Create a Project

The Import Project command can be used to create a new project from a settings file.

Create a Project Template

The simplest way to create a project is to export project settings from an existing NCover project, which can be used as a template.

The Export command creates a zip file in JSON format, which can be modified as desired.

Then, use the NCover Import command to load the JSON file and create a new project from those settings.

Process Overview

Here's an overview of whole process:

ncover project-export --project="ProjectName" --file="C:\MyPath\project-settings"

<Modify the exported JSON file to change the project settings>

ncover project-import --project="NewProject" --file="C:\MyPath\project-settings.json" --overwrite

Note: If --overwrite is not used, the command will use the original project name, plus a number.

Sample JSON

Below is a sample JSON file. To import it:

  • Save as a text file.
  • Change file extension to ".json"
  • Load using the ncover project-import syntax above.
