Dart / Dart 2 are pretty much deprecated. You should start directly with CDash.

CDash wiki is well hidden on kitware's wiki at:


Installation is a no brainer ! then all you have to do is create your
project from the cdash interface, somwhere at the end you will be able
to dwonload a ctest script that you should simply drop in your project
(don't forget to ENABLE_TESTING and INCLUDE(CTest) in cmake)... you
should be all done !

Once you have the ctest stuff activated in cmake, simply type 'make
help' and you should see all the target possible for teting purpose
(Nightly, Experimental...)

Ps: could someone please fix the link cdash.org/wiki to point to
http://public.kitware.com/Wiki/CDash and/or add a main cdash entry
from http://public.kitware.com/Wiki/
