Prepare for running tests of ImpactX by building ImpactX from source.

In order to run our tests, you need to have a few Python packages installed:

python3 -m pip install -U pip setuptools wheel pytest
python3 -m pip install -r examples/requirements.txt


You can run all our tests with:

ctest --test-dir build --output-on-failure

Further Options

  • help: ctest --test-dir build --help

  • list all tests: ctest --test-dir build -N

  • only run tests that have “FODO” in their name: ctest --test-dir build -R FODO
