  1. Add suppport for triggering endless churn mode from console

    Its common that the develop machine is turned of during the night so the endless churn mode doesn't get used as much as it should. We have like many others a dedicated build server and we would love to have the possibility to trigger a nightly build that churns the tests in the solution for a fixed period of time (a few hours or so) so we can gather all failing tests in the morning and make an attempt to fix these tests.

  2. Mark failed NUnit's TestCaseAttributes

    It would be nice to mark failed NUint's TestCaseAttribute-s?
    Otherwise it's hard to figure out what is failing.

  3. Add support for projects referencing Source Generators

    When attempting to use NCrunch to test a project that has a source generator added, the project will not compile under NCrunch's build context because it excludes the Source Generator.

    Please find the relevant thread here: https://forum.ncrunch.net/yafpostsm15305Support-for-C--source-generators.aspx#post15305

  4. Creat A Simple API To Control NCrunch Execution and get Responses From It

    A simple api like, start TEST blah blah ... and get the response whether success or failure, and the console output that is generated , just like in the NCrunch Tests window.

    Also API to start, stop , restart NCrunch , and check current status.

    I'd like to be able to build a simple tool so I can control test execution. :-)

    Maybe NCrunch already has an object model we can tap into??

  5. Add support for bUnit (Blazor Testing Library) Razor tests

    Would be nice to run razor based unit tests so that I can use ncrunch while testing my Blazor applications. The link below is a report of what happens when I attempt this currently. I would be happy to help in any way that I can if this feature is picked up. Thanks again for the wonderful testing tool

  6. License server as docker image

    We do not run virtual servers anymore in our company. Everything is running in k8s.
    Therefore It would be great for us if you could provide us a way to run the server as a container.

  7. configuration

    NCrunch configuration.

    When updating configuration for a solution with many projects, let me change more items before restarting crunch with the new config.

    The problem is that I add a missing folder to support (yes this is a bad solution) a 80 project solution with many failing projects that every time I add a folder it starts again. I would like to add missing folder for each failing project before the result window closes.

    My work around will be to write down the failing folders then update the configuration from that.

  8. Run pinned tests if there are any; run all tests otherwise

    As the title indicates, I'd like an option to run only the tests I pin and if I unpin all tests, it should then run all of them.

  9. Allow sorting of tests in the test window by code order

    Please add an option to allow sorting by natural code order in the test window. So the tests appear in the same order in the test window as they do in the source code file.

    Tests are typically written in roughly increasing order of complexity and dependency - in general, I would almost always want to fix a test that appears first in a source file before those that appear after it.

    Tests are also often (very) loosely grouped together by position in the file - related tests will be next to each other, and it would be helpful to…

  10. Add support for specialized excepted exception custom attributes in MSTest

    If you decorate a unit test with the ExpectedExceptionAttribute in MSTest, it handles it correctly. However, if you derive from ExpectedExceptionBaseAttribute in your own custom attribute to make a more specialized implementation, NCrunch and Visual Studio disagree about whether the test passed.

  11. Stand-alone UI

    I love NCrunch. I don't love Visual Studio. Working in VS is like running a big, fat, slow-turning oil tanker and it has started to make me more and more annoyed as time goes by. I have found myself working more and more with command line and VSCode.

    So, I would like to be able to use NCrunch in that context. A plug-in for VSCode would be nice, but maybe another solution would be to have a completely stand-alone UI for NCrunch, so it can be run separately, but with about the same feature set as included in VS.

  12. Support runsettings TestRunParameters

    My MsTest project has a simple .runsettings file like this:

    <RunSettings>
    
    <TestRunParameters>
    <Parameter name="foo" value="bar" />
    </TestRunParameters>
    </RunSettings>

    These parameters are supposed to be injected at runtime into all test classes TestContext property

    public TestContext TestContext { get; set; }
    

    Then you can use that property like this:

    [TestMethod]
    
    public void TestMethod1()
    {
    Assert.AreEqual("bar", TestContext.Properties["foo"].ToString());
    }

    Unfortunately the this doesn't work when running NCrunch as the properties are not picked up. There doesn't seem to be a way to specify the path to the .runsettings file in NCrunch settings.

    When running via Visual Studio or on Azure DevOps this works…

  13. Provide visual hint that license has expired

    My license expired a few days ago but I didn't realise until I happened to be looking at the version info for other reasons. I would suggest adding a small visual hint (perhaps in the Ncrunch tests window) to indicate that the license is about to expire or has expired.

  14. Integration Test Detection Metric

    Some of the pitfalls of Integration tests are listed in the docs (https://www.ncrunch.net/documentation/guides_integration-testing) and identifying when they've been accidentally introduced into the test suite would be a nice feature.

    An Integration Test Detection could be a metric or report that identified unit tests that are executing a large number of production code classes. In an ideal unit test the number would be 1, the class/system under test. For tests that are tightly coupled to other classes the number might grow quickly. These are problem areas that might need some design work to reduce the coupling or maybe just…

  15. Opt-in option for selection of which projects are monitored

    Currently, the selection of which projects are built is opt-out. That is, all projects are monitored and built unless you set the "Ignore completely" flag explicitly on a project in your configuration.

    It would be nice to have something that works more like building from the GUI or the command-line would: an opt-in feature.

    In this proposed new mode of monitoring-selection, projects would still be monitored, built, and tested exactly as they are now. The only difference would be that all projects would be ignored completed and you would have to explicitly choose a project to be monitored. Obviously, any…

  16. Do not count empty lines after exceptions as uncovered

    Assert.Throws<Exception>(delegate
    {
    ThrowsAnException();
    });

    If the method ThrowsAnException throws an exception, the last line "})" is marked as uncovered.

  17. Add the ability to run a test fixture manually

    It's easy and convenient to run an individual test manually by using the markers in the source, but there's no marker for running a test fixture (class with multiple tests in it). It would be nice if a dot were added for the fixture too.

  18. Be able to run grid node on linux

    Provide the ability to run a grid node on linux.

    I mainly develop for dotnet core with CI being linux based and deploy exclusively on linux based environments (though I develop on Windows 10 as a personal preference).

    I would be great if I could deploy grid node to linux local / cloud hosts.

  19. 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…

  20. 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.
