Dear Spec Flow team,
This is a very old topic regarding Spec Flow + Excel Plug In. We are use to be a SpecFlow + paid customer to use the Excel Plug in tool. We have built hundreds if not thousands testing cases using SpecFlow Excel plug in. And we still believe this is the 'best' tool that everybody, I mean everybody including both business person and developers, can understand the business scenario, modify it easily, and creating extremely sophisticated business test cases.
Unfortunately SpecFlow decided to not upgrading the Excel Plug couple years ago (https://support.specflow.org/hc/en-us/community/posts/360012819997-Support-for-SpecFlow-Excel-in-current-SpecFlow-versions). And we have waited patiently for an updated version or placing tool. We closely followed up with Spec Flow's development, and even participated in recent SpecFlow ExcelData seminar. Unfortunately, we don't think the SpecFlow ExcelData feature is an equivalent replacement for SpecFlow Excel PlugIn.
I fully understand that SpecFlow has its own priority, and supporting Excel PlugIn may not be one of them. However, I do wonder whether SpecFlow can make it open-source, or provide a community edition, or potentially grant Enuit a limited source code license so that we can see whether we can ported the tool and make it compatible with SpecFlow's latest releases.
Your attention will be greatly appreciated.
