|Unit Test Generator |
Once you’ve moved to Visual Studio 2012, what’s a dev to do without the Create Unit Tests feature? Based on the high demand on User Voice for this feature to be restored, the Visual Studio ALM Rangers have introduced the Unit Test Generator Visual Studio Extension. The extension adds the “create unit test” feature back, with a focus on automating project creation, adding references and generating stubs, extensibility, and targeting of multiple test frameworks.We envision the following benefits for the Visual Studio community:
- Quickly get to writing test code, not having to worry about setting up projects and files.
- Customize the unit test code generation using a context menu, ensuring that generated tests better match your naming schemes.
- Generate unit test stubs against multiple frameworks so that you can use any framework you like.
