Responsible in Unity
Supported Unity versions
Responsible aims to support all current LTS Version:
- 2021, 2022 LTS: Fully supported. CI is periodically updated to run on the latest releases, but might lag behind a bit. Please report any issues you find.
- No TECH stream releases are tested, but feel free to report issues you find, and they might get fixed.
- 2019, 2020: Worked in the past, official support dropped in 4.5.0
Responsible was originally written for Unity, and only later ported to .NET standard, so there are many things already set up for getting started.
To start using Responsible, you'll need to
- install the package,
- reference the
Responsibleassembly from your test assemblies, and
- set up your tests using
OpenUMP is the recommended way of installing Responsible in Unity.
After setting up OpenUMP, you can add Responsible to your project by running
openupm add com.beatwaves.responsible
Direct Unity Package Manager Reference
Select the version you want to use from
and add the following to
X.Y.Z with the version you want to use.
Without the Package Manager
If you can't or don't want to use the package manager, you can also directly incorporate the com.beatwaves.responsible directory into your project. This could be done manually, or e.g. with a symlink and git submodule.
Referencing the Assembly
With either installation option, you'll end up with an assembly called
UNITY_INCLUDE_TESTS define constraint.
To use Responsible, simply reference this from your test assemblies.
For a simple example of a basic test setup, there's an example project with some basic tests included. This sample game can be installed from the Unity Package Manager, and is also symlinked into the main Unity project in this repository, for convenience.
The library itself also has extensive test coverage,
which may be used as more extensive examples of usage.
Note that these tests live outside of the package,
so that they do not get included into projects referencing Responsible.
(This has to do with undocumented reasons related to using
"type": "tests" in
Unity Error Log Handling
The Unity Tests Runner will fail tests on logged errors. While running a test instruction, Responsible will intercept this process, by listening to logged errors, and overriding the default behavior. The following points are worth noting:
- If you are expecting an error, you must call
UnityTestInstructionExecutor.ExpectLoginstead of only calling
- Logging errors from any other thread but the main thread should mostly be handled, but might be slightly unreliable depending on timing. As test instructions are executed on the main thread, it's impossible to always attribute a logged error to the correct test instruction.
LogAssert.ignoreFailingMessagesis respected at the time of logging.
Test Operation State Editor Window
By using the Editor window available under
Window -> Responsible -> Operation State,
you can observe the progress of your tests executing.
The contents of the window updates in real time and matches the output produced on failures,
except for the operation stack and stack trace.
