Some tests require that dynamic libraries be built before running the tests. You can do so with:
dart run test/setup.dart
Run the tests with:
Some tests verify that the generated Dart FFI bindings match a golden file.
For example, the test
test/native_test/native_test.dart works by:
Loading the dynamic library for
test/native_test/native_test.c (which was generated by
dart run test/setup.dart).
Generating binding files for that dynamic library in the
Comparing the golden file (i.e.
test/native_test/native_test_bindings.dart) to the generated file and generating a test failure if they do not match.
Using the golden bindings to excercise the dynamic library.
If you modify any source for a dynamic library (e.g. any
.m files), then you should run:
dart run test/setup.dart # Rebuild the dynamic libraries. dart run test/regen.dart # Rebuild the golden FFI bindings.
If you modify any code that changes how FFI bindings are generated, then you should run:
dart run test/regen.dart # Rebuild the golden FFI bindings.
A conservative way to run tests is with:
dart run test/setup.dart && dart run test/regen.dart && dart test
Note: you should verify that the changes to the golden bindings are reasonable with
