Piglit is an open-source test suite for OpenGL implementations.

Building piglit

Piglit is primarily distributed through git. Given that driver developers frequently need to rebuild tests for debugging purposes during testing, we have found little value in publishing releases.

To check out piglit, use:

git clone https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/mesa/piglit

To build piglit, see the README.


Most piglit test cases are distributed under the MIT license, though some code is under the GPL. The MIT license is the preferred license for the project.


Most discussion about piglit usage and development takes place on the piglit mailing list. To see the collection of prior postings to the list, visit the Piglit Archives.
