Testing framework for infrastructure software
Kyua is a testing framework for infrastructure software, originally designed to equip BSD-based operating systems with a test suite. This means that Kyua is lightweight and simple, and that Kyua integrates well with various build systems and continuous integration frameworks.
Kyua features an expressive test suite definition language, a safe runtime engine for test suites and a powerful report generation engine.
Kyua is for both developers and users, from the developer applying a simple fix to a library to the system administrator deploying a new release on a production machine.
Kyua is able to execute test programs written with a plethora of testing libraries and languages. The library of choice is ATF, for which Kyua was originally designed, but simple, framework-less test programs and TAP-compliant test programs can also be executed through Kyua.
