Is there any where to get free testnet Bitcoins?

I'm building a project with bitcoins and want to test it with testnet. However, I don't have any testnet bitcoins, and despite the difficulty being less than 100 usually, I still haven't been able to mine a block on my PC (CPU only) after a day. Is there anywhere I could get just some small amount of testnet bitcoins for testing?

2You can also use regression testing mode and generate as many coins as you wish on the go. – George Kimionis – 2015-01-20T13:41:46.400

Looks like you can get some here: https://onchain.io/bitcoin-testnet-faucet

The term "faucet" has been used for quite some time for a site giving away small quantities of coins for free. If the above link ever stops working, a web search for "bitcoin testnet faucet" may find a different site.

1The important part of this answer is the term "faucet"; even if a specific source ceases working, a web search as suggested should be able to find another source of testnet coins. – Sly Gryphon – 2016-11-18T00:35:32.500

it's trying to detect adblockers and fails badly by overblocking non-blockers :D – vv01f – 2017-12-20T09:47:48.743

Worked for me, Instantly! (as of 15 Nov 2018; i know mentioning the date is redundant :) – Vijay Chavda – 2018-11-15T09:09:52.430
