Ever since NCrunch had gone commercial I searched for a cheaper alternative and some time ago I came across a great article named “Building .NET Coverage Tool”. After reading the article I decided to try to implement a similar tool that I named AutoCover.

At the moment AutoCover really limited but I’d like to share it with everyone and see what happens. The 0.0.1 Alpha features are:

  • Continuous building and testing when a file is saved (currently only MS Tests are supported).
  • Smart testing: only the tests that impact the edited file are rerun.
  • Smart instrumentation: only new assemblies are instrumented at every run.
  • Code highlighting: immediate feedback about your code’s coverage.

If you’re interested you can visit the official CodePlex page and read the documentation.
