A new toy – .NET Demon

I’d like to present a new tool for .NET Developers that we’ve been cooking up in the Red Gate .NET team. It’s only a beta at the moment, but it works for most people.

.NET Demon Beta

It’s a Visual Studio extension that cuts the time you spend waiting to find whether your code is right. It does this by:

  • Continuous testing (running your NUnit tests as you type)
  • Continuous compilation (so you can start running instantly because your code is already compiled)
  • Inline code coverage (so you know which tests are covering the code you’re editing, and if they start failing)
  • Continuous save (so you don’t have to press ctrl-S ever again)

Let me know what you think of it!
