NCrunch for Visual Studio 2008-2019

It intelligently runs automated tests so that you don't have to, and gives you a huge amount of useful information about your tested code, such as code coverage and performance metrics, inline in your IDE while you type.

Automatic Concurrent Testing
A normal cycle of test driven development makes you stop to run your tests so often that it's just plain painful. Think about the steps you usually go through:

Write the test
Stop and run the test
Write the code under test
Stop and run tests
Refactor the code under test
Stop and run tests
Drink some coffee and repeat

NCrunch takes away all the pain and leaves a warm happy feeling behind. So you end up with:

Write the test
Write the code under test
Refactor the code under test
Be happy, drink some coffee and repeat!

Code Coverage
NCrunch collects test coverage for your code while it runs your tests.

This is shown next to your code in coloured markers showing which lines the tests touched, with marker colours indicating pass or fail status.

You can also navigate to any covering tests from any line of code, making it easy to see which tests you might impact with a change.

Full code coverage metrics are also available for your entire solution, allowing you to see where your code coverage is heavy and where it's light.

Performance Metrics
NCrunch profiles your tests during their execution to pick up the execution time of every line of code under test.

Metrics are shown inline conveniently with a tooltip, and 'hot spots' are shown with special colouring on the code coverage markers.

Inline Exception Details
The stack traces of exceptions thrown from your tests are processed by NCrunch and projected over the code coverage markers.

This makes it really easy to spot where your tests went wrong, without the information getting in your way.

No matter where you are in your source code, you'll be able to analyse problems quickly and without fuss.

Intelligent Test Execution
NCrunch tracks all sorts of interesting statistics about your tests, and it uses this information in the most intelligent way possible.

Tests that you have recently impacted with your code changes are highly prioritised for execution.

NCrunch uses a powerful weighting system designed to give you the most important feedback as fast as possible.

Distributed Processing
NCrunch can offload build and test work to other computers for processing.

Tasks are cleanly farmed out to any number of connected machines, forming grids to execute tests.

Grid servers can be shared between developers allowing teams to pool their resources.

Grids can even be scaled into the cloud to maximise testing throughput.

Distributed processing with NCrunch is highly effective, allowing concurrent execution of dozens or possibly even hundreds of tests at any one time.

Release notes for since version v3.27.0.3

This version of NCrunch is compatible with grid nodes running v3.26 and v3.27.
If you are using grid nodes older than v3.26, they must be updated before you can use them with this version.

Added the Time Line report from the Console Tool to the export menu under Visual Studio.

Fixed an issue that was causing the VS debugger to fail to resolve local variables when the source file made use of the 'using'
statement to alias a type in the file.

Added a progress bar to the Tests Window that will show what the current state of the tests is. This enables you to see more
quickly how many tests are failing / passing.

Improved moving the status icon to the right of the window after other extensions get loaded.

Fixed code navigation indexes not being restored correctly after session reset.

Fixed a theming issue with the StatusIcon.

Fixed an issue with the visibility of the Trace Output in the Tests window where not all the text was accessible via the

Fixed a rendering issue on the Exception Coverage popup and Message Tooltip with exception messages containing an ampersand.

Improved keyboard navigation on the exception coverage popup window.

Added Antlr4 project items to NCrunch's auto resolution list.
