  1. Update or replace the NCrunch Forum software

    The software used for the NCrunch Forum (forum.ncrunch.net) is really terrible for this day and age.

    I tried to search for a DPI issue, and it griped at me for trying to search for fewer than four characters.

    I tried to upload an image to show the DPI issue I was having, and it wanted me to give the URL of the image.

    I'm sure this forum software was fine, at least better than nothing, back when NCrunch first came out, but just like NCrunch has improved over time, so has online forum software, and it seems like time to…

  2. Allow more flexibility in test and hierarchy display

    Currently there are six hard-coded ways to display tests in the NCrunch Tests window.

    My proposal is that in place of this hard-coded list, there be a way to specifically configure what I want to see:

    * Category (on/off)
    * Project (on/off)
    * Namespaces (one level per dot, or all grouped in one level, or none)
    * Fixture (on/off)
    * Test (full namespace.class.name / just method name)

    Usually except for large projects I'd prefer to just show the test name, but currently there's no way to do that. "Test" view shows namespace.class.testname.

  3. Add function to attach to a process by PID

    I have a process that is being launched during the run of a test that I need to attach to. The current workflow of manually attaching to the test is slow and irritating. I believe since ncrunch is running as a VS extension ncrunch could provide a function to attach to a particular process by PID.

    Sample code that implements this feature, with MIT license:

  4. instrument C#.Net webapi server deployed on Microsoft Azure Service Fabric Cluster so as to get code coverage for the same

    Need to be able to instrument C#.Net webapi server deployed on Microsoft Azure Service Fabric Cluster? I am looking to get code coverage for the same, for the integration tests that are running against a Webapi server deployed on the SF host.

  5. Save the Timeline report every 10 minutes

    Save the Timeline report every 10 minutes in order to keep the history of a whole work session (a few hours). I could make visual reports based on the xml file.

    I would need this for the training / coaching I do with team that are learning TDD.
    I want to show them how NCrunch can be used to improve their practice and reduce their feedback loops. I don't know any other tool that could do it for Visual Studio and it would provide precious information.
    We could even make it a game/competition with clear number objectives!

  6. Treat unit and system tests differently

    I've worked in a number of scenarios where we had a subset of tests which would be better classed as "system tests". I.e. they covered a large amount of system functionality and took a considerably amount of time to run (sometimes minutes). Running these as conventional unit tests under Ncrunch, triggered by every editor change is overkill but OTOH the Ncrunch UI is really nice and its ability to automatically run things is very helpful. It would be useful if these tests could be treated in a different way to normal units tests, e.g. only run on a scheduled basis…

  7. Support Inline Code Coverage in .razor Tests

    NCrunch supports crunching xUnit tests defined in an @code block of a razor file. It would be great if automatic inline code coverage were supported for those tests.

  8. Possibility to turn off 'Churn...' when 'Show coverage on selected test only' is on

    When you activate 'Show coverage on selected test only' while at the same time having 'Churn selected test until it fails' on, there is only a popup dialogue for turning off the 'Show coverage on selected test only'. It's probably more relevant to stop churning than to show coverage of all the tests in that particular situation, so It would be nice if the dialogue [also] offered the possibility to cancel the churning session.

  9. Allow to exclude/include files for "Autodetect Nuget build dependencies"

    The documentation (https://www.ncrunch.net/documentation/reference_project-configuration_autodetect-nuget-build-dependencies) describes that NCrunch is able to auto-detect NuGet package references.

    It also states that it may happen that NCrunch workspaces might bloat significantly.

    At least to work around some limitations it would be nice to have a filter that either excludes or includes specific files.

    For example, I would like to exclude the .nupkg files and the .xml (documentation) files. In my specific scenario that would reduce the "bloat" from 16MB to 4MB as now I only include the DLLs I actually need.

  10. Support build of Azure functions

    Azure functions are becoming more and more used. Unfortunatly NCrunch is not compatible with them. What's the plan to support them ?

    We wanted to give all developers on my company an NCrunch licence but we all add some Azure functions to our projects, so people instead use Continuous Testing from Jetbrains. It does the work, but NCrunch is clearly ahead. Hope it will be supported soon.

  11. Detect impacted tests when assembly attributes change that impact test running

    With NUnit 3 I added [assembly:Apartment(ApartmentState.STA)] as an assembly-level attribute, thus applying to all tests in that assembly. Yet, NCrunch doesn't consider that for impacted tests. There are possibly also other assembly attributes that could impact all tests.

  12. Provide option to only run tests on a Grid Node and not on the local machine

    Provide the ability to specify that certain tests should never run on the local machine and should always run on applicable Grid Node clients (e.g. if the Grid Node client meets whatever capabilities are specified, etc.).

  13. Add "Check for Updates" menu item or do it automatically

    All modern tools have possibility to check that updates available. I think good thing to have possibility check updates automatically or by the menu item, and inform user about new version available.

  14. Support Visual Studio 2019 Solution Filters

    With 3.25 NCrunch builds and test the complete solution even if a Solution filter is used. This is one side a good thing, so that if i break something in a filtered project, this will be detected pretty quickly.

    But it may be nice in some more complicated case, only run and build the projects which are in the filter. Because the filter is used to explizit not build and test some projects.

  15. Keyboard shortcut for running covering tests matching current engine mode settings.

    Similar to keyboard shortcuts "Run covering test in existing/new test process" I would like similar running covering tests, but using the engine mode filter settings for "tests to execute automatically".

    Scenario: I have NUnit fixtures which generate tests with different categories, e.g.
    [TextFixture(TypeArgs=new[]{typeof(SqlServerTest)}, Category="SqlServer")]
    [TextFixture(TypeArgs=new[]{typeof(SQLiteTest)}, Category="SQLite")]

    I have 2 engine modes for running "sql server" and "SQLite" categories. Now, when I am at some covering code, I want to run the tests covering it, but only using the current selected engine mode (e.g. "SQLite").
    In same way, when having cursor on a test, which both above categories uses, I easily…

  16. Include "Download full log" link in AllResults.html

    I want to be able to download entire test output data in a file in order to search for keyword in any of the tests.

    Scenario: I use NCrunch on TeamCity and have AllResults.html in a tab, since I also use "run impacted tests only" the TeamCity build log itself does not contain all test output so I have to resort to AllResults.html. I there want to find all tests with log output containing a substring, but have no way of searching output of all tests in one go.

  17. Add engine mode condition "Test is included in coverage filter"

    Related to https://forum.ncrunch.net/yaf_postst2665_-Impacted-test--ignoring-coverage-filter.aspx

    I would like to create an engine mode which runs condition ("impacted tests" AND "included in coverage filter"). Where "included in coverage filter" is true if no UI coverage filter is used, or the tests is covered by such a filter.

    Scenario: I have a lot of pinned tests and want to focus on say 3 tests to quickly verify a fix in a part of code so I filter on those tests. I would then like to have an engine mode only running these tests in filter, but still execute impacted tests (so I don't manually…

  18. Add overlay icon in Tests window indicating if test is included in UI coverage filter

    I would like to easy spot which tests in my test are included in current UI coverage filter.
    Given I have a coverage filter set, I would like an icon on the test (e.g. red X with some small overlay icon for a failing test) so I easily can see which tests that are currently used in coverage filter (e.g. when have 20 pinned tests and showing coverage for only 5 of them).

  19. Add count of pinned tests in Tests window summary

    Today the tests window states e.g. "No tests are queued for execution. Monitoring 150 tests (10 failing), with 20 tests ignored."
    I would like that text to include how many tests I have pinned (easy to tell if a new one gets pinned or not for example via engine mode).

  20. Add "Test sessions"/workspaces for test window

    I would like, similar to ReSharper, to be able to save a collection of tests in a session/tab in order to work on it later on.

    Scenario: I have 20 pinned failing tests which I am currently have in my worklog to fix. At one point in time I want to focus on a few other tests. I would like to save the 20 pinned tests in a tab, and pin 4 other tests in order to focus on those, and then later get back to the 20 pinned tests I was originally working on

    Note: It might as well…
