No output when unit testing

Hi there,

I’ve been trying to get unit testing working on an STM32 L432KC. I have a class called “Piano” that has a function called “add” that simply adds two numbers passed to the function. I have the following test in the “test” folder:

When I go to run it, I get what is seen above, it says it is testing, but I don’t get any output. I’ve tried resetting the board like the terminal says.

Here is my platformio.ini file:

[env:nucleo_l432kc]
platform = ststm32
board = nucleo_l432kc
framework = mbed
upload_protocol = stlink
debug_tool = stlink
build_flags = -O12 -D PIO_FRAMEWORK_MBED_RTOS_PRESENT
build_unflags = -Os
;monitor_filters = log2file, default
monitor_speed = 115200
build_type = release
test_build_project_src = true

Thank you!

When you manually open a serial monitor at 115200 baud and reset the board, do you see any Unity test run output?

Thanks for the response.

This is what I get when I open a serial terminal manually:

Check if you get something with monitor_speed = 9600, the default mbed-os baudrate might be that.

Bingo. That seemed to do it. Thank you, much appreciated. Here’s what I get now:

I’m wondering, how come I don’t get something like this:

This uses the pio test command which parses the serial output in displays it in a pretty way. Previously you just opened the serial monitor and looked at the raw output.

If you use the Test build target you should get similar style output.

After uninstalling and reinstalling the PIO plugin, it seems to be outputting the test results in the PIO terminal now. It’s still not formatting the output all nice like in the photo above, but at least I don’t have to open the serial monitor as well.

Thank you for your help.

Can you show a screenshot of what happens when you execute the Test task?

Sure thing. In the PIO terminal, I ran “pio test”. I have to press reset on the board for it to show the output. Here’s the output:

Here is the full output:

That is the correct output. It uploads to the host and gives the [PASSED] for every tested function. Seems like you have moved the test to the dedicated test/ folder now though. The reference screenshot just as more environments (desktop and embedded) and more test functions.

Got it, thank you, much appreciated.
