dtest ~master

Utility to generate main file for unit test registration and running with unit-threaded

To use this package, run the following command in your project's root directory:

Manual usage
Put the following dependency into your project's dependences section:


###Deprecated: No longer needed with the latest version of unit-threaded

Utility using unit-threaded to run all unit tests in a list of directories. This was written because, although unit-threaded can scan and run all unit tests in a given set of modules, those modules need to be manually specified, which can be tedious. The reason for that is that D packages are just directories and the compiler can't read the filesystem at compile-time, so this executable does that to write a D source file which it runs using rdmd.

This means rdmd must be installed for this program to work.

Usage: dtest [options] [test1] [test2]...
    -h/--help: help
    -t/--test: add a test directory to the list. If no test directories
    are specified, then the default list is ["tests"]
    -u/--unit_threaded: directory location of the unit_threaded library
    -d/--debug: print debug information
    -I: extra include directories to specify to rdmd
    -f/--file: file name to write to
    -s/--single: run the tests in one thread
    -d/--debug: print debugging information from the tests
    -l/--list: list all tests but do not run them
    -n/--nodub: do not run dub fetch to get unit-threaded
    -c/--compiler: Set the compiler (default is dmd)

This will run all unit tests encountered in the given directories
(see -t option). It does this by scanning them and writing a D source
file that imports all of them then running that source file with rdmd.
By default the source file is a randomly named temporary file but that
can be changed with the -f option. If the unit_threaded library is not
in the default search paths then it can be specified with the -u option.
If the --nodub option is not used, `dtest` defaults to using dub
to fetch unit-threaded so that the library need not be downloaded nor
have its location specified manually.
If any command-line arguments exist they will be forwarded to the
unit_threaded library and used as the names of the tests to run. If
none are specified, all of them are run.

To run all tests located in a directory called "tests":


To run all tests in dir1, dir2, etc.:

dtest -t dir1 -t dir2...

To run tests foo and bar in directory mydir:

dtest -t mydir mydir.foo mydir.bar

To run tests foo and bar in directory mydir in a single thread:

dtest -t mydir -s mydir.foo mydir.bar
