I just shipped a test build of add-in at GitHub, which enables Visual Studio for Mac to run xUnit unit test cases.

So what are the steps to build such an add-in? Below I try to show some technical details.

Live Unit Testing automatically runs any impacted unit tests in the background and shows your code coverage live in Visual Studio. As you modify your code, Live Unit Testing lets you know if your code changes are covered by existing tests or if you need to write new tests. Get gentle reminders to write new tests as you type. Visual Studio 2019 for Mac version 8.7 is available today and includes support for gRPC / OpenAPI client generation and improved unit testing integration. Additionally, it includes several improvements for Xamarin developers, including Xamarin.Forms 4.8 Support. This release also includes initial support for macOS Big Sur.

Nunit provides three different runners, which may be used to load and run your tests. The console runner, nunit-console.exe, is used for batch execution. Python testing in Visual Studio Code. The Python extension supports testing with Python's built-in unittest framework as well as pytest. Nose is also supported, although the framework itself is in maintenance mode. After enabling a test framework, use the Python: Discover Tests command to scan the project for tests according to the discovery patterns of the currently selected test framework.

Microsoft announced this new IDE last year at Connect 2016 keynote, which is a surprise for many developers. But if we check this IDE further, easily we can see it is not a surprise at all.

  • This IDE is based on MonoDevelop/Xamarin Studio, which has a very long history already.
  • It reuses many useful ingredients from Visual Studio itself, such as the editor experience.

Extension Authoring

Previously to develop extensions for MonoDevelop/Xamarin Studio, we need to target the 5.x or 6.x profiles of MonoDevelop core binaries. That’s why for add-in there are two branches, 5.0 and 6.0.

The core assemblies have significant differences in editor related APIs, due to the big upgrade in Xamarin Studio 6.x. And now again, Visual Studio for Mac (based on MonoDevelop 7.x) requires a new branch.

So to create a new add-in, you can always get start from the official guide for Xamarin Studio,Extending Xamarin Studio with Add-Ins

Replace all texts of “Xamarin Studio” with “Visual Studio for Mac”, and you should be able to get Addin Maker (>=1.3.4) installed and a sample add-in created.

Note that MonoDevelop.Addins NuGet package should be upgraded to 0.3.9 and above, so that debugging add-ins can be enabled.

Then a .mpack file would be generated and everyone can manually add it to Visual Studio for Mac once you share it publicly.

Note that once the add-in repository for Visual Studio for Mac is alive, you don’t need to share .mpack file in this way.

Visual Studio Community For Mac

Now Microsoft/Xamarin has opened up the addin feed for Visual Studio for Mac, so as publisher you should use to publish your addin. Users then use the integrated Extension Manager to search and install.
