.Net Core Projects Code Coverage

Code coverage features are only supported
Visual Studio Ultimate.
Resharper

I tried this approach to generate a report in local and also in Azure DevOps build pipeline.

Step 1:
Add this code coverage library (Go To Package) NuGet package for all test package.

Step 2:
I created a javascript file that does the entire heavy lifting of running unit tests with code coverage and convert to report and open the report.

var commandExists = require('command-exists');
const execSync = require('child_process').execSync;
const rimraf = require('rimraf');
function runCoverageReport() {
console.log('started code coverage');
rimraf.sync('TestResults');
let result = execSync('dotnet test /p:CollectCoverage=true /p:CoverletOutputFormat=cobertura /p:CoverletOutput=./TestResults/');
console.log(result.toString());
console.log('finished code coverage');
}
function generateReport() {
console.log('started report generation');
let result = execSync('reportgenerator "-reports:./**/TestResults/coverage.cobertura.xml" "-targetdir:./TestResults/CoverageReport/"');
console.log(result.toString());
console.log('finished report generation');
}
function openReport() {
const osPlatform = process.platform;
console.log(`opening report for ${osPlatform}`);
if (osPlatform === 'darwin') {
execSync('open ./TestResults/CoverageReport/index.htm')
}
else if (osPlatform === 'win64' || osPlatform === 'win32') {
execSync('start ./TestResults/CoverageReport/index.htm')
}
}
async function main() {
try {
await commandExists('coverlet');
console.log('coverlet command found and running coverage report');
} catch (e) {
console.log('installing coverlet.....');
execSync('dotnet tool install --global coverlet.console');
}
runCoverageReport();
try {
await commandExists('reportgenerator');
console.log('reportgenerator command found and running report');
} catch (e) {
console.log('installing report generator.....');
execSync('dotnet tool install --global dotnet-reportgenerator-globaltool');
}
generateReport();
openReport();
};
main();

Step 3:
You have a couple of options to run this. I always create prefer to create a npm script command in package.json


"scripts" : {
"code:coverage" : "node code-coverage.js"
},
"devDependencies": {
"command-exists": "^1.2.8"
}

Finally
I have tested this both on windows and mac.

One Last Thing

I also integrated this into Azure DevOps build pipeline

For test runner task

Add publish code coverage task and then set the below settings

Happy Coding!
