Also, why did Rob stop developing it? Is it because UIAutomation came out? I did a Google of UIAutomation vs iCuke and found:
I like the way the Apple library is connected to the running application. It
definitely feels "first-class" compared to iCuke's implementation
5. Let's hope that we can bring the two
approaches together to have one fantastic automation tool.
What is the mission of iCuke now that UIAutomation is out?
I propose that we aim to make iCuke give the Cucumber experience, but use all the great things that UIAutomation offers.
A local guru was using UIAutomation but converted to (or is going to convert to) iCuke. The biggest drawback of UIAutomation is that we can't get it to run from the command-line. It's possible in theory, but he reports that when he does what he thinks is correct, the automation scripts don't load or run.
That makes it difficult for a CI server.
But I also agree that UIAutomation "is not cucumber". The script you write for it is not understandable by lay people.
