Make AppVeyor aware of NUnit3 test results

Can you make AppVeyor recognize NUnit3 test results?

I saw on another post that using "--result=TestResult.xml;format=AppVeyor" should work but it errors saying "Unknown result format: AppVeyor" when I use the latest NUnit3.ConsoleRunner 3.2.1 that I have checked into my repo.

Example build with NUnit3 Console Runner.

    Hi Justin,

    NUnit 3 doesn't have built-in integration with AppVeyor (you can submit an issue on NUnit project page and ask for the integration).

    However, current integration is made by mean of custom logger.

    You can use this PS script to install logger into your NUnit3 folder:

    $nunitPath = "$env:SYSTEMDRIVE\Tools\NUnit3"
    $zipPath = "$($env:USERPROFILE)\"
    (New-Object Net.WebClient).DownloadFile('', $zipPath)
    7z x $zipPath -y -o"$nunitPath\bin\addins" | Out-Null
    Move-Item "$nunitPath\bin\addins\appveyor.addins" "$nunitPath\bin\appveyor.addins"

    Change first line to point to your NUnit location.

    Awesome. Thanks for the response. For those interested, I downloaded the ZIP:

    and dropped the files in NUnit.ConsoleRunner/tools. I changed nunit.appveyor.addins to point to Appveyor.NUnit3ResultWriter.dll instead of addins\Appveyor.NUnit3ResultWriter.dll.

    Then I am able to do
    nunit3-console.exe MyApp.Tests.Dll --result="TestResult.xml" --result="TestResultAppVeyor.xml;format=AppVeyor"}

    This gives the standard NUnit3 results and also the AppVeyor formatted results.

    When run locally, it simply says
    "Sending test results to AppVeyor...Skipped - APPVEYOR_URL environment variable was not found."

    The solution with Appveyor.NUnit3ResultWriter addin works very well, however it requires adding dlls to the source control, so I would like to ask if you could make a nuget package for Appveyor.NUnit3ResultWriter and upload it to please?

    Currently, real-time logging plugin is coming with nunit3-console available on build workers. No need to download it anymore.
