NUnit 3 Test Project Template for dotnet new CLI

Status
nuget NUnit 3 Test Project Template for dotnet-new CLI
Windows Build status
Linux & Mac OSX Build Status

This repository contains a set of project and item templates to be used when creating projects from .NET Core dotnet new command line interface (C#, F# and Visual Basic project templates are supported).

Currently, it contains a project template for a NUnit test library targeting .NET Core.

Installation

To install NUnit Project and Item Templates from nuget, run command:

dotnet new -i NUnit3.DotNetNew.Template

Usage

Project Templates

To create new NUnit library project from template, run:

dotnet new nunit

By default it will create NUnit Test Project targeted to netcoreapp2.1. You can specify --framework command line switch to change targeting:

dotnet new nunit --framework netcoreapp1.1

To specify new folder name for your NUnit Test Project you can use -n switch. Following command will create NUnit-Tests folder and will generate NUnit Test Project there:

dotnet new nunit -n NUnit-Tests --framework netcoreapp1.0

If you'd like to create F# or VB test project, you can specify project language with -lang switch:

dotnet new nunit -lang F#
dotnet new nunit -lang VB

Note that VB doesn't support dashes in project name. If you have dotnet-new-nunit-example.vbproj test project, then you'll get compiler error like this:

vbc : error BC30113: 'dotnet-new-nunit-example' is not a valid name and cannot be used as the root namespace name. [/home/hal/git/dotnet-new-nunit-example/dotnet-new-nunit-example.vbproj]

To workaround this compiler error, rename your project so that it contained no dashes.

Item templates

To create new C# NUnit test fixture class (with name of folder where it will be created), run:

dotnet new nunit-test

You can specify filename of test fixture class with -n or --name parameter:

dotnet new nunit-test -n MyTestFixture

Unfortunately, this command will create file MyTestFixture\MyTestFixture.cs relatively of current directory.

You can create file MyTestFixture.cs in current directory by overriding output directory with -o or --output parameter:

dotnet new nunit-test -n MyTestFixture -o .

If you'd like to create F# or VB test fixture class, you can specify project language with -lang switch:

dotnet new nunit-test -lang F#
dotnet new nunit-test -lang VB
