qautotestgenerator is a tool to generate stub tests for a C++ class. When writing tests for new code one of the more annoying parts is getting the initial file up and running. qautotestgenerator helps by automatically creating quite a bit of stub code after which you just go through the file filling it in with the actual tests.
Some features include:
- Creates a stub tests for each non private function in the class.
- Creates a subclass for the class to expose any protected functions for testing.
- Creates a basic sanity test that just calls each function.
- Creates a _data() function for each test.
- Populates the _data() functions with columns for each argument and the return value.
- Adds QFETCH stub code that matches the generated _data function as a place to start from.
- Adds the four init and cleanup functions with documentation so you don't have to look up what does what.
- Adds signal spys to each tests if the class contains any signals.

git submodule init
git submodule update
In the example directory is a file example.h that contains a little class. Execute the following to generate and build a test.
./qautotestgenerator example/example.h Example > example/tst_example.cpp
