Form filling using tables (Cucumber/AngularJS/Chai/Protractor)

Rather than pollute your Gherkin with “I fill in …” lines, you can create your own Gherkin and code, using table format. Many make mistaken assumption that Gherkin is somehow fixed format. Yes, the Regex trigger is the “Given”, “When”, “Then”, “And”. But Gherkin is supposed to be based on natural language, so as long as you observe some programming principles to creating new Gherkin, create your own. It’s encouraged as there is no way the out-of-the-box Gherkin provided by BDD products will completely accommodate your project requirements.
