A testing tool for command line utilities.

Project description

This is nihtest, a testing tool for command line utilities.

Tests are run in a sandbox directory to guarantee a clean separation of the test.

It checks that exit code, standard and error outputs are as expected and compares the files in the sandbox after the run with the expected results.

It is written in Python.

It is documented in man pages: nihtest(1), the config file format nihtest.conf(5) and the test case language nihtest-case(5).

The man pages are included in the source distribution tarball in the manpages directory in man (Linux-like), mdoc (BSD), and HTML format. When you're packaging nihtest, please make sure they are installed in an appropriate location.
