  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. Support .NET 6.0

    We started working with .NET 6.0 and now I see that I can no longer use NCrunch as it does not support .NET 6.0.

    What are the plans for support of .NET 6.0?

  3. Set a baseline in a project with many failing tests

    Here's a new idea: I'd like to be able to set a "failure baseline" in a project with a lot of failing tests.

    Granted, such a project shouldn't exist in the first place! But I'm sure many of us have had the experience of getting to a new workplace where nobody's run the unit tests for a while, and suddenly the new guy runs them and there are hundreds failing.

    Of course, the ideal thing would be to stop everything and fix them all. But try explaining to management why we can't fix bugs or write new features for a…

  4. Expand all children on specific node via context menu in test window

    In the test window, I would love to be able to click on a node and choose "expand all" to expand all children nodes.

  5. [Convenience] Add text filter for metrics view to quickly find a project

    Background:
    I got a solution with 117 projects. Oftentimes, I will sketch the implementation of a new subsystem and only partially test-cover it while doing the sketch. Once I'm satisfied with the shape and usage, I switch over to completely test-covering it. When doing this, it's helpful to look at the metrics view NCrunch provides.

    However, because of the number of projects, it's a bit tedious to navigate to the right project, open the right namespace etc.

    If there was a textbox on top which would represent a filter on project-names and namespaces that would automatically filter the list on…

  6. Add a "sync with active document" button to the NCrunch Tests window

    When I am inside the source code of a Test, I'd like to have a button in the NCrunch test window that automatically focuses, inside the NCrunch test window itself, the entry corresponding to the test I am editing.

    I already can do a similar thing with Visual Studio's Solution Explorer: if I am editing a source code file, I can press the "sync with active document" button in the toolbar of the solution explorer and get the source code I am editing highlighted in the solution explorer treeview, without having to browse the whole tree by myself.

    I would…

  7. Make the "Show Tests Covering this line" popup a dockable window.

    The behaviour I am suggesting is the same of the native show "symbol references" visual studio popup window. (I am referring to that popup that opens when you click on the "<n> references" tag visual studio shows on top of method and properties declarations)

    it is a pop up, but in its top-right corner there is a icon that, when clicked, turns it in a docked tab in the editor that does not go away.

    the current approach (a simple popup window that goes away as soon as you start interacting with the editor) makes this list of very little…

  8. 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

  9. 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

  10. 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

  11. 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

  12. 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

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  16. 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??

  17. 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…

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
