Provides realtime test monitoring functionality to NUnit using IPC/Named Pipes, log files, or StdOut.


Choose which configuration you would like to use: NUnit-Console runner or dotnet test. See below for installation/configuration instructions for either way of running tests.


This extension is compatible with both the NUnit-Console runner as well as when using dotnet test however they must be configured differently. Keep in mind NUnit-Console runner does not currently support .Net Core testing, if you need that you should use the dotnet test configuration.

NUnit-Console Configuration

If using the NUnit-Console runner you must place the extension inside the addins/ folder of the installation location of NUnit-Console. Download the latest pre-compiled release. The folder should already exist, and you should place the extension dll's in it's own folder called NUnit.Extension.TestMonitor. Additionally, you must tell NUnit-Console of it's existence by appending to the nunit.bundle.addins file with the following contents:

addins/NUnit.Extension.TestMonitor/NUnit.Extension.TestMonitor.dll      # Include the TestMonitor nUnit extension

If you wish to customize the extension with non-default options (such as enabling file based logging) you can edit the settings file which will be located at addins/NUnit.Extension.TestMonitor/appsettings.json.

Dotnet Test Configuration

If using the dotnet test command to run your tests you should add the Nuget package to your test project.

PM> Install-Package NUnit.Extension.TestMonitor

To customize settings for the extension, you can add an appsettings.json configuration file to your test project and it will be read by the nuget extension. It should contain the following section in the root of your settings file:

  "TestMonitor": {
    // the type of events to emit, can define multiple. Valid options: NamedPipes,StdOut,LogFile
    "EventEmitType": "NamedPipes,StdOut,LogFile",
    // format of the event data. Valid options: json, xml
    "EventFormat": "json",
    // full path to save the log to
    "EventsLogFile": "C:\\logs\\TestMonitor.log",
    // for EventEmitType=StdOut, choose which stream to use. Valid options: StdOut, Trace, Debug, None
    "EventOutputStream": "StdOut"


This plugin offers an IPC/Named Pipes interface so that you may display or log tests in real-time.

Detailed examples will follow once this package is published.
