FixtureBase 0.3.2

dotnet add package FixtureBase --version 0.3.2
NuGet\Install-Package FixtureBase -Version 0.3.2
This command is intended to be used within the Package Manager Console in Visual Studio, as it uses the NuGet module's version of Install-Package.
<PackageReference Include="FixtureBase" Version="0.3.2" />
For projects that support PackageReference, copy this XML node into the project file to reference the package.
paket add FixtureBase --version 0.3.2
#r "nuget: FixtureBase, 0.3.2"
#r directive can be used in F# Interactive and Polyglot Notebooks. Copy this into the interactive tool or source code of the script to reference the package.

Don't spend hours writing code to mock a dozen dependencies, and more hours debugging it. Just write your test code, and let FixtureBase create the dependencies for you.

FixtureBase constructs your UnitUnderTest to test your codebase end-to-end, with external dependencies auto-faked and automatically injected in just the right place; even constructor dependencies that are several layers deep.

You just write your tests:

public class FixtureBaseExample : FixtureBaseWithDbAndHttpFor<AUseCase>
    public void UUTSendsDataToDb()
        var newDatum = new Datum{Id=99, Name="New!" };



    public void UUTreturnsDataFromDbQuerySingleColumn()
        var dbData = new[] { "row1", "row2", "row3", "row4"};


    public async Task UUTGetHttpReturnsDataFromService()
        var contentFromService = "IGotThis!";
            .Setup(m => true)
            .Returns(new HttpResponseMessage(HttpStatusCode.OK) {Content = new StringContent(contentFromService)});

        (await UnitUnderTest.GetHttp()).ShouldBe(contentFromService);

  • Circular construction — new WrapperClass(new WrapperClass(new ...)) isn't currently handled by the default ruleset. Workaround: Create it manually and use [ActivateUsingInstance()] to point to it.

The included examples demonstrate FixtureBases for applications which depend on Ado.Net IDbConnections and on HttpClient network connections.
