record mock hardware devices for bug reports and regression tests



Projects that use it

  • The upower test suite mocks batteries, ACs, and UPS devices.
  • The gvfs test suite contains ioctl records from a digicam and a phone music player and uses them for regression-testing the PtP and MTP backends.
  • Ubuntu's autopkgtest for shotwell uses umockdev to verify gphoto camera photo import into Shotwell with autopilot to drive the UI.


umockdev is pretty much demand driven. When you want to do something new in that area that umockdev doesn't support yet, please check/file a bug. The issue tracker shows the current requests/ongoing work. Also, please feel free to grab me on IRC (pitti on freenode) or send me an email.
