setup Chutzpah for running unit test

Chutzpah is a open source javascript test runner that allows you to run unit test using qunit, jasmine, mocha, coffeescript and most importantly typescript.

What in the world are you using Chutzpah for unit testing? Well, many teams started to writing their
angularjs code in typescript.

In this post, we're going to run our typescript unit test. First we need to setup our tool.

1. install Chutzpah test runner context menu extension - this allows you to right click on a file and runs a test. Life is easy.

Restart  your visual studio and you're good to go.

2. You probably need to setup jasmine as your unit testing framework. For more information, please  following instruction here.

Lets start with configuring our test runner and we're going to go with jasmine. Let's create new file called chutzpah.json and it should have the following contents :-

Lets create a simple typescript test and you can right click on it to run a unit test.

Debugging jasmine unit test

To debug unit test in jasmine using Chutzpah, you need to right click on the typescript test and then choose "open in browser". Go to chrome developer tool mode, proceed to  'Sources' and then you look for "yourUnitTest.test.js" file as shown below :-

Place a breakpoint and then hit refresh. You are now in debug mode - easy! :)

OpenCover code coverage for .Net Core

I know there are many post out there getting code coverage for .dotnetcore. I'm using opencover to address this needs.

In case, you do no want to use opencover and wanted to stick with vs2015 code coverage, you can try to copy Microsoft.VisualStudio.CodeCoverage.Shim.dll from C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 14.0\Team Tools\Dynamic Code Coverage Tools\coreclr\ and drop it into your project "bin\Debug\netcoreapp1.0" folder.  Please note : you need to be on VS2015 Enterprise to do this. 

To get started, I guess we need to add OpenCover and ReportGenerator for our test projects, as shown in diagram below :-

In dotnetcore, we run test project using "dotnet test" (assuming you are in the test project folder - if not please go there)  So we add this …
