  • Optimizing C# code analysis for quicker .NET compilation
    4 projects | | 14 Nov 2023
    Several well-known NuGet packages such as, FluentAssertions, StyleCop, Entity Framework Core, and others include by default a significant number of Roslyn analyzers. They help you adhere to the conventions and best practices of these libraries.
  • Integration testing in Umbraco 10+: Validating document types
    1 project | | 3 Oct 2023
    Most of my rules apply to document types, so let's build some tests for document types. We start by creating a new test class and a new test function and getting a list of all document types. This test is created using xUnit and FluentAssertions:

  • Fluent Assertions: Fluently Assert the Result of .NET Tests
    3 projects | | 11 Jul 2023
    This library extends the traditional assertions provided by frameworks like MSTest, NUnit, or XUnit by offering a more extensive set of extension methods. Fluent Assertions supports a wide range of types like collections, strings, and objects and even allows for more advanced assertions like throwing exceptions.

    The git repo has other runners. AssemblyRunner appears to be the best fit for an already compiled tests project, but there is a runner that can be wrapped into an MSBuild task for example.
  • Setting up a simple testing project with C#

    At this point you're going to see a familiar screen asking you to select a project. Here we're looking for a test project. By default, Visual Studio gives you access to 3 different testing frameworks based on your choice of project. These are MSTest, XUnit and NUnit. Ultimately, all 3 of these testing accomplish the same thing, and I've worked with all of them at various points in my career. The difference is mainly in exact syntax and documentation. Although, it's generally considered that MSTest is a little "older" than NUnit or XUnit, so I tend to see it less now. For the purposes of this demo, I'm going to go with NUnit:

    Use a testing framework: Utilize a testing framework like NUnit, xUnit, or MSTest to create, organize, and run your tests. These frameworks provide a consistent way to write tests, generate test reports, and integrate with continuous integration tools.

What are some alternatives?

When comparing Moq and xUnit you can also consider the following projects:

FakeItEasy - The easy mocking library for .NET

Shouldly - Should testing for .NET—the way assertions should be!

NSubstitute - A friendly substitute for .NET mocking libraries.

NUnit - NUnit Framework

Bogus - :card_index: A simple fake data generator for C#, F#, and VB.NET. Based on and ported from the famed faker.js.

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.

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.

MSTest - MSTest framework and adapter

Expecto - A smooth testing lib for F#. APIs made for humans! Strong testing methodologies for everyone!
