Test Explorer UI


#1

Is there any chance of getting a Test Adapter to allow automatic unit testing in Julia with the Test Explorer extension?


#2

In theory, maybe, but I don’t think anyone is working actively on that right now…PRs certainly welcome!


#3

@ZacLN sent me this example of using JuliaCST parser tech (which is the brains of the VS code plug in)
to detect testsets:

You can use this kinda stuff to find testsets and then also to workout which testsets can be run independently.

That would form the basis of a great unit testing UI system.
idk if that is what Test Explorer does.


#4

Test Explorer is a Node.js program, and the Julia plugin would probably have to be at least partly in javascript to work with the Node.js code.


#5

Large parts of the julia extension are written in TypeScript, really only the language server and some other smaller parts are written in julia.
