TAP

A Swift package for the Test Anything Protocol (v13).

Requirements

  • Swift 5.3+

Usage

You can use TAP as an alternative to XCTest in executable targets or as a custom reporter in test targets.

Running Tests Directly

import TAP

try TAP.run([
    test(1 + 1 == 2), // passes
    test(true == false) // fails
])
// Prints:
/*
TAP version 13
1..2
ok 1
not ok 2
  ---
  file: path/to/File.swift
  line: 5
  ...
  
*/

Custom Test Reporting

Linux

Swift Package Manager on Linux uses swift-corelibs-xctest, which provides an XCTMain that

Run the following command to (re)-generate your main test file:

$ swift test --generate-linuxmain

Open the resulting LinuxMain.swift file, add an import statement for the TAP module and register XCTestTAPObserver as a test observer. In Swift 5.4 and later, you can update the XCTMain invocation to include an observers parameter with an instance of XCTestTAPObserver.

#if os(Linux)
import XCTest
import TAP
@testable import TAPTests

#if swift(>=5.4)
XCTMain([
    testCase(TAPTests.allTests)
],
arguments: CommandLine.arguments,
observers: [
    XCTestTAPObserver()
])
#else
XCTestObservationCenter.shared.addTestObserver(XCTestTAPObserver())
XCTMain([
    testCase(TAPTests.allTests)
])
#endif

When you run the swift test command, your test suite will be reported in TAP format.

macOS and iOS

As of Swift 5.3, it's not possible to configure a custom reporter when running tests directly through Swift Package Manager. However, Xcode provides a mechanism for loading custom reports via XCTestObservationCenter.

Create a new file named TestObservation.swift and add it to your test bundle. Import the TAP module, declare a subclass of NSObject named TestObservation, and override its designated initializer to register XCTestTAPObserver with the shared XCTestObservationCenter.

import TAP

final class TestObservation: NSObject {
    override init() {
        XCTestObservationCenter.shared.addTestObserver(XCTestTAPObserver())
    }
}

Add an entry to your test target's Info.plist file designating the fully-qualified name of this class as the NSPrincipalClass.

    <key>NSPrincipalClass</key>
    <string>YourTestTarget.TestObservation</string>

When you run your test bundle, Xcode will instantiate the principle class first, ensuring that your test observers are registered in time to report the progress of all test runs.

Installation

Swift Package Manager

Add the TAP package to your target dependencies in Package.swift:

import PackageDescription

let package = Package(
  name: "YourProject",
  dependencies: [
    .package(
        url: "https://github.com/SwiftDocOrg/TAP",
        from: "0.2.0"
    ),
  ]
)

Add TAP as a dependency to your test target(s):

targets: [
.testTarget(
    name: "YourTestTarget",
    dependencies: ["TAP"]),
