Pickles - The Open Source Living Documentation Generator


Package test results are passing.

This package was approved as a trusted package on 4/5/2018.

Pickles is an open source living documentation generator that works on feature files written in the Gherkin language, popularized in tools like Cucumber and SpecFlow.

Pickles can be incorporated into your build process to produce living documentation in a format that is more accessible to your clients. Gherkin language files are written in plain text and stored in your source folder. This can make them inaccessible to clients who may not know how to work with source control or who are not interested in seeing all of the source code, just the features.

Pickles can produce output in different formats:

  • Static HTML: a set of HTML files with minimal JavaScript
  • Dynamic HTML: a JavaScript-rich single page app with integrated search
  • Word: Microsoft Word
  • Excel: Microsoft Excel
  • JSON: a custom JSON format

Optionally, Pickles can integrate test results, so that your stakeholders know which scenarios pass validation. Pickles supports these test formats:

  • NUnit
  • MSTest
  • XUnit
  • SpecRun
  • Cucumber JSON

To install Pickles - The Open Source Living Documentation Generator, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

Virus Scan Results

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.


This package has no dependencies.
