SubSpec available on NuGet

May 27, 2011 Leave a comment

SubSpec is finally available as a NuGet package. See¬†on how to get started with NuGet. Once you have NuGet installed, it’s a simple matter of running¬†Install-Package SubSpec or Install-Package SubSpec.Silverlight from the Package Manager console to get SubSpec integrated into your project.

Integrated into your project you said? You mean “get the dll and reference it”? No, in fact, deployment as a separate dll is a thing of the past for SubSpec. SubSpec is an extremely streamlined extension of xUnit and as such it fits into less than 500 lines of C# (excluding xmlDocs). This approach has several advantages:

  1. Faster builds, 500 lines of C# are faster to compile than resolving and linking against a library
  2. It fosters the creation of extensions (which is extremely common, at least in my usage of it)
  3. No need to get the source separately, you already have it!
  4. Experimental extensions can be easily shared as single files too, such as Thesis, AutoFixture integration…

I hope you like the new packages, please feel free to upvote SubSpec and SubSpec.Silverlight on the NuGet gallery and feel encouraged to write a review.
