Provides composer command functionality to automate populate/update gherkin files as defined with acquia/drupal-spec-tool. No more copy and paste every time you adjust your specification spreadsheet. Instead, do a couple configuration steps at the start of your project and use this to keep your feature files up to date. This project requires a Composer setup since the commands are composer commands.

Getting started

Composer Config

The command needs a bit of outside information. The current method of providing that is through the extra config in your composer.json. Under extra, put a subkey drupal-spec-tools, and provide the following keys under that:

  • spreadsheet: The ID for your Drupal Spec Tool spreadsheet. It is the long random looking string/UUID in the url to access your spreadsheet. For example, in the id is 1h-SieCV9Dtrj8F4bqMvsbcHwIibN30j2oR9FMRDFT-8
  • credentials-path: The folder to get your google credentials from and store auth keys. WARNING: For security reasons under many situations, the credentials should not be committed to your repository.
  • feature-path (Optional)[default:'tests/features']: Where to put/update feature files. WARNING: Files sharing the same name as the Drupal Spec Tool features will be overwritten if they already exist.

Minimal example:

  "extra": {
    "drupal-spec-tool": {
        "credentials-path": "tests/drupal-spec-tool",
        "spreadsheet": "1a1B-4YFjueF0xM34CWA_xKcVc89rk_MlKW1aNFcfx3c"


You will need Google API Credentials - just complete step 1 and save your credentials.json to your credentials-path. As this only provides API access/can use up your API limits, this is probably safe to save in your repository if private.


In your project root, run composer drupal-spec-dump-gherkin.

On first run, this will ask you for access to the sheet. You will need to copy/paste the output authorization url and log in to Google and confirm access. This will save a token in the defined credentials path and as long as it is there you should not need to re-authenticate on futher runs.
