Config Dump

Kotest can optionally print the configuration that will be used for the test run when the test engine starts up. To do this, set a system property or environment variable, with the name kotest.framework.dump.config and the value true.

For example, with gradle, you set the system property inside the test task configuration block.

test {
systemProperty "kotest.framework.dump.config", "true"

When activated, you should find output like the following in standard out:
