rake-tester

http://www.github.com/karottenreibe/rake-tester

An extension of the rake-compiler that allows for automatic compilation of C test suites, e.g. using cmockery.

Features/Limitations

  • Automatically compiles and executes test suites of arbitrary C testing frameworks
  • Can batch-execute all suites or selectively run a single suite
  • Can only compile the tests for your current platform
  • Thus, no cross compilation of the tests
  • Support for running the tests with valgrind or gdb

Installation

gem install rake-tester

Usage

In the Rakefile:

require 'rake/extensiontask'
require 'rake/extensiontesttask'

Rake::ExtensionTask.new(...) do |ext|
    # ... confgure as normal

    ext.test_files          = FileList['test/c/*']
    ext.test_includes       << '/usr/include/frood_stuff'
    ext.test_libraries      << 'zaphods_heads'
    ext.test_lib_folders    << '/usr/lib/floopy'
end

Write your tests.

To test everything:

$ rake test:c

To test one extension:

$ rake test:c:extension

To execute one test suite:

$ rake test:c:extension[test_feature]

To use valgrind:

$ rake test:valgrind:extension[test_feature]

To use gdb:

$ rake test:gdb:extension[test_feature]

Examples

Check out Joker, which user rake-tester in combination with cmockery!
