l3build: a testing and building system for LaTeX3
l3build module is designed to support the development of high-quality LaTeX code by providing:
- A unit testing system
- Automated typesetting of code sources
- A reliable packaging system for CTAN releases
The bundle consists of a Lua script to run the tasks and a
.tex file which provides the testing environment. These were originally developed for supporting LaTeX3 development but are designed such that they can be readily used by others. Full documentation is provided.
The issue tracker for LaTeX3 is currently located on GitHub.

l3build – A testing and building system for (La)TeX
The build system supports testing and building LaTeX3 code, on Linux, Mac OS X and Windows systems. The package offers:
- A unit testing system for (La)TeX code (whether kernel code or contributed packages);
- A system for typesetting package documentation; and
- An automated process for creating CTAN releases.
The package is essentially independent of other material released by the LaTeX3 team, and may be updated on a different schedule.
