Spreewald: Old-school cucumber steps, freshly pickled

Cucumber_rails' old-school web-steps have been deprecated for a while, urging developers to write high-level step definitions that directly use Capybara or Webrat.

We think that's a bit drastic. More high-level steps are good, but ticking the odd check box with a general step is not always bad.

So we took the old web steps, improved them a bit, added some other favorites of ours (steps for emails, tables, time travelling etc), and put all into a jar. Or gem.

Introducing Spreewald!

If you want to migrate an existing cucumber suite, check out the migration guide.

You can find a list of all supplied steps in the readme on github.
