JobBox is a collection of tests that aim to cover all aspects of modern computer hardware. It is intended to be used alongside with CheckBox and PlainBox projects as a source of actual data.

The name JobBox is a wordplay that matches the naming scheme of the CheckBox project group. The job part refers to CheckBox jobs which represent the smallest piece of testing that can be performed. In essence, JobBox is just a box with jobs.


JobBox can be installed from a PPA (recommended) or pypi on Ubuntu Precise (12.04) or newer.

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:checkbox-dev/ppa && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install jobbox
