CMake project templates for C++11 and CUDA with google test/benchmark supportTweet
Books generally don't cover project organization and few introductions to C++ discuss testing frameworks, let alone benchmarking. In my experience, many science students compile without optimization flags, don't know how to separate header and source files, tests, etc etc. So I created two simple cmake project templates. One for C++11 (with a library and an executable) and one for CUDA. Both support testing with Google Test and benchmarks with Google Benchmark.
- C++11 cmake project with google test / google benchmark support.
- C++/CUDA cmake project with google test / google benchmark support.
CMake is a popular tool for building cross-platform C++ applications, you shouldn't have any issue installing it.
The C++ project template works on both Linux/UNIX and Windows, while the CUDA project is tested only on Linux. Feel free to fork / suggest improvements.
