pest

[brief]

pest is macro free otherwise simplistic c++17 unit testing

antibloat & turbo simplistic header only cxx unit testing & benchmarking thingy.

implemented this because a hackable solution for unit testing was needed not causing excessive compile times once you have more than one assertion.

pest includes a xoshiro prng and a zipfian distribution helper class:

requires

examples

unit tests ( using emptyspace::pest )

source file ...

#include <pest/pest.hxx>

namespace {

emptyspace::pest::suite basic( "pest self test", []( auto& test ) {
  using namespace emptyspace::pest;

  test( "true equal_to true", []( auto& expect ) {
    expect( true, equal_to( true ) );
  } );

  test( "vector<> equal_to initializer_list<>", []( auto& expect ) {
    auto const inputs = std::vector<int>{ 3, 4, 7 };
    expect( inputs, equal_to( { 3, 4, 7 } ) );
  } );
} );

} // namespace

int main() {
  basic( std::clog );
  return 0;
}

... and example output

# assuming the example from above is in `example.cxx`
pest $ clang++10 -I. -std=c++17 example.cxx -o ex
pest $ ./ex
[suite <pest self test> | true equal_to true]
[suite <pest self test> | vector<> equal_to initializer_list<>]
[suite <pest self test> | summary]
  total assertions failed = 0
  total assertions pass = 2
  total assertions skipped = 0
  total uncaught exceptions = 0
  total tests = 2

benchmarks ( using emptyspace::pnch )

suppose we want to benchmark the strftime function ...

#include <pest/pnch.hxx>
#include <ctime>

int main() {
  emptyspace::pnch::config cfg;
  std::size_t n = 0;
  char buffer[128];
  cfg.run(
         "strftime",
         [&]() {
           auto stamp1 = std::chrono::system_clock::now();
           auto epoch = std::chrono::system_clock::to_time_t( stamp1 );
           auto gmtime = std::gmtime( &epoch );
           n += std::strftime( buffer, 64, "%Y.%m.%d:%T.", gmtime );
         } )
      .touch( n )
      .report_to( std::cerr );
      
  return n > 0;
}

... could lead to the following output

[benchmark | strftime]
  stats/total = 2.27702e+09
  stats/average = 990.007
  stats/stddev = 7.18419

development & packaging

build2 is used for life cycle management. for using without build2 just drop the header into your project.

cloning the repository and running the test driver test/unit/driver.cxx

$ git clone https://github.com/stackless-goto/pest
$ cd pest
$ bdep init -C @clang10 cc config.cxx=clang++10
$ bdep test
test tests/unit/testscript{testscript}@../pest-clang10/pest/tests/unit/ ../pest-clang10/pest/tests/unit/exe{driver}
