  1. Support for C/C++

    It would be awsome if NCrunch could add support for C/C++ (or at least C++ CLI)

    • Support UITestMethod in Windows Store apps

      Posted in response to: forum.ncrunch.net/yaf_postsm5807_UITestMethod-not-recognized.aspx.

      Currently NCrunch ignores test methods with UITestMethod attribute which forces the test to run on the UI thread. This is required whenever the test needs to manipulate a UI element even if it's not a UI test in itself.

      • Remote server: Add some sort of performance index per server

        I would like to have some index indicating how well the grid node server performs related to other servers.
        For instance, if I run 2 grid servers on Azure and 2 on internal network, I want to know if it's worth adding more servers on Azure or on internal network (or if it helps out scaling Azure servers etc.).

        One idea might be to have an average processing time on tests, and check when test has been executed on different servers is above or below the average execution time and calculate some sort of performance index from those measurements and…

        • Add Setting to Allow NCrunch to Output to Standard Console

          Add a way to force console output to appear in the regular 'Output' window rather than having to click the test itself and see the output.

          This would be extremely useful so i view my Console.WriteLine output in real time in the Output window rather than having to wait until the test finishes and have to click on it to see the output. Also when my tests fail by throwing exceptions when using FluentAssertions, the code hangs on that line and anything i wrote to the console is lost when i stop debugging the test.

          Basically we just need to…

          • Create an SDK for third party framework support

            Having up to date support for many different testing frameworks is no-doubt a lot of work. The result is that some frameworks are not supported to their full or simply not popular enough to justify adding support.

            If an integration SDK was made available, it would allow third party frameworks (or interested users) to add support. This would allow for even niche frameworks the opportunity to be fully supported.

              • Option to always start NCrunch disabled

                I frequently switch between working copies/branches and since I use an engine mode which is automatically running tests I would to manually enable NCrunch on startup. This since the test suite is very heavy and I might want to open solution without immediately running all tests and/or I need some changes to e.g. "Custom environment variables" so tests are running correctly.

                (Now I need to remember to disable NCrunch before closing project, which I most often do not remember. Also the now and then occasional vstudio crashes prevents me from setting this)

                • Remote server: Conditionally run tests depending on which remote server they are running on.

                  Scenario:
                  I have http integration tests which will report results in one way locally (due to IIS custom errors) and one way remotely. Thus for tests verifying the corretc "remote" response I would like them to run on a grid node that is not running on my local machine.

                  The current "Capabilities" is not attractive since that is set on grid node server itself and requires project-specific user configurations on each grid node server (which annoys the developers if they are running them on their dev machines if I will need to interrupt to tweak custom project settings).

                  Possible solutions…

                    • Display test output in text window (on button click)

                      We use extensive logging information to analyze test failures.

                      Currently the test output is only displayed in a split window of the tests window. This makes reading and analyzing long test outputs (especially with long lines) rather difficult.

                      Therefore it would be nice to be able to display the test output with one button click in a separate (temporary) text window (similar to the Visual Studio test runner).

                      • Make a license of NCrunch available for free to Open Source projects

                        I can't justify paying for NCrunch to volunteer on a FOSS project.

                        ReSharper does this.

                          The update reminders at the moment come through the N icon on the bottom right. Visual Studio however already provides a separate Notifications hub.

                          • Make NCrunch grid performance measurable

                            Provide some kind of programmatic access to performance indicators that are able to report the performance of a ncrunch grid, e.g. provide access to the duration of a full-end-to-end test. This would enable things like auto-scaling a grid.

                            • Merge "custom environment variables" settings between shared/user settings.

                              Today the "custom environment variables" are "all or nothing" between the layers, e.g. if you have 5 settings in "shared settings" and want a new one (or modify one) locally, you need to duplicate all 5 in "my settings" to avoid the other ones being "unset" in the test runner.

                              I would like "my settings" to only override the ones I specify, so I can keep the 5 ones in "shared settings" being "active", and only add (or modify) 1 specific in "my settings".

                              • In Test window, Server column for grouping rows should include all servers for children (not just one of them).

                                In my case Server always says "(Local)" if any child test ran locally. I think this should be a comma-delimited list like Category. Next best thing would be leaving it blank.

                                If I'm filtering for failed tests only, the current behavior is really a bug, because all of the failing tests may have ran on one node server that isn't (local), yet the grouping row alone still says (local). So it makes scanning the server column to troubleshoot issues (in this case node server dependency config issues) confusing.
