I'm sending this email to request some comments on a C++11 library I've
written based on Test::More. I hope this is on topic for this mailing
list. If there are better places for this, could you direct me to them?
cipra is a header-only C++11 testing library based on Test::More. I
know there are several active users of it, by email correspondence, so
some of you may have heard of it before. It's a TAP13 provider and can
be used with any TAP harness. When I was designing it, I tried to map
the semantics of Test::More to C++11, without a lot of the baggage of
other libraries, like CppUnit or Boost.Test.
You can find cipra here <http://cipra.sourceforge.net/>.
A year and a half after the initial design, I think I can do better.
I'm planning a new version that even more closely models Test::More and
that adds new features. I want to make sure there are not useful things
that I'm missing, though. As such, I'd love if anyone here who also
uses C++11 and is looking for a testing library could play around with
the cipra and see if there are any things you miss from Test::More, or
any other limitations you run into. Some examples of the comments I'm
looking for (and either have myself or have gotten by other users) are:
* Add YAMLish output to give better debug information.
* Implement a TAP Harness in C++, so we don't need Perl as a
dependency just for the "prove" command.
* Add subtests, and make sure they are thread-safe.
Thanks in advance for any comments you have. I really appreciate any
