  1. Allow negative wildcard inclusions

    NCrunch allows you to add files and directory to include in the workspace using file globbing patterns. This is a great feature. However, this feature could be improved to also allow you to specify "negative inclusions", which would greatly benefit large solutions.

    My solution has 107 projects in it and one of the projects is a test project that runs some "solution-wide" tests using Roslyn Compiler Services. So this test project requires that the entire solution be in the workspace. However, what I don't need are all the {bin,obj}*. files, just the *.cs and *.csproj files.

    Currently, it's really difficult…

  2. Engine mode condition to allow distribute processing only of some tests

    Summary: I would like to specify an engine mode e.g. "Run db tests locally, all other distributed".
    Details: I would like to define grid nodes condition in the NCrunch engine mode settings. A first simple step would be to add setting similar to "Tests to execute on this machine", but under the Distributed Processing node. This way I can ensure no test with category [DbTest] is executed on grid nodes, but only on local (where I have the test db set up).

  3. Include Process Id in NCrunch Console Timeline report

    I would like to see when NCrunch starts up a new, or reuses existing, process in the NCrunch Console Timeline report, so I can find if long test run duration is due to process startup time or due to slow test run.

  4. Run same test with different configuration options (similar to NUnit's TestCase)

    Let's say I need to support 2 db providers (e.g. SqlServer and Sqlite) and I write the same (1) test for both but in the configuration file for the test project I define which db provider it should connect to.

    Currently the work process is something like:
    1) Run all tests with SqlServer provider setting set
    2) Change configuration file to use Sqlite provider.
    3) Re-run all tests to tests towards Sqlite provider.

    What I would like to have is something like:
    1) In a setting for a test project, define x number of "environment configurations" where I guess the…

  5. Option to hide NCrunch warnings per user

    I would like a solution setting so clicking "Click here to hide this warning" ends up in my .ncrunchproject.user instead of team shared .ncrunchproject file.

    Background:
    I have a lot of warnings in projects I am hiding, after validating they are valid to ignore. If I am not experienced with NCrunch I probably do not know what they mean, hide it and commit changes to .ncrunchproject files.
    The warnings also include grid nodes warnings, which might only be specific for my machine (if we e.g. do not share grid nodes for the team settings) and really makes no sense to…

  6. improve indicators for explicit and ignored tests

    I use Nunit but I guess there are similar concepts for other test frameworks. Currently any explicit or ignored tests have white icons in the editor and show as unexecuted in the tests window.

    I would like the option to change these indicators. In particular to change the colour/shape for the ignored/explicit tests icon in the editor.

    I would also like a filter for both explicit and ignored tests in the tests window. This would help me to track these tests down quickly

  7. Allow AssemblyVersion to be ignored in order to prevent errors in NCrunch

    If the AssemblyVersion attribute contains an asterisk (eg "1.0.0.*") then NCrunch cannot reliably build the solution.

    Currently, there is no way to prevent NCrunch from resolving the AssemblyVersion of each project and this causes problems with inconsistencies and NCrunch reporting build errors because MSBuild is expecting a different version of the assembly to the one provided.

    The current alternative to this involves polluting non-test project files with NCrunch-related hacks, which is not very clean.

    In order to resolve this issue, I suggest that a setting feature be added to NCrunch which allows AssemblyVersion resolution to be disabled.

  8. Add 'Collapse All' and 'Expand All' buttons in the UI which would allow me to collapse all the test groupings with 1 click

    It's quite time consuming collapsing the test groupings. I often do this when I want to hone in on a specific project but without loosing complete visibility of the rest. At present I have to perform lots and lots of separate mouse clicks to condence the test groups down - and kind of loose the will to live in the process

  9. Endlessly Churn While Logged out

    I'd like to keep Visual Studio open, log out of my account while keeping the machine on, and have NCrunch run Endless Churn in the background.

  10. White color for "lines covered by passing tests"

    I have tried using the color white for marking lines covered by passing tests, so that I only get highlights on lines of code needing my attention.

    However, when setting anything above 224 it switches back to black, probably some kind of contrast code that kicks in. Could I ask for an option to turn this behavior off, so that if I want white color, I can get white color?

  11. Add coverage markers to the Find Results Window

    When searching for something in the project file, it would be nice to be able to see whether or not the line in the find results window is covered by a test.

    For instance, I know the piece I'm currently testing is sensitive to the use of DateTime.Now so I need to search all places where DateTime.Now is called and then browse to the code to see if the failing test used that instance in the search results.

  13. Churn Mode - More fine grained statistics for test columns

    When running churn mode I am interested in "Total test executions" i,.e. how many time test has been run in current churn mode, and "Total execution time" i.e. how long the churn mode has been going on (i.e. has it spent 1 minute or 30 minutes).

    This so I know, when I decide cancel, that I ran it for e.g. 10 000 iterations and/or in 10 minutes so next time I want to "churn it" I get a hint how long I need to churn it .

  14. In Tests window, include analyze time in "Last execution time" for test projects

    For test projects, the "Last execution time" seems to contain the build time, where "Cumulative Build time" (I assume) aggregates these figures.
    Say I have some projects with a build time of 20s, and analyze time of 30s before any test is run, I would like build+analyze time as a column, so I can spot test projects being overall bottlenecks.
    Since analyze time is part of my "sit and wait" period, I get a better overview of which projects are bottle necks if these durations are inccluded in metrics, and can tell which projects I need to split into smaller…

  15. Goto TestCaseSourceAttribute's source from Tests window.

    I would be nice if it was possible to opt-in to change behavior of the context menu "Go to selected test" in that way:

    With NUnit, one can write:

    public static IEnumerable<TestCaseData> MyTestCaseSourceMethodName()
    {
    // return test cases...
    }

    [TestCaseSource("MyTestCaseSourceMethodName")]
    public void MyTest(int someArgument)
    {
    // do test...
    }

    The test case factory method can be an separate (static) class.
    In my case, I have a test with several dozens of test cases.

    When a test fails, I can easily go to the failing test implementation, but I cannot easily find the culprit test case.

  16. Allow for easy command-line installation (e.g. Chocolatey)

    Our development machines are built via PowerShell script, which is a very flexible and maintainable way of scaling to many developers. The scripts rely heavily on Chocolatey packages to install software, but unfortunately the unofficial Chocolatey package for the NCrunch Visual Studio plugin is not reliably updated and does not cope well with upgrades. Also, there is no command-line NCrunch package.

    Given that Chocolatey packages are relatively simple wrappers around the existing product installers, it would be great if you could work with the existing package maintainer to improve the existing package, and create a package for the command-line application.

  17. Time limit option for Churn mode

    I would like to be able to Churn tests for x seconds/minutes and if it hasn't failed within that time stop churning.

    This so after I have fixed a failing test, which I know fails in churn mode within x seconds, I don't want to run "Churn until it fails" but rather set a time period I know should be sufficient to reproduce it.

  18. Don't show "NCrunch Client Disabled" as an error in red

    When I try to connect to an NCrunch grid node and get "NCrunch Client DIsabled" in red text, my first impulse is to troubleshoot. Is it a firewall problem? Bad password? Something else?

    Then it clicks...client. I don't have NCrunch enabled in my current Visual Studio solution (or maybe I don't even have a solution loaded yet).

    Well, obviously NCrunch won't send anything to the node if there's nothing to send. This isn't really an error, per se, so I don't think NCrunch should show the message in red in this case.

  19. Toolbar button for "Run Selected Test(s) In Existing Process"

    I often have failing tests in my test window that I want to re-run in existing process (if there is one), e.g. when modifying database the tests are hitting.
    Today I must go via RMB->Advanced, rather than just clicking a toolbar button (similar what exists with "run test(s) in new process".

  20. History of work session

    I'd like to be able to see the history of my work session, meaning at the end of the day I'd like to see visually when my code was compiling, when my tests were all green.
    The purpose is to be able to identify if I spend a lot of time in those states and try to reduce that time.
    It would be useful for self-improvement or coaching.
