Merge pull request #4256 from niranjan-nilakantan:niranjan-nilakantan/issue4255 PiperOrigin-RevId: 536480185 Change-Id: I9bdd65cd18253703abf3cc92b3f354c1f798aa3e
GoogleTest now follows the Abseil Live at Head philosophy. We recommend updating to the latest commit in the
main branch as often as possible. We do publish occasional semantic versions, tagged with
Our documentation is now live on GitHub Pages at https://google.github.io/googletest/. We recommend browsing the documentation on GitHub Pages rather than directly in the repository.
Release 1.13.0 is now available.
The 1.13.x branch requires at least C++14.
We use Google's internal systems for continuous integration.
GitHub Actions were added for the convenience of open source contributors. They are exclusively maintained by the open source community and not used by the GoogleTest team.
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.
More information about building GoogleTest can be found at googletest/README.md.
|xUnit test framework||Googletest is based on the|
|: : xUnit :|
|: : testing framework, a popular architecture for :|
|: : unit testing :|
|Test discovery||Googletest automatically discovers and runs|
|: : your tests, eliminating the need to manually :|
|: : register your tests :|
|Rich set of assertions||Googletest provides a variety of assertions,|
|: : such as equality, inequality, exceptions, and :|
|: : more, making it easy to test your code :|
|User-defined assertions||You can define your own assertions with|
|: : Googletest, making it simple to write tests :|

|Death tests||Googletest supports death tests, which verify|
|: : that your code exits in a certain way, making :|

|Fatal and non-fatal failures||You can specify whether a test failure should|

|Value-parameterized tests||Googletest supports value-parameterized|
|: : tests, which run multiple times with :|
|: : different input values, making it useful for :|
|: : testing functions that take different inputs :|
|Type-parameterized tests||Googletest also supports type-parameterized|

In addition to many internal projects at Google, GoogleTest 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.
GoogleTest UI is a 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. GoogleTest UI is written in C#.
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 GoogleTest in a tree view and run/debug your tests.
C++ TestMate is a VS Code extension allowing to view GoogleTest in a tree view and run/debug your tests.
Cornichon is a small Gherkin DSL parser that generates stub code for GoogleTest.
