A dead-simple, yet extensible, C and C++ unit testing framework.
Most test frameworks for C require a lot of boilerplate code to set up tests and test suites -- you need to create a main, then register new test suites, then register the tests within these suites, and finally call the right functions.
This gives the user great control, at the unfortunate cost of simplicity.
Criterion follows the KISS principle, while keeping the control the user would have with other frameworks:
|Ubuntu (>=21.04) / Debian (>=11)
apt-get install libcriterion-dev
emerge -a dev-libs/criterion
|Arch Linux (AUR)
pacaur -S criterion
brew install criterion
nix-env -iA nixpkgs.criterion
pkg install criterion
If you'd like to see Criterion included in your favorite distribution, please reach out to their package maintainers team.
Binary releases for Linux x86_64 are available on the release page.
If you have a different platform, you can still build the library from source.
Sample tests can be found in the sample directory.
