Googletest - Google Testing and Mocking Framework
Release 1.10.x is now available.
This repository is a merger of the formerly separate GoogleTest and GoogleMock projects. These were so closely related that it makes sense to maintain and release them together.
The information for GoogleTest is available in the GoogleTest Primer documentation.
GoogleMock is an extension to GoogleTest for writing and using C++ mock classes. See the separate GoogleMock documentation.
More detailed documentation for googletest is in its interior googletest/README.md file.
GoogleTest has been used on a variety of platforms:
In addition to many internal projects at Google, GoogleTest is also used by the following notable projects:
GTest Runner is a Qt5 based automated test-runner and Graphical User Interface with powerful features for Windows and Linux platforms.
GoogleTest UI is a test runner that runs your test binary, allows you to track its progress via a progress bar, and displays a list of test failures. Clicking on one shows failure text. Google Test UI is written in C#.
gtest-parallel is a test runner that runs tests from your binary in parallel to provide significant speed-up.
GoogleTest Adapter is a VS Code extension allowing to view GoogleTest in a tree view, and run/debug your tests.
C++ TestMate is a VS Code extension allowing to view GoogleTest in a tree view, and run/debug your tests.
Cornichon is a small Gherkin DSL parser that generates stub code for GoogleTest.
GoogleTest is designed to have fairly minimal requirements to build and use with your projects, but there are some. If you notice any problems on your platform, please file an issue on the GoogleTest GitHub Issue Tracker.
Patches for fixing them are welcome!
These are the base requirements to build and use GoogleTest from a source package:
