.. warning::

This is a work-in-progress project. API may change while in in
version v0.X.Y.


1. Load the steps for your language

From your `` file import the step definition for your language:

.. code-block:: python

import behave_cmdline.steps.en # For English
# import # For Spanish

2. Add some hooks in your environment

Add this two lines in your ``, in the functions before and
after scenario. If you don't have those, then create them as in the

.. code-block:: python

from behave_cmdline import environment as cmdline

def before_scenario(context, scenario):
cmdline.before_scenario(context, scenario)
# The rest of your code goes here...

def after_scenario(context, scenario):
cmdline.after_scenario(context, scenario)
# The rest of your code goes here...

3. Write some features

Now you can invoke the steps from your features as usual. For the step
definition you can check the file `behave_cmdline/steps/` and

.. todo:: Write some feature examples.


You can help us translating the steps to your own language. Please,
