Use MSTest for BDD.

Use local functions to structure tests with patterns like:

  • Arrange / Act / Assert
  • Given / When / Then
  • Context / Specification

LoFuUnit.MSTest and related packages makes it convenient for developers to write tests with collaboration & communication in mind.

Tests ✔️

An example of a test with LoFuUnit.MSTest and FluentAssertions:

using FluentAssertions;
using LoFuUnit.MSTest;
using Microsoft.VisualStudio.TestTools.UnitTesting;

namespace LoFuUnitDocs
{
    [TestClass]
    public class AuthenticationTests : LoFuTest
    {
        SecurityService Subject;
        UserToken Token;

        [TestMethod]
        public void Authenticate_admin_users()
        {
            Subject = new SecurityService();

            void when_authenticating_an_admin_user() =>
                Token = Subject.Authenticate("username", "password");

            void should_indicate_the_user_s_role() =>
                Token.Role.Should().Be(Roles.Admin);

            void should_have_a_unique_session_id() =>
                Token.SessionId.Should().NotBeNull();
        }
    }
}

Output:

Authenticate admin users
	when authenticating an admin user
	should indicate the user's role
	should have a unique session id

Test methods can contain local functions that are invoked implicitly. These test functions can perform the arrange, act or assert steps of the test.

The LoFuUnit.MSTest package contains the LoFuTest base class for test fixtures to inherit from. This class defines a method marked with the [TestCleanup] attribute, and it is called after running each test in the test fixture. The TestCleanup method invokes the test functions in the containing test method that was just executed. The invocations will occur in the order that the test functions are declared. If a test function fails, the test method fails directly. Any subsequent test functions in the test method will not be invoked.
