3.3.2. Unit tests

There is a fair number of unit testing approaches and frameworks for .NET and Sitecore, but as with other technologies and methodologies, Helix does not dictate which to choose. We do emphasise the value of adding unit tests to your business logic, and highly encourage the general practice.

On disk, unit test projects should be contained in the /tests folder below the module folder. In Visual Studio the unit test project should be in the same Visual Studio solution as the corresponding module projects and contained with the module solution folder.

Habitat Example

Unit Tests in Habitat are developed as Arrange-Act-Assert and uses the following modules:

Example of a Habitat unit test for Sitecore.Feature.Language.LanguageRepository:

public class LanguageRepositoryTests
    public void GetActive_ShouldReturnLanguageModelForContextLanguage(Db db, [Content] DbItem item)
        var contextItem = db.GetItem(item.ID);
        Context.Item = contextItem;
        var activeLanguage = LanguageRepository.GetActive();
