Build and install Google Test
Download the latest (1.7.0) from Google Code (Q: where is it going to live, once GCode shuts down?)
Then follow the primer, but more to the point, the README (YMMV) Having installed CLion and cmake, this is how I built gtest:
brew install cmake cd gtest-1.7.0 mkdir build cd build cmake -Dgtest_build_samples=ON -Dgtest_build_tests=ON /Users/marco/Downloads/gtest-1.7.0 make make test ./sample1_unittest
NOTE you will need to install
cmake on your Mac, I used CLion distribution in:
Once this all works, you can "install" it, by putting the generated
.a files in a place that
can be easily found.
On a Mac OSX, I used the following:
sudo mkdir /usr/local/Cellar/gtest sudo cp gtest-1.7.0/build/libgtest.a /usr/local/Cellar/gtest/ sudo ln -snf /usr/local/Cellar/gtest/libgtest.a /usr/local/lib/libgtest.a sudo cp -r gtest-1.7.0/include /usr/local/Cellar/gtest/ ln -snf ../Cellar/gtest/include/gtest /usr/local/include/gtest
You will then need to make it so that
gcc can find the includes and the libgtest - for example
in CMakeLists.txt add the following:
include_directories(/usr/local/include) target_link_libraries(test_inet /usr/local/lib/libgtest.a)
It currently appears that CLion gets mightly confused and can't find the includes, but it all compiles and run just fine (see CPP2932).
