  1. Support Visual Studio 2019 Preview!

    Visual Studio 2019 Preview was just released yesterday. How soon can we get a compatible NCrunch installer for it?

    • Support Xamarin in Visual Studio 2017

      Official Visual Studio 2017 with Xamarin support would be nice. In the moment it does only work the you edit Xamarin.forms.Targets file, what is annoying.

      • Abort grid node processing in NCrunch Console if no more tests are to be executed

        From forum: https://forum.ncrunch.net/yaf_postst2641_Why-is-not-NCrunch-aborting-build-analysis-on-pending-grid-nodes-when-no-work-remains.aspx

        If I have 1 slow grid node connected to NCrunch Console, and NCrunch engine has completed all tests for the engine mode, I want the slow grid node to abort its build/analyze processing since there are no more tests to execute anyhow.

        Background: My NCrunchConsole runs on a fast server, one grid node might be very slow. So even though the console tool is completed building/analyzing/running tests within 3 minutes, it sits and wait for the slow grid node to complete building for another e.g. 15 minutes (see forum post for a timeline example).

        • "Pin tests" link in "coverage has been set to show X test only" window

          Similar to https://ncrunch.uservoice.com/forums/245203-feature-requests/suggestions/6363545-when-showing-coverage-for-specific-tests-show-icon , I have X pinned tests, and currently only show coverage for 1 test.
          The code I am looking indicates uncovered (or filtered due to coverage filter).
          I would like a link similar "Click to return to normal" that reveals the tests currently showing coverage for (easiest way I guess is to pin them).
          This way I can easily navigate to the tests currently used in coverage filter, without currently having covered code under cursor.

          • Add RMB menu "Run starting test on all enabled servers"

            I have an explicit test which resets database to a clean state. If for whatever reason the db state becomes invalid, I would like to run this test on all connected/enabled "servers" (local and grid nodes).

            Today I must select one by one ("Run starting test on server>X ") to ensure db is reset within each grid node.

            • Option to always show compile warnings

              [v3.23.0.10]
              Today compile warnings are hidden with NCrunch for successfully built projects, I must select to "show all tests" and then select each project to see them.

              I would like a toolbar button or similar which toggles compile warnings, so I can always spot those before committing even if project builds without errors.

              • Incremental build for console tool

                From https://forum.ncrunch.net/yaf_postst2644_Incremental-build-with-NCrunch-console.aspx

                I run NCrunch console on TeamCity with engine mode "run impacted tests only" (with switch -NCrunchCacheStoragePath) but the build/analyze phase is always restarting from scratch instead of utilizing "incremental build" functionality, which causes the session to run longer than needed even if no source files have been modified.

                I would want, in some way, to have the console tool session behave as an "incremental build" with MsBuild would do, granted nothing has changed in source files and NCrunch cache folder is kept between sessions.

                • Allow to run in memory only

                  It would be nice if I could run ncrunch in memory only. That would extend the lifetime of SSDs and would be much faster. At the moment this is only possible with a ram drive.

                  • Filter on test category

                    I would like the "Search" window in NCrunch Tests also match test categories (and maybe other columns as well?).

                    (going "all in" the grid component could maybe be replaced with a component with filter-per-column possibilities)

                    • Pin tests matching engine mode

                      Before selecting an engine mode (e.g. "Performance Tests") I would like to see which tests that would be executed for this mode, e.g. by pinning them. This way I can choose only to test run a single matching test for triage.

                      Ideas for implementation:
                      A) Create a sub menu on each engine mode "Pin matching tests" or similar, while the top menu item (engine mode name) still behaves as today.

                      B) Add a NCrunch tests window toolbar button "Do not run tests automatically", then add a menu item "Pin test matching current engine mode". Then one can disable auto-execution, select…

                          • Support Install Directory Outside of AppData

                            Due to security restrictions on programs executing out of AppData at my company, they whitelist another directory where we can install development software. Because NCrunch does not allow an install directory outside of AppData, I am unable to get it to work under this security policy.

                            It is pretty common to allow custom install paths, so I am requesting that you support this feature for NCrunch as well.

                            • Add "Configure selected component" RMB menu on NCrunch project warnings

                              [v3.22]
                              Today I can select a project in NCrunch Tests window and RMB and choose "Configure selected component" to easily find it in the NCrunch Configuration pane.
                              However for project warnings I cannot do this (e.g. for warning "NCrunch detected unusual behaviour around the resolution of referenced assemblies required by this project in its test environment"). and must manually navigate to the project in the configuration pane, which is tedious for large solutions.

                              • Add "/VS" switch (vstudio version) to grid node server configuration

                                I have some tests requiring vs2013, these work fine with ncrunch.exe since I can use the /VS version.
                                However when I use vs2017 for local development the tests are failing (since the grid node uses vs2017 if that is available).
                                I would like the grid node configuration to be able to specifiy a vs version to use, so I can dedicate 1 grid node to run in vs2013 environment (in combination with capabilities to ensure such tests are run on that)

                                    • Integrate with the upcoming project rider, similar to what WallabyJS does

                                      Integrate with the upcoming IDE from jetbrains to support project rider. Project rider is already available for download. Based on intellij. NCrunch couldn't do exactly what WallabyJS is doing and providing a number of IDE integrations.

                                      • Support for Paket

                                        Paket is an alternative package manager that support NuGet packages. Currently NCrunch will auto detect NuGet packages that have build targets in the csproj and copy the tools folder into the workspace for that package.

                                        This does not work when using Paket and requires manual fixup of the additional files to include the tools folders.

                                        Please add support for Paket based NuGet references in the same way as NuGet is supported.

                                        • Support the new Visual Studio Code IDE

                                          Support the new Visual Studio Code editor.
                                          While it doesn't yet provide extensibility for utils like NCrunch, it is apparently planned for upcoming development, so I wanted to get this on the NCrunch radar.
