tinytest 1.2.4 is on CRAN

Version 1.2.4 of tinytest arrived on CRAN at 17 December 2020.

This release has a couple of new features.

  • You can specify the library location in test_package with lib.loc.
  • New function expect_inherits() to check the class of an object - Printing of file exit message is now shorter and on same line as
    test report.
  • Duration per file is now reported, total duration is stored.
  • New function expect_inherits()

For all features and fixes, see NEWS.

I owe a big thanks to Dirk Eddelbuettel and Sebastian Meyer for numerous suggestions and feedback while developing the new features.

Test durations are printed in two colors: anything measured in ms is printed light blue, test durations lasting longer than that are printed in dark blue. Here's an example testing RcppArmadillo on five cores.


Currently 127 packages are suggesting tinytest.
