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.
Show HN: A C# library to help you enforce a Given-When-Then structured Unit test
2 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 29 Aug 2021
Looks like a similar concept to https://github.com/machine/machine.specifications which I used many years ago to try and achieve BDD style unit testing.
One point to note from your introduction was the following statement:
We haven't tracked posts mentioning SpecFlow yet.
Tracking mentions began in Dec 2020.
What are some alternatives?
xBehave.net - ✖ An xUnit.net extension for describing each step in a test with natural language.
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.
BDDfy - BDDfy is the simplest BDD framework EVER!
Xunit.Gherkin.Quick - BDD in .NET Core - using Xunit and Gherkin (compatible with both .NET Core and .NET)
LightBDD - BDD framework allowing to create easy to read and maintain tests.
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.
SpecsFor - SpecsFor is a light-weight Behavior-Driven Development framework that focuses on ease of use for *developers* by minimizing testing friction.
NSpec - A battle hardened testing framework for C# that's heavily inspired by Mocha and RSpec.
xUnit - xUnit.net is a free, open source, community-focused unit testing tool for the .NET Framework.
NUnit - NUnit 3 Framework
Fine Code Coverage - Visualize unit test code coverage easily for free in Visual Studio Community Edition (and other editions too)
Bogus - :card_index: A simple fake data generator for C#, F#, and VB.NET. Based on and ported from the famed faker.js.
