  • strictdoc

  • hitchstory

    Type-safe YAML integration tests. Tests that write your docs. Tests that rewrite themselves.

    Project mention: Ask HN: BDD and Gherkin tests, do they provide value in the real world? | | 2023-06-08

    I like the idea a lot but I felt that the Gherkin language itself was inappropriate for the task for four main reasons:

    * Verbosity

    * Not type safe

    * It doesnt have story abstractions (i.e. you can't flexibly create variations on a story).

    * The use of regexes for parsing

    I created a YAML based alternative with python that I think has all of the benefits and fixes those 4 problems:

  • sphinxcontrib-hdl-diagrams

    Sphinx Extension which generates various types of diagrams from Verilog code.

  • qe-docset

    Dash docset generator for Quantum ESPRESSO.
