Re: Unit testing


Both of those look interesting but they also both require me figuring
out the accesibility api stuff. In general, this is something that I
could see using in the future.

Currently I was mostly thinking of firing signals which would of
course tie the tests to the gtkmm api, but it seems quite a bit faster
to implement.

It really seems to work. dogtail and LDTP are the two competing projects
that do this. dogtail seems most straightforward to me, but I have only
looked at them superficially.

Sooner or later, I want to make dogtail scripts to test my Glom
