Creating Your Own Custom Attributes in C# and Retrieving Their Values
3 projects | dev.to | 17 Dec 2022
I was trying to think of an example of where C# attributes might be used in every day life and then it dawned on me: unit testing! If you have ever used a unit test framework such as MSTest, NUnit or xUnit, you will have used attributes in C# to define the classes and methods that you would like the test framework to execute. This is just one example of how you can use attributes to assign metadata to elements of your code.
Generating Code Coverage Metrics for .NET Framework Applications
4 projects | dev.to | 18 Aug 2022
Because I struggled with the initial tests written using MSTest, I converted all the tests to xUnit – some of this was out of sheer comfort with xUnit over MSTest, but also because its OSS product under the .NET Foundation – and I like supporting those.
GoDotTest: C# Testing for Godot with debugging in VSCode and command-line support
3 projects | reddit.com/r/godot | 22 Jun 2022
I didn't want to create "yet another test runner," but I couldn't get any of the existing ones to do everything I needed. It's fairly well known that you can't run or debug xunit tests in a Godot game unless you're using Rider, and since I'm a die-hard VSCode user, I didn't want to make the switch. XUnit also runs tests in parallel by default, which isn't usually what I want in a game-like environment, so it just felt like a poor fit overall.
Reduce your tests cognitive complexity with AutoFixture
3 projects | dev.to | 20 May 2022
The setup here is really minimal, just create a new test project. I'll be using xUnit but NUnit should be fine too.

How to run async method inside a class method

If you're using xUnit for your tests, you can implement the IAsyncLifetime interface it helpfully provides for you.
Clean Architecture Solution Template
2 projects | dev.to | 25 Nov 2021
The projects are all .NET 6 applications with nullable references types and implicit usings enabled. The unit testing projects use Xunit out of the box. There are also support files such as .gitignore, .editorconfig, etc.
Writing tests for CLI tool
3 projects | dev.to | 14 Nov 2021
The testing framework that I chose is XUnit. The first reason is that it is trendy compared to another test framework such as NUnits. I created test methods stub from the existing code by Create Unit Tests command. To use it with Xunit, I have to implement the XUnit.net.TestGenerator extension to my project.

What are some alternatives?
NUnit - NUnit 3 Framework
Shouldly - Should testing for .NET—the way assertions should be!
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.
Moq - Repo for managing Moq 4.x
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.
NSubstitute - A friendly substitute for .NET mocking libraries.
Expecto - A smooth testing lib for F#. APIs made for humans! Strong testing methodologies for everyone!
Machine.Specifications - Machine.Specifications is a Context/Specification framework for .NET that removes language noise and simplifies tests.
vstest - Visual Studio Test Platform is the runner and engine that powers test explorer and vstest.console.
Fixie - Ergonomic Testing for .NET
Bogus - :card_index: A simple fake data generator for C#, F#, and VB.NET. Based on and ported from the famed faker.js.
