Unit Tests

QGroundControl (QGC) contains a set of unit tests that must pass before a pull request will be accepted. The addition of new complex subsystems to QGC should include a corresponding new unit test to test it.

The full list of unit tests can be found in

To run unit tests:

  1. Build in debug mode with UNITTEST_BUILD definition.
  2. Copy the deploy/ script in the debug directory
  3. Run all unit tests from the command line using the --unittest command line option. For Linux this is done as shown: --unittest
  4. Run individual unit tests by specifying the test name as well: --unittest:RadioConfigTest. For Linux this is done as shown: --unittest:RadioConfigTest
