Discover the powerful Launchable extension for Visual Studio Code, running a subset of tests to speed up feedback on your changes.
Learn how to use the extension and enhance your local development environment.
Visual Studio Code (VS Code) is a powerful and versatile code editor. Whether you're a seasoned developer or just starting your coding journey, Visual Studio Code offers an efficient coding experience. With its extensive array of features, intelligent code suggestions, and vast ecosystem of extensions, VS Code empowers developers to write code with ease and precision.
That’s why we’re excited to share the Launchable Visual Studio Code extension, allowing you to run a data-driven subset of tests directly in your local environment.
The Launchable extension offers several benefits that significantly enhance your testing experience:
Rapid Feedback: Get faster feedback about your changes by immediately running tests that are worth running.
Seamless Integration: Run a subset of tests directly in Visual Studio Code without writing any Launchable CLI commands.
Rich Test Results: Check your test results conveniently through the user-friendly Launchable Web view.
The Launchable Visual Studio Code extension is ideal for when you want to run tests efficiently in a short time in your local development environment.
For instance, let's say you made a change to your application. Then, you'll need to run tests to check if your change affects other parts. However, running all tests take a long time. This is stressful, and you might have to run it again if some tests are failed.
With Launchable Predictive Test Selection, you can run only relevant tests, saving time. And now, with the Launchable Visual Studio Code extension, you can use Predictive Test Selection on your local machine, outside CI.
