autoUpdateGoldenFiles top-level property

bool autoUpdateGoldenFiles
read / write

Whether golden files should be automatically updated during tests rather than compared to the image bytes recorded by the tests.

When this is true, matchesGoldenFile will always report a successful match, because the bytes being tested implicitly become the new golden.

The Flutter tool will automatically set this to true when the user runs flutter test --update-goldens, so callers should generally never have to explicitly modify this value.
