Stars - the number of stars that a project has on GitHub. Growth - month over month growth in stars.
Activity is a relative number indicating how actively a project is being developed. Recent commits have higher weight than older ones.
For example, an activity of 9.0 indicates that a project is amongst the top 10% of the most actively developed projects that we are tracking.
We haven't tracked posts mentioning NBuilder yet.
Tracking mentions began in Dec 2020.

A Tale of 2 Codebases (Part 2 of 4): Testability
3 projects | dev.to | 5 Oct 2022
Both projects use similar testing infrastructure. I write unit tests in C# using XUnit.net. I frequently use mock objects in testing, and MOQ is my tool of choice. I utilize continuous testing and coverage analysis through Rider. I do not have specific objectives for code coverage. When writing complicated algorithms, I frequently shoot for 100% coverage of the algorithm. I test simple properties inconsistently, and frequently do not test guard clauses.

But the reality is that I don't really write my tests with it. Toss on the MSTest attributes as needed of course. But all the testing code itself is FluentAssertions with a bit of Moq. (Though I find rarely need to use Moq/mocking anymore -- scandalous, I know.)
How do you deal with faking deeply-nested objects when testing?

This looks like the kind of thing Moq could handle with LINQ to Mocks.

> edit: one more qualm, the Mockito equivalent for C#, NSubstitute, cannot mock a concrete class, only an interface.
I've never heard of NSubstitute (that doesn't mean it's bad), but most places I've worked at typically use Moq (https://github.com/moq/moq4) which does support interfaces and classes.
Never written tests. Is there a simple CRUD project with EF Core I can learn from?

Have you tried Moq?
What are some alternatives?
FakeItEasy - The easy mocking library for .NET
NSubstitute - A friendly substitute for .NET mocking libraries.
Bogus - :card_index: A simple fake data generator for C#, F#, and VB.NET. Based on and ported from the famed faker.js.
AutoFixture - AutoFixture is an open source library for .NET designed to minimize the 'Arrange' phase of your unit tests in order to maximize maintainability. Its primary goal is to allow developers to focus on what is being tested rather than how to setup the test scenario, by making it easier to create object graphs containing test data.
Fluent Assertions - A very extensive set of extension methods that allow you to more naturally specify the expected outcome of a TDD or BDD-style unit tests. Targets .NET Framework 4.7, as well as .NET Core 2.1, .NET Core 3.0, .NET 6, .NET Standard 2.0 and 2.1. Supports the unit test frameworks MSTest2, NUnit3, XUnit2, MSpec, and NSpec3.
AutoMoq - Auto mocking provider for Moq.
xUnit - xUnit.net is a free, open source, community-focused unit testing tool for .NET.
NUnit - NUnit 3 Framework
WireMock.Net - WireMock.Net is a flexible product for stubbing and mocking web HTTP responses using advanced request matching and response templating. Based on the functionality from http://WireMock.org, but extended with more functionality.
MSTest - MSTest framework and adapter
