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.
See the GoogleTest User's Guide for documentation. We recommend starting with the GoogleTest Primer.
More information about building GoogleTest can be found at googletest/README.md.
GoogleTest follows Google's Foundational C++ Support Policy. See this table for a list of currently supported versions of compilers, platforms, and build tools.
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 TAP Listener is an event listener for GoogleTest that implements the TAP protocol for test result output. If your test runner understands TAP, you may find it useful.
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.
