Make your .NET Code Beautiful with NDepend: Measure quality with metrics, see design with diagrams and enforce decisions with code rules, right into Visual Studio.
Only NDepend offers Smart Technical Debt Estimation live in Visual Studio: Code rules are defined through C# LINQ queries that contain also formulas to estimate each issue cost-to-fix and severity. It cannot be made easier to customize and create your own rules.
Azure DevOps / TFS Powerful Extension: Quality is checked both in Visual Studio and in the Continuous Integration process (more on this extension here).
Visualize code dependencies with NDepend: Browse and understand complex code architecture, and get advice on how to better structure your application. Both a live Dependency Graph and a live Dependency Structure Matrix (DSM) tools are provided.
Get meaningful reports about your code with NDepend: Integrate NDepend into your build process (any technology, VSTS, TFS, TeamCity, SonarQube, jenkins...) and share detailed reports that reflect the status of your code base.
Notice that since version 2021.2.0 reports can be generated also on Linux and Mac OS with NDepend running on .NET 5, as explained here.
Quality Gates check:
Prevent Code Smells with Static Analysis that focus on recent changes:
Explore the technical debt and the issues-set: Code, diff, progress, issues, rules status, with NDepend Code as Data is a reality: everything can be queried live in Visual Studio.
Monitor trending and evolution with NDepend: Visualize the team progress through most relevant code metrics printed on smart trend charts.
Code review diff with NDepend: Establish a base line of your code base and focus your improvement efforts on added and changed code.
Explore code coverage by tests of your application with ndepend: A metric view is provided and two metrics can be visualized at the same time, like for example # lines of code and % code coverage. Doing so offers a unique way to explore code coverage by tests and see where in your code base more tests are needed. Code coverage data can be imported from Visual Studio coverage tooling, from Jetbrains dotTrace and from NCover.
