  1. Enable real time output of the test being run in "NCrunch Tests" window

    It would be nice to have real-time or at least "refreshed" every 5-10 seconds "Test output" console in NCrunch Tests" window.

    Right now the output is provided once test is completed, but it would be useful to have some kind of "refresh every N seconds" option for integration tests. They might take minutes to run, and sometimes it is extremely useful to see output in real time - either to kill the test or to see what's going on.

  2. Improve hover-over hints on tests indicators/icons in 'NCrunch Tests' window

    Oh boy, we still have absolutely no idea what do some icons mean. Really.

    All these alerts icons on the test/assembly row, then green or red clocks, then green question marks. That IS so much puzzling. Seems we lived in VS space too much, at least it was simple - not run, run and pass/failed :)

    Please add hints on hover-over providing an explanation and suggestion on what is going on with the current test or whole test set.

  3. Mark tests using TestCaseSource as failed if an error in the method providing the TestCaseData fails

    Currently an NUnit test that uses a TestCaseSource attribute to provide the data will not show up at all if the method providing the TestCaseSource data has an exception.

    I often end up resorting to Resharper to run the offending test to find out what is going on.

    It would be nice if the tests that are failing because their TestCaseSource is not running can show up as failed tests the same way that they do in Resharper.

  4. Configurable list of custom ItemGroups to be copied over to workspace

    More details - http://forum.ncrunch.net/yaf_postsm7334_Custom-ItemGroups-to-be-copied-over-to-workspace.aspx#post7334

    The scenario is coming up with some shared logic to be used by other teams. They have the freedom to add build targets, so list of custom items used isn't fixed.

    Currently NCrunch just copies over None or Content or Compile items. Having a configurable list of such items will help avoiding workarounds like adding the item twice.

  5. Separate test output to separate dockable window

    (Similar to https://ncrunch.uservoice.com/forums/245203-feature-requests/suggestions/5689966-display-test-output-in-text-window-on-button-clic )

    I sometimes work from home with 1 monitor and at work with 3 monitors. I also tend to like having test output in a less "important" place than the tests themselves.
    With vstudio2015 the split setting (bottom or right) is not restored via the windows layout feature.
    if test output was a separate window I can choose to place/dock it wherever I like (and also restore/save its position).

  6. Option to Build and Start Running Test Only on File Saves

    It would helpful to have an option where NCrunch does not start building the project and running tests until after I save the file. We've had some issues with this in a project I was on that had several thousand unit tests. This would be similar to the way Karma's auto-file watcher works for JavaScript unit testing.

    I'm aware of the sliding building delay - and it can help - but I feel it'd be better to just provide an option to not start processing until I save a file.

  7. Pause instead of disable enable

    I would love to just pause ncrunch at times instead of enabling and disabling which causes the solution to be rescanned again.

  8. Offer a VS toolbar to make switching between engine modes quicker (and visible)

    NCrunch should offer a VS toolbar to make switching between engine modes quicker (and visible). It's an often-used function and is tedious to do it through the menu.

  9. Pause while nuget is installing or updating packages

    NCRunch should pause while NuGet is installing or updating packages. There is no good reason to run tons of tests hogging most of the workstation performance while the solution is in an inconsistent and temporary state. Ncrunch running tests severely impacts the time it takes updates and installs to run.

    PS: Resharper does this so I know it's possible :)

  11. 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.

  12. Ignore Categories of tests

    Note that this isn't the same thing as the enging mode not having a Category automatically run, etc. See http://forum.ncrunch.net/yaf_postsm6015_Ignore-categories-of-tests.aspx for more info.

  13. Provide an engine mode to run only a specific project.

    I have a solution that has many projects and each project has an associated test project. When I am working on project A, I only want NCrunch to run ATests, rather than ATests, BTests, CTests, etc. Currently, I can set the engine mode to pinned and pin my tests, but I have to manually pin all of the tests (I can only pin by class at most).

    Also, I can setup a custom engine mode, but I would rather not have to have an engine mode per project.

    Ideally, I would like a right-click option on a project in the…

  14. Support for C/C++

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

  15. Add coverage aggregates to the xml report produced by the console runner

    The output of the console runner contains HTML and raw xml reports.

    The HTML report is nice, however the contents of the XML files is a bit too detailed to get statistics from it.

    It would be nice to have the same kind of data that is in the HTML file but in XML form (meaning, the % coverage per method/class/assembly/global). Something similar to the DotCover XML or JSON reports. In fact if the format was exactly the same as the dotcover reports we could leverage tools that can already process these files, like SonarQube.

  18. 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.

  19. Create an option to enable NCrunch only when on A/C power

    I almost always develop on a laptop - but sometimes while travelling, and sometimes plugged in. I'd like NCrunch to automatically disable itself when I'm on battery power - it does suck energy like crazy - and then re-enable itself when I'm back on the grid.

  20. Copy engine mode

    I have fairly non trivial engine modes with test filters set. I want to create a new engine mode based on existing but only tweak e.g. a condition in the filter.
    It would help a lot if could copy an existing engine mode and tweak it instead of re-doing the entire filter.
