  1. Treat project references as binary references when not part of solution

    Would like to request an option to treat project references as binary references if they are no part of the current solution or if they have the 'Ignore this project completely' option enabled.

    The reason for this is I work on a large codebase (thousands of projects and deep dependency tree) and our build environment requires that we use ProjectReference for our references (with some projects having dozens of references).

    We do have a custom tool that copies the project's dependencies (the corresponding binaries for all the project references) from our build shares. We then pass the "/p:BuildProjectReferences=false" option to…

  2. Az Devops Pipeline Tasks - (It could give you guys good product exposure $$$)

    Actually In Az Devops, we all use others products, mostly free for ours CI/CD pipelines.

    (for (1) tests result export for quality gates, (2) "test coverage" threshold and (3) "performance" flags (why not a new product with performance regression test on is(even in main product)

    even the horrible dotcover has a free tasks. I would like to use NCrunch out-of-the box there, simple drag and drop

  3. NCrunch Hot Spots Cleaner Window

    This feature is amazing, but find my self only on the top 5-10 most resource prone functions... would like to have a filter somehow to only show top 10% or with some kind of threshold.
    My case: A secondary screen dedicated to Ncrunch split between NC metrics/hot spots/tests (and sometime visual studio tasks/error list) can be kind of busy (really)

    I think think everyone could benefit

  4. NCrunch Metrics Cleaner - Filter Button to not show projects with 100% Coverage.

    NCrunch Metrics Cleaner - Filter Button to not show projects with 100% Coverage, similar to the unit tests, to hide passed tests...

    Maybe in settings: add threshold for filter for team current objectifs: my usecase: for legacy project with 20% coverage we had millestone to increas to 50% and then 80* now we are in average 95%...

    well a second monitor split between metrics, unit tests and hot spots can be quite busy,

    I think think everyone could benefit

  5. Add support for custom MSTest V2 "custom" TestClass and TestMethod Attributes

    MSTest suports overriding certain behavior in the TestClass and TestMethod attributes using inheritance.
    This blogpost describes the pattern well: https://www.meziantou.net/mstest-v2-customize-test-execution.htm

    Ncrunch currently does not discover tests with custom attributes as tests, so this customization is not available using NCrunch

  6. Show tests in the order they are run if Order attribute is used

    If you use NUnit's Order attribute, you can specify an exact order (dependencies) for the tests to run, which also works with NCrunch:

    https://docs.nunit.org/articles/nunit/writing-tests/attributes/order.html

    In the NCrunch window, the tests are however always sorted alphabetically, which makes not much sense, given they are run in a different order. They are just hard to find then e.g.
    It would be nice if you could order them non-alphabetically by order instead.

  7. 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.

    Otherwise it's hard to figure out what is failing.

  9. 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??

  10. 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

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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…

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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…

  18. 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.

  19. 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…

  20. 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…
