Start new SpecFlow projects with our Visual Studio Templates

You probably noticed, that in the last weeks we focused on making the start with SpecFlow easier. We created an additional “Getting Started”- Guide and we redid our complete documentation pages.

The latest addition to these efforts is our new project wizard integrated into the SpecFlow for Visual Studio Extension (with version 2019.0.60 or later). If you don’t find it, check if you are using the latest version of the Visual Studio extension.

With this new project wizard, creating a new SpecFlow project only takes seconds, instead of multiple minutes as before (and yes, we also needed that long).

The steps to create a new project are the following now:

  1. In Visual Studio, create a new project and search for SpecFlow

2. Select SpecFlow Project and press Next
3. Enter your project name and location and press Create

5. Configure your .NET version and unit test framework and press Create

Create SpecFlow Project Wizard

5. The project is created with all required NuGet packages
6. Start using SpecFlow in your project

This is the quickest way to create a new SpecFlow project in Visual Studio 2017 and Visual Studio 2019.
If you are using another IDE, you can use our .NET CLI templates to create new projects.

We hope, that you like this new, quick and easy way to create SpecFlow projects as much as we do. If you find an issue or want to give feedback for it, please create a new issue on GitHub.
