should - Should Assertion Library

SpecFlow - #1 .NET BDD Framework. SpecFlow automates your testing & works with your existing code. Find Bugs before they happen. Behavior Driven Development helps developers, testers, and business representatives to get a better understanding of their collaboration

NUnit - NUnit 3 Framework

Moq - Repo for managing Moq 4.x

NFluent - Smooth your .NET TDD experience with NFluent! NFluent is an ergonomic assertion library which aims to fluent your .NET TDD experience (based on simple Check.That() assertion statements). NFluent aims your tests to be fluent to write (with a super-duper-happy 'dot' auto-completion experience), fluent to read (i.e. as close as possible to plain English expression), but also fluent to troubleshoot, in a less-error-prone way comparing to the classical .NET test frameworks. NFluent is also directly inspired by the awesome Java FEST Fluent assertion/reflection library (http://fest.easytesting.org/)

Compare-Net-Objects - What you have been waiting for :+1: Perform a deep compare of any two .NET objects using reflection. Shows the differences between the two objects.

NSubstitute - A friendly substitute for .NET mocking libraries.

Verify - Verify is a snapshot tool that simplifies the assertion of complex data models and documents.
