dessert :cake:

  • Dessert is a lightweight unit-testing framework (C++11).
  • Dessert is smart. LHS, RHS values are automatically outstreamed when tests fail.
  • Dessert is tiny. 100 LOC. Barebone suite is only a single dessert() macro.
  • Dessert is easy to integrate. Single file, header-only.
  • Dessert is cross-platform. No extra dependencies.
  • Dessert is handy. Optional breakpoints and interruption on selected tests.
  • Dessert is zlib/libpng licensed.

Quick tutorial

Replace any assert() with dessert(). That's it. Piece of cake :cake:

#include "dessert.hpp"

int main() {
    int a = 1, b = 2;
    dessert( a < b );
    dessert( a > b );
}

Possible output

[ OK ]  Test 1 at tiny.cc:5 (0.000000 s)
[FAIL]  Test 2 at tiny.cc:6 (0.000000 s)
        a > b
        1 > 2
        (unexpected)

[FAIL]  Failure! 1/2 tests failed :(
        Breakpoints: 0 (*)
        Total time: 0.001000 seconds.

API

  • dessert(expr) << optional << messages << here macro expects given expression to be true.
    • if test passes, some info is printed, then expression returns true
    • if test fails, lhs, rhs (and optional messages) are printed, then expression returns false
  • desserts(title...) { /*code...*/ } suite of dessert tests.
    • if before main() is found on title, then suite is executed before main() is run.
    • else suite is executed after main() is run (default behaviour).
  • throws( /*code...*/ ) macro expects [code...] to throw any exception.
    • returns true if code throws any exception, else returns false

Breakpoints

  • Invoke debugger at runtime by setting BREAKON environment variable to the specified test number.

Sample usage

~/dessert>
~/dessert> cat sample.cc

#include <string>
#include "dessert.hpp"

desserts() {
    int a = 1, b = 2;
    dessert( a < b );
    dessert( a > b );
}

desserts() {
    dessert( 1 < 2 ) << "test shall pass; comment built on " << __TIME__ << " " << __DATE__;
    dessert( 1 > 2 ) << "test shall fail; phone Aristotle (+30 " << 23760 << ") if this test fails";
}

desserts( "Tests before main()" ) {
    if( dessert( 1 < 2 ) ) {
        // ok
    } else {
        // handle error here
    }
}

desserts( "Tests after main()" ) {
    dessert( throws(
            std::string hello = "world";
            hello.at(10) = 'c';
    ) ) << "test shall pass, exception thrown";

    dessert( throws(
            std::string hello = "world";
            hello += hello;
    ) ) << "test shall fail, no exception thrown";
}

int main()
{}
