OSS Power-Ups: Verify
This is the sixth episode of our series of OSS Power-Ups, where we put a spotlight on open-source .NET projects. Verify is a snapshot tool that enables the assertion of complex data models and documents. Integrating with major test frameworks like xUnit, NUnit, and MSTest, it is called on test results during the assertion phase. Verify serializes the results and stores them so-called snapshot files that match the test name. On the next test execution, the new results are compared to the previously accepted snapshots. Tests will fail if the two snapshots do not match: either the change is unexpected, or the reference snapshot needs to be updated to the new result. Utilities are provided to streamline compatibility with a variety of libraries and technologies including Blazor, SQL Server, EntityFramework, and ASP.NET Core. One more surprise utility will be revealed during our webinar!
Don’t miss this opportunity to learn about snapshot testing in unforeseen scenarios!
