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.
