The following instructions describe how to get started using the Org-mode test framework.

1) Install the ERT and jump.el testing dependencies which are included as git submodules in the org-mode repository. To do so run the following git submodule commands from inside the base of the Org-mode directory (or just execute the following code block). #+begin_src sh cd .. git submodule init git submodule update #+end_src

2) Load the org-test.el file #+begin_src emacs-lisp (load-file "org-test.el") #+end_src

3) The org-test-jump command is now bound to M-C-j in all emacs-lisp files. Call this command from any file in the lisp/= directory of the org-mode repository to jump to the related test file in the =testing/ directory. Call this functions with a prefix argument, and the corresponding test file will be stubbed out if it doesn't already exist.

4) Review the ERT documentation, to do this run makeinfo in the testing/ert directory, #+begin_src sh cd ert makeinfo ert.texinfo #+end_src then browse the resulting info file.

5) A number of org-mode-specific functions and macros are provided in org-test.el see the subsection of that file. Some of these functions make use of example org-mode files located in the examples/ directory.

    6) Functions for loading and running the Org-mode tests are provided in the [[file:org-test.el::%3B%3B%3B%20Load%20and%20Run%20tests][;;; Load and Run Tests]] subsection, the most important of which are
  • org-test-load which loads the entire Org-mode test suite
  • org-test-current-defun which runs all tests for the current
  • function around point (should be called from inside of an Org-mode elisp file)
  • org-test-run-all-tests which runs the entire Org-mode test suite
  • also note that the ert command can also be used to run tests
