Unit Testing Improvements in ReSharper 7July 27th, 2012 by Dmitri Nesteruk
The ReSharper unit test runner has become an indispensable part of ReSharper. The ability to run and debug tests from a location in code, together with an integrated unit test runner make testing with ReSharper a streamlined and pleasant experience, and a rich variety of plug-ins supporting many popular unit test frameworks makes ReSharper relevant whatever unit testing framework you choose.
Here is an overview of some of the new unit testing features that we are shipping in ReSharper 7.
Naturally, just like any other type of unit tests, Jasmine tests are presented in the ReSharper unit test runner:
PhantomJS Test Runner
The new version of ReSharper comes with support for the
TestCaseSource attribute. This attribute lets test authors define external variables that store test data. For example:
Since the argument to the attribute references a variable by name, ReSharper comes with appropriate inspections…
…as well as code completion:
As of this release, ReSharper supports NUnit version 2.6 by default.
Support for Other Frameworks
If you are looking for a test framework that isn’t supported by ReSharper out of the box, don’t worry – many plugin authors have already prepared the corresponding ReSharper plug-ins. Frameworks supported by ReSharper plugins today include AgUnit, Gallio/MbUnit, MSpec, and XUnit.
That’s it — happy coding! (And testing, of course.)
