  1. Support the new PackageReference nodes in VS 2017 project files.

    Currently NCrunch can't build projects that use the new PackageReference structure for NuGet packages as opposed to the "old" packages.config.

    Workaround is to use the old method.

    • Code Coverage Suppression on Next Line Only

      On unit tests where you check for expected exceptions the end of the method can't be reached, so the line with the closing curly bracket keeps uncovered.

      Placing a no coverage comment directly after the closing curly bracket works.

      If you reorganize your code by using automated tools such like CodeMaid or ReSharper, the no coverage comment does not stay after the designated line and you have to adjust that by hand again (and again...).

      Introducing a suppression comment like
      "// ncrunch: no coverage next"
      which can be placed directly over the closing curly brackets would be moved as expected,…

      • Use project loaded in VS

        Hi.

        I want to be able to mark that nCrunch only use/load the projects that are loaded in VS.
        Since our solution are becoming big, I use Funnel to load only the projects I need for my current task. But nCrunch still load all projects in my solution file.

        • Increase startup speed in VS2017

          Please, increase the startup speed in Visual Studio 2017. Every now and then it shows me a window with extension-related startup delays, and asking to disable them.

          • Do not automatically perform a build if tests are set to run manually

            We have some projects that are very expensive to build. Since I would like to see the output of the last test, I do not want to disable NCrunch completely, but the build engine keeps building the projects even when the tests are all set to run manually and I haven't yet started a test. I would like the option to defer the build until a test is scheduled for execution.

            • to support custom Xunit test cases

              As discussed on Twitter (https://twitter.com/remcomulder/status/782892104485703681), I'd like NCrunch to support custom test cases.

              xUnit has the support for custom test cases, as the STAExamples of the xUnit Samples demonstrate (https://github.com/xunit/samples.xunit/tree/master/STAExamples). That relies on using your own test discoverer, and specifying a custom test case. When you run that in NCrunch, it fails with a cast exception (https://gist.github.com/tiesmaster/5ecb8bf76aab6ee3cb2bfcc9d4f08e72#file-stacktrace-of-staexamples-on-stable-xunit-packages-downgraded-to-2-1-0).

              I think this is a niche feature, since this something that won't be used that often, but still a powerful feature, so it would be really nice to have this.

              • Show source code in code coverage report

                In the code coverage report, we would like to be able to navigate into the source code files and see which lines are covered, much like OpenCover does. Here is a screenshot of that feature in OpenCover:

                https://www.dropbox.com/s/38kj2wr5bczbtls/OpenCover%20Source%20Code%20Coverage%20Example.PNG?dl=0

                Our developers love using NCrunch. We would like to use NCrunch for our CI process, especially because it would unify the development and CI environments. The organization is hesitant to use NCrunch for CI without the ability to drill down into the source code in the report to see what lines of code were covered when the CI job ran.

                • Add option to run test until failure

                  For tests with randomly generated inputs (e.g., FsCheck for F#), it would be great to have an NCrunch option that continues to run a single test until it fails, in order to catch rare edge cases.

                  Currently, the alternatives with NCrunch aren't so great:

                  1) If you set the maximum number of test runs to a large number, then when a failing case is found, it is necessary to run ALL the tests preceding the failing test in order to reproduce the failure, in order for the underlying random number generator to end up in the same state which generated…

                  • Support [TestProperty]

                    MSTest allows us to tag tests with [TestProperty] attributes and their values are then available as this.TestContext.Properties.
                    However, ncrunch is not populating this dictionary, so a test using these attributes works in mstest/resharper, but fails in ncrunch.

                      • Rerun flaky test

                        I'm using NCrunch for more than 2 years.
                        IMHO it's must-have extension.
                        When I come to new company that do not use NCrunch I need to fix/stabilize some test to run with NCruch engine.
                        But still I stay with few flaky test.
                        I need to rerun them few times to filter trully failing test.

                        It would be nice introduce option for my case with flanky test.
                        It could be rerun count before test is treated as failed
                        Other option to introduce 3rd test state: flanky.

                        • Enable "hotspots" indicators also for awaited asynchronous method calls.

                          I would like NCrunch to display the actual time taken for an async method to have been called, when using await, instead of showing 0ms, just like they do for ordinary synchronous calls.
                          See http://screencast.com/t/1mwMqiK0bi

                          Example code:
                          [TestFixture]
                          internal class TestFixture
                          {
                          private async Task FooAsync()
                          {
                          await Task.Delay(1000);
                          }
                          [Test]
                          public async Task AsyncTest()
                          {
                          await FooAsync(); //Coverage marker indicates 0ms duration.
                          }
                          [Test]
                          public void NonAsyncTest()
                          {
                          FooAsync().Wait(); //Coverage marker indicates 1s duration.
                          }

                          }

                          • Display Reason for ignored tests

                            I use Nunit, with ExplicitAttribute(string reason) on TestFixture class.
                            The tests are correctly ignored but there no reason visible in NCrunch Tests window.

                            It would be nice to have the reason, when I select an ignored test. Perhaps in Trace Output (which is empty for ignored tests).

                                • Fix up layout of custom engine modes test filter builder screen

                                  Currently the "Test Filter Builder" screen in custom engine modes renders very badly. (This is on my 4K laptop screen). See http://imgur.com/Vw5Q1qZ.

                                  This makes the feature barely usable - would be great (and hopefully simple) to fix it.

                                  • Provide parallelized execution time on Performance markers

                                    Today, NCrunch shows the execution time across all threads on its performance markers.

                                    If code is run in parallel, e.g.

                                    Parallel.For(0, 100000, DoSomething);

                                    the execution time is somehow misleading as it is not the real execution time (eg. 5 seconds) but instead the overall time (eg. 1 minute).

                                    It would be nice if NCrunch would show both times, the actual time needed for the loop as well as the overall time accross all threads.

                                    • Expose MSpec's [Subject] details in the tests window

                                      MSpec uses a [Subject] attribute to nominate the unit-under-test and optionally allows a "concern" to be specified.

                                      In R# these items appear in the test runner window as part of the test name, however in NCrunch there doesn't seem to be any way to get at this information, which is unfortunate.

                                      There just seems to be a level of organization missing when working with MSpec tests. It would be really helpful to be able to group the tests either by the [Subject] attribute, or by the file name that the test is defined in.

                                      • Be able to specify which class(es) a test is covering

                                        I've noticed that in our test suite, various classes are showing as having code coverage through implict usage i.e. I'm testing class A, which is using class B within a tested method, and so lines of class B show as covered, when there's no dedicated tests for class B.

                                        Technically class B is getting tested there, but it would be nice if we had an attribute we could optionally use (multiple times per class/method), which specifies which class(es) the class/method is testing.

                                        [Tests<A>]

                                        Then the code analysis will only calculate the LoC coverage for classes specified by the attribute(s) on…
