It provides a new way to execute unit testing automatically without invoking the test runner. It works on MSTEST, NUNIT, and XUNIT testing framework.

  • Manually run the test through test explorer

With Live Unit Testing

  • Automatically run unit testing especially the fail one
  • On screen testing result (the testing result displayed in the editor)
