The package contains the following features:

  • Running the benchmark suite at a specified commit, branch or tag. The path to the julia executable, the command line flags, and the environment variables can be customized.
  • Comparing performance of a package between different package commits, branches or tags.
  • Exporting results to markdown for benchmarks and comparisons, similar to how Nanosoldier reports results for the benchmarks on Base Julia.


The package is registered and can be installed with Pkg.add as

julia> Pkg.add("PkgBenchmark")


  • STABLEmost recently tagged version of the documentation.
  • DEVmost recent development version of the documentation.

Project Status
