the 1.8.x is the last release that works with pre-C++11 compilers. The 1.8.x will not accept any requests for any new features and any bugfix requests will only be accepted if proven “critical”
On-going work to improve/cleanup/pay technical debt. When this work is completed there will be a 1.9.x tagged release
Post 1.9.x googletest will follow Abseil Live at Head philosophy
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.
Please subscribe to the mailing list at email@example.com for questions, discussions, and development.
The information for Google Test is available in the Google Test Primer documentation.
Google Mock is an extension to Google Test for writing and using C++ mock classes. See the separate Google Mock documentation.
More detailed documentation for googletest is in its interior googletest/README.md file.
Google test has been used on a variety of platforms:
In addition to many internal projects at Google, Google Test 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.
Google Test UI is 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 TAP Listener is an event listener for Google Test that implements the TAP protocol for test result output. If your test runner understands TAP, you may find it useful.
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 Google Tests in a tree view, and run/debug your tests.
Google Test 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 notify firstname.lastname@example.org. Patches for fixing them are welcome!
These are the base requirements to build and use Google Test from a source package:
Bazel or CMake. NOTE: Bazel is the build system that googletest is using internally and tests against. CMake is community-supported.
a C++11-standard-compliant compiler
