Could you clarify what's the problem with readability? I know I'm
totally biased, I'm the lead developer of this framework, but I
consider for example test cases in the quick start guide [1] pretty
easy to read. In the latest release we also made creating very
readable behavior-driven development (BDD) style tests easier. The
best publicly available example about this approach is in the user
guide [2] but I plan to write a blog post about this subject at some
point. Another nice feature in the latest release is the ability to
use plain text for writing tests [3] in addition to earlier supported
