    Another possible issue would be the include(Catch) in your root cmakelists.txt . To include Catch there it must be part of your module path. Otherwise you have to include the path to that catch2 cmake file. Here is that file in their repository - . I recon that CMake doesn't know about this file since you call find_package(Catch2 REQUIRED) later in your subdirectory

    Looks good but currently at least REQUIRE (most likely all the other checks too but I didn't test that) fails to correctly evaluate some expressions, due to fundamental problems with macros. One example is described in this issue of the Catch2 repository.

    However, you can use a unit test framework like GoogleTest or Catch2 whic creates a main() function for you which allows you to run single functions, as long as they have been created through some preprocessor macros. Then you can use a VS Code test adapter like this or this which may let you run a single test by right clicking it directly in VS Code.

    Make sure you write unit tests, I use gtest but catch2 is also good.

    I've only ever personally used Catch2, Boost.Test, and a few proprietary unit test frameworks from my company. I enjoy using both Catch2 and Boost.Test, but they have a very different feel. Of these two I find Catch2 easier to get started with. It also has very good CMake an CTest integration. I have heard good things about GoogleTest, but I have never used it myself. GoogleTest also has good CTest support
