Subplot -- acceptance criteria documentation and verification
Capture and communicate acceptance criteria for software and systems, and how they are verified, in a way that's understood by all project stakeholders.
Acceptance criteria are expressed as scenarios in the Cucumber given/when/then style:
given a web site subplot.liw.fi when I retrieve the site front page then it contains "Subplot" and it contains "acceptance criteria"
When all stakeholders really need to understand acceptance criteria
Subplot is a set of tools for specifying, documenting, and implementing automated acceptance tests for systems and software. Subplot tools aim to produce a human-readable document of acceptance criteria and a program that automatically tests a system against those criteria. The goal is for every stakeholder in a project to understand the project’s acceptance criteria and how they’re verified.
See https://subplot.liw.fi/ for the home page.
Subplot is written using the Rust programming language, so the usual workflow for Rust applies.

You probably need to install Rust using rustup: the version packaged in a Linux distribution is likely too old. When you install Rust, ensure you have the following installed:
To run the whole test suite, including testing all examples and
Subplot self tests, run
./check at the root of the source tree.
You'll need to install some build dependencies. On a system running Debian or a derivative of it:
Additionally, any packages reported by running the following command:
