C, C++ and shell libraries to write ATF-compliant test programs
Maintained by: search for ports maintained by this maintainer
Port Added: 29 Oct 2012 22:58:54

The Automated Testing Framework (ATF) is a collection of libraries to
implement test programs in a variety of languages.  At the moment, ATF
offers C, C++ and POSIX shell bindings with which to implement tests.
These bindings all offer a similar set of functionality and any test
program written with them exposes a consistent user interface.

ATF-based test programs rely on a separate runtime engine to execute them.
The runtime engine is in charge of isolating the test programs from the
rest of the system to ensure that their results are deterministic and that
they cannot affect the running system.  The runtime engine is also
responsible for gathering the results of all tests and composing reports.
The current runtime of choice is Kyua.

This port is required by:

for Build for Libraries for Run * - deleted ports are only shown under the This port is required by section. It was harder to do for the Required section. Perhaps later...

To install the port: cd /usr/ports/devel/atf/ && make install clean
To add the package: pkg install devel/atf

Configuration Options
===> The following configuration options are available for atf-0.20_1:
     DOCS=on: Build and/or install documentation
     TEST=on: Build and/or run tests
===> Use 'make config' to modify these settings

Enable the TEST option by default in atf-based ports.

Get ports that use the atf libraries to install their tests by default.
This is to showcase the potential of getting the tests installed on a
live system and will also simplify the process of running them periodically
out of /usr/local/tests/.

Packages confirmed to build with this option enabled.

Change ports that use the ATF libraries to depend on devel/atf.

As part of this, make it possible to install devel/atf independently of
the presence of ATF in the base system.  This is so that we can turn the
ATF libraries in base into private libraries.

Note that this should have no effect on prebuilt binary packages because
these changes only apply when the TEST option is selected, and this option
is not yet the default.

Update devel/atf to 0.20 and modernize the port.

This includes:
- Taking ownership of the package (with ack from previous maintainer).
- Forcing all file registrations into pkg-plist.
- Fully dropping support for the deprecated tools.
- Adding support for the TEST option.
- Properly using libtool via USES.
- Not using OSREVISION to determine whether atf can or can't be installed.
- Avoiding hacks by just using MAKE_FLAGS.

... which basically means this really is a full rewrite of the port.

Stop handling the 'tests' directory.

We now rely on BSD.local.dist from ports to create /usr/local/tests.
Bump the port revision to 2.

The Automated Testing Framework (ATF) is a collection of libraries and
utilities designed to ease unattended application testing in the hands of
developers and end users of a specific piece of software.

As regards developers, ATF provides the necessary means to easily create
test suites composed of multiple test programs, which in turn are a
collection of test cases.  It also attempts to simplify the debugging of
problems when these test cases detect an error by providing as much
information as possible about the failure.

As regards users, it simplifies the process of running the test suites and,
in special, encourages end users to run them often: they do not need to
have source trees around nor any other development tools installed to be
able to certify that a given piece of software works on their machine as

Note that ATF is included in the base system since FreeBSD 10, so this
port does not need to be installed on FreeBSD 10.
