VSTS PowerShell

While implementing CI for one of the project, I implemented code quality check using Resharper Code Quality Analysis task. This task can fail the build, but this task will not generate a report. Since this task is internally using Inspectcode.exe, it will be able to generate the output XML file. In this post, I am writing a simple PowerShell script, which can be used as task, which will generate html report.

.NET Core CodeCoverage Coverlet

Few days back I wrote a post about code coverage in ASP.NET Core. In that post I was using Visual Studio 2017 Enterprise, which doesn’t support Linux or Mac and it is costly. Later I found one alternative, Coverlet - Coverlet is a cross platform code coverage library for .NET Core, with support for line, branch and method coverage. Coverlet integrates with the MSBuild system, so it doesn’t require any additional setup other than including the NuGet package in the unit test project. It integrates with the dotnet test infrastructure built into the .NET Core CLI and when enabled, will automatically generate coverage results after tests are run.
