xUnit.net

Testmo works with any test automation tool, including the popular xUnit.net unit testing framework for .NET. This quickstart guide provides an overview of how to report xUnit.net test automation results to Testmo.

Run xUnit.net & generate XML file

xUnit.net can generate JUnit-style XML files, which has become a standard format to exchange test results between tools. You just need to install the popular JunitXml.TestLogger .NET library.
> dotnet test --logger:"junit;LogFilePath=results/test-results.xml"
This will run your tests and automatically write all test results to an XML file in the results directory. You can also configure a different directory or specify any additional regular command line options.

Submit test results to Testmo

To submit your test results to Testmo, you simply use our cross-platform testmo CLI tool. The CLI tool is distributed as an NPM package and is easy to install on any system. Simply install our official @testmo/testmo-cli NPM package:
> npm install -g @testmo/testmo-cli
> testmo -h
Usage: testmo [options] [command]
[...]
We can now send the xUnit.net test results to Testmo. To do this, make sure to generate an API key in Testmo from your profile page. The API key is used to authenticate with Testmo to send the results. We can then use the testmo CLI tool so submit our results (note that we first set the TESTMO_TOKEN variable, which the tool expects):
Windows
Linux
Multiple lines
> set TESTMO_TOKEN=********
> testmo automation:run:submit --instance https://<your-name>.testmo.net --project-id 1 --name "xUnit test run" --source "unittests" --results results/*.xml
On Linux, the command line uses a slightly different syntax to set a variable:
$ export TESTMO_TOKEN=********
$ testmo automation:run:submit --instance https://<your-name>.testmo.net --project-id 1 --name 'xUnit test run' --source 'unittests' --results results/*.xml
If you want to run the command with multiple lines to make it easier to read, use the following format on Windows:
> set TESTMO_TOKEN=********
> testmo automation:run:submit ^
--instance https://<your-name>.testmo.net ^
--project-id 1 ^
--name "xUnit test run" ^
--source "unittests" ^
--results results/*.xml
And you can use the following format on Linux:
$ export TESTMO_TOKEN=********
$ testmo automation:run:submit \
--instance https://<your-name>.testmo.net \
--project-id 1 \
--name 'xUnit test run' \
--source 'unittests' \
--results results/*.xml
See command output
That's it! 🎉 This will automatically analyze the XML result file, create a new test run in Testmo, submit all tests & results and mark the run as completed. There's no need to manually create any tests, map tests or IDs or build any custom API code. Everything is handled automatically for you.

Bonus: Launch xUnit.net with Testmo CLI

In the above example, we first launched xUnit.net to generate the XML file and then used our CLI tool to submit the results in a second step. As an improvement to the above example, we can ask our CLI tool to launch xUnit.net (testmo then starts and waits for xUnit.net to finish). This has the following additional benefits:
a) Capture full console output and send it to Testmo b) Accurately measure test times c) Record the xUnit.net exit code
