My new favourite tool: NCrunch

    New release of NCrunch announced, so I though I'd give it a go on my updated work machine (lots of RAM now).

    The result?  Fantastic.  Even just the ability to find all the unit tests that exercise the code under the cursor is worth the minor effort of downloading and installing.  Having something that can automatically run tests in the background as you work is even better.

    PS: Not affiliated in any way with NCrunch, just really like the idea behind what it does.

    @Dr Herbie:  Looks interesting.  I'll have to give it a spin. Thanks! Smiley

    Damn shame Microsoft told them to stop supporting the Express Edition of VS. Oh well, I guess people using it don't deserve unit testing.

    @ManipUni: Of course they deserve unit testing, and they have it (in the form of NUnit). The stuff that NCrunch provides is very nice, but not essential.

    I brought this up on C9 before. Microsoft needs to pay this man and put it in VC11 when it ships! Wink There's a few other tools that work in a similar way now, including one from Red Gate (.NET Demon), but NCrunch seems to be far ahead of the competition. Doesn't work for everything... it doesn't like code contracts, which means I can't use it in a few of my projects, but when it does work it's AMAZING.
