Unit Testing in Solidity Using Remix Tests

Learn to write unit tests for a smart contract to ensure its functionality.

The code and software we develop often have loopholes or do not run as intended. They might exhibit negative or unexpected behaviors. Smart contracts are no different. We want to avoid this, if possible, because these contracts frequently deal with money and sensitive information, and once they’re deployed, they can’t be modified. This is why we vigorously test our contracts and try to keep these unwanted behaviors to a minimum.

Setting up

Remix offers us the opportunity to test our contracts using the Solidity Unit Testing plugin. This plugin is already activated when we create a new workspace in Remix. We can confirm this by the presence of a double check mark on the left panel of the IDE.
