Litmus is a web-based, open source, test case management/QA tool, previously maintained by the Mozilla Corporation/Mozilla Foundation.

Mozilla used the tool to test its own products.[1] As of 2012, it has been replaced with MozTrap.[1]


Litmus depends on Apache web server and MySQL database software. It also requires the following Perl modules:[2]

  • 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.
