We hope you find it useful!
We have enjoyed using Google Mock in many projects at Google. Outside of Google, the most notable client is probably the Chromium projects (behind the Chrome browser and Chrome OS). If you know of a project that's using Google Mock and want it to be listed here, please let firstname.lastname@example.org know.
Google Mock is not a testing framework itself. Instead, it needs a testing framework for writing tests. Google Mock works seamlessly with Google Test. It comes with a copy of Google Test bundled. Starting with version 1.1.0, you can also use it with any C++ testing framework of your choice.
Google Mock has been tested with gcc 4.0+ and Microsoft Visual C++ 8.0 SP1. Users reported that it also works with gcc 3.4, Microsoft Visual C++ 7.1, and Cygwin, although we haven't tested it there ourselves.
If you are new to the project, we suggest to read the user documentation in the following order:
You can also watch Zhanyong's talk on Google Mock's usage and implementation.
