graphviz pandoc-citeproc \
  plantuml daemonize lmodern procps

Additionally, any packages reported by running the following command:

$ dpkg-checkbuilddeps

To build the Debian package:

$ git archive HEAD | gzip > "../subplot_$(dpkg-parsechangelog -SVersion | sed 's/-.*$//').orig.tar.gz"
$ dpkg-buildpackage -us -uc
