Litmus is a web-based, open source, test case management/QA tool maintained by the Mozilla Corporation/Mozilla Foundation. Litmus can be downloaded from the Mozilla CVS server.

Mozilla uses the tool to test its own products.


Litmus depends on Apache (web server) and MySQL (database software). It also requires the following Perl modules:

  • Class::DBI
  • Class::DBI::mysql
  • Template
  • Time::Piece
  • Time::Piece::mysql
  • Time::Seconds
  • Date::Manip
  • HTML::StripScripts
  • HTML::StripScripts::Parser
  • Text::Markdown
  • XML::XPath

The use of the Apache module mod perl is highly recommended as it highly improves the performance of the software, but not required.
