Run tests

Run tests directly in a file or folder

If your tests don't require any specific actions before start, and you don't want to configure additional options, such as code coverage, you can run them by using the following options:

  • Place the caret at the test file to run all tests in that file, or at the test method, and press Ctrl+Shift+F10. Alternatively, click the gutter icon next to the test method and select Run '<test name>' from the list.

  • Press Ctrl twice to open the Run Anything popup and specify the cargo test command with additional arguments if required.

  • Double-click the test target in the Cargo tool window (View | Tool Windows | Cargo).

  • To run all tests in a folder, select this folder in the Project tool window and press Ctrl+Shift+F10 or select Run Tests in 'folder' from the context menu.

Customizable way (using a run/debug configuration)

When you run a test, RustRover creates a temporary run configuration. You can save temporary run configurations, change their settings, share them with other members of your team. For more information, refer to Run/debug configurations.

  1. Create a new run configuration or save a temporary one.

  2. Use the Run widget on the main toolbar to select the configuration you want to run.

  3. Name your configuration (or leave the default name).

  4. In the Command field, type the Cargo command: test + extra arguments if needed.

  5. Click Apply and close the Run/Debug Configurations dialog.

After RustRover finishes running your tests, it shows the results in the Run tool window on the tab for that run configuration. For more information about analyzing test results, refer to Explore test results.

Run or debug a test

To start running or debugging a test, you can use the main toolbar or a context menu in the Project tool window or in the editor:

  • Use the main toolbar:

    1. Select the necessary run/debug configuration from the list on the main toolbar.

      Press Alt+Shift+F10 to see the list of available run configurations or Alt+Shift+F9 for debug configurations.

    2. Click Run Run or Debug Debug to the right of the list. Alternatively, select Run | Run Shift+F10 or Run | Debug Shift+F9 from the main menu.

  • Use a context menu:

    • Right-click a test class in the Project tool window or open it in the editor, and right-click the background. From the context menu, select Run <class name> or Debug....

    • For a test method, open the class in the editor and right click anywhere in the method. The context menu suggests the command Run / Debug <method name>.
