Google Test (also known as gtest) is a unit testing library for the C++ programming language, released under the BSD 3-clause license and based on the xUnit architecture. Google Test is able to be compiled for a variety of POSIX and Microsoft Windows platforms, allowing unit-testing of C sources as well as C++ with minimal source modification.
Besides being developed and used at Google, many other projects implement Google Test as well:
Google Test UI is a test runner that runs test binary, allows to track progress via a progress bar, and displays a list of test failures. Google Test UI is written in C#. Additionally, a feature-complete Visual Studio extension exists with Google Test Adapter.
