Cucumber Pretty and Monochrome Reports

The first plugin, we will talk about is Pretty.  This provides more verbose output. To implement this, just specify plugin = “pretty” in CucumberOptions. This is what the code looks like:

    plugin = {"pretty"},
    features = {"features"},
    monochrome = true,
    strict = true,
    dryRun = false,
    tags = {"@classobjects"}

pretty display report in console by default. Output should look like below when monochrome = false. If the monochrome option is set to false, then the console output is not as readable as it should be.

Now, Let's set the monochrome as true and see the output in console. Now, it's more readable.

And I fill in "input[id='email']" with "" # com.pb.cucumbertest.stepdefinitions.StepDefinitions.i_fill_in_with(java.lang.String,java.lang.String)
  And I click on "button[type='submit'] span i"                        # com.pb.cucumbertest.stepdefinitions.StepDefinitions.i_click_sign_in_button(java.lang.String)
