Is there a way to run individual tests in forge? looking for a behavior similar to '.only' in mocha

3 Answers 3


Yes you can!

You can use forge test --match-contract $YourContractName or even forge test --match where, for exemple, if you use --match mint, forge will execute all tests that have 'mint' in their function name.

Hope this helps!

  • this might help forge test --match-test yourFunctionName book.getfoundry.sh/… Sep 27, 2023 at 19:36

For individual tests i use:

 forge test --match-path test/functional/**/$(TEST_NAME)\*

This runs TEST_NAME in any subfolder after the the path test/functional


In case you want to just test a specific function try this:

forge test --match-test yourFunctionName
