A Testing library for Blazor components

Published on Wednesday, March 8, 2023

bUnit is a testing library for .NET for testing Blazor components. It is built on top of existing popular frameworks xUnit, NUnit, and MSTests. It enables running tests on Blazor components in the same way as any other test.

Whether you're a seasoned .NET developer or starting with Blazor, bUnit can help you write reliable and maintainable tests for your Blazor components. With its intuitive API and comprehensive documentation, bUnit is a valuable tool for any developer who wants to write high-quality Blazor applications.

bUnit is part of the .NET Foundation.

Do we need to write tests for components?

I like enforcing writing tests for front-end components. Writing tests give developers a unique perspective on how a component is used. We often focus on usability rather than simplicity and code elegance when developing the front end. Component testing keeps us grounded, especially for front-end developers who don't have experience with the back end.

Ok, let's be honest, I like enforcing the writing of any type of test! Unit, integration, API, and E2E tests!
