Installing in iOS (Xcode 4)

To use GHUnit in your project, you’ll need to create and configure a test target.

Create Test Target

  • You’ll want to create a separate Test target. Select the project file for your app in the Project Navigator. From there, select the Add Target + symbol at the bottom of the window.

Add Target

  • Select iOS, Application, Window-based Application. Select Next.

Select Application

  • Name it Tests or something similar. Select Finish.

Name it

Configure the Test Target

  • Download and copy the GHUnitIOS.framework to your project. Command click on Frameworks in the Project Navigator and select: Add Files to “MyTestable”. (This should automatically add GHUnitIOS.framework to your Link Binary With Libraries Build Phase for the Tests target.)

Add Framework

  • Select GHUnitIOS.framework and make sure the only the Tests target is selected.

Add Framework Dialog

  • We want to enable use of Objective-C categories, which isn’t enabled for static libraries by default. In the Tests target, Build Settings, under Other Linker Flags, add -ObjC and -all_load.

Other Linker Flags

  • Select and delete the files from the existing Tests folder. Leave the Supporting Files folder. GHUnit will provide the application delegate below.

Remove Test Files

  • In Tests folder, in Supporting Files, main.m, replace the last argument of UIApplicationMain with @"GHUnitIOSAppDelegate". Remove the #import “AppDelegate.h” if present.

Main Method

  • Select the Tests target, iPhone Simulator configuration:

Select Target

  • Hit Run, and you’ll hopefully see the test application running (but without any tests).

Run It

Now you can create and run tests!
