Cucumber vs Selenium: What are the differences?
Developers describe Cucumber as "Simple, human collaboration". Cucumber is a tool that supports Behaviour-Driven Development (BDD) - a software development process that aims to enhance software quality and reduce maintenance costs. On the other hand, Selenium is detailed as "Web Browser Automation". Selenium automates browsers. That's it! What you do with that power is entirely up to you. Primarily, it is for automating web applications for testing purposes, but is certainly not limited to just that. Boring web-based administration tasks can (and should!) also be automated as well.
Cucumber and Selenium are primarily classified as "Testing Frameworks" and "Browser Testing" tools respectively.
Cucumber and Selenium are both open source tools. Selenium with 14.9K GitHub stars and 4.97K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Cucumber with 2.54K GitHub stars and 501 GitHub forks.
According to the StackShare community, Selenium has a broader approval, being mentioned in 777 company stacks & 443 developers stacks; compared to Cucumber, which is listed in 58 company stacks and 39 developer stacks.
