Running Tests for WebKitGTK+


Ensure that you've followed all dependency installation instructions. If you try to run tests without installing and updating both system and JHBuild (update-webkitgtk-libs) dependencies, it's likely that not all tests will pass.

Running the Tests

Simply run the run-webkit-tests script from the Tools directory. run-webkit-tests also supports the --debug argument to run the tests with the debug build of WebKitGTK+.

./Tools/Scripts/run-webkit-tests --gtk [--debug]

If you wish to run a single test you can do:

./Tools/Scripts/run-webkit-tests --gtk fast/forms/plaintext-mode-1.html

Unit Tests

The GTK+ port includes unit tests. To run the suite:

./Tools/Scripts/run-gtk-tests [--debug] [--verbose]

If you wish to run a single test you can do:

./Tools/Scripts/run-gtk-tests WebKitBuild/Release/Programs/WebKit2APITests/TestContextMenu

Pixel Tests

WebKitGTK+ supports running pixel tests, but they are not enabled by default. To run them simply pass the -p argument to run-webkit-tests:

./Tools/Scripts/run-webkit-tests --gtk -p

Running Tests in GDB

For debugging a test it may be useful to run it directly in DumpRenderTree (with gdb):

WebKitBuild/Debug/Programs/DumpRenderTree -v LayoutTests/fast/forms/plaintext-mode-1.html

Common Problems

chroot derived problems

There are some instructions to avoid common problems derived from having a chroot based working environment.
