How do I setup gTest, so that I can link aganist the library? I will code in vim, so I just want to install the libraries, unlike the XCode setup. Goal is to be able to link a project against the library by setting
$ wget https://github.com/google/googletest/archive/release-1.8.0.zip
Or get it by hand. I guess I won't manitain this little How-to, so if you stumbled upon it and the links are outdated, feel free to edit it.
$ unzip gtest-1.8.0.zip $ cd gtest-1.8.0 $ ./configure $ make
$ sudo cp -a include/gtest /usr/include $ sudo cp -a lib/.libs/* /usr/lib/
gTestframework is now ready to use. Just don't forget to link your project against the library by setting
-lgtest as linker flag and optionally, if you did not write your own test mainroutine, the explicit
From here on you might want to go to Googles documentation about the framework to learn how it works. Happy coding!
