Unit Tests without leaving the keyboard
I like the Roy Osherove blog: Five Whys, Leadership in software teams.
Follow up on those two posts “How to measure programmer productivity using TDD Katas” or “Be Productive and Go Mouseless”. I would like to share a little keyboard shortcut which save me quite some time on my daily developments.
As you might know I am a fan of ReSharper and when I am doing Test Driven Development I hate having to switch from keyboard to mouse to run the test I just wrote. So searching for ReSharper Keyboard command I found Resharper_UnitTest_ContextRun which I assign to the Ctrl+Shift+<.
Now I can run the unit test I just wrote with just a combination of keys which are really near to each other so really easy!
The bonus of this command is that if I have the cursor in one unit test in a TestFixture class then it will run that particular test, but if I have the cursor out of any unit test method it will run all tests of that TextFixture. Very efficient!
