A productivity enhancer for C# programmers with advanced syntax highlight, Super Quick Info (code tooltip), Smart Bar (contextual toolbar), Navigation Bar, code structure markers on scrollbar, comment tagger, and more.
Codist is a Visual Studio extension which strives to provide better coding experience and productivity for C# programmers.
The advanced syntax highlight function highlights every aspect of C# language elements with diverse styles, including using various font families and text styles, enlarging or shrinking font sizes, changing foreground or background colors and transparency.
The following screenshots of the TestPage.cs file in the source code project demonstrates possible syntax highlight effects in the Light theme.
The font size of type and member declarations can be enlarged, so it is much easier to spot them.
Syntax highlight can be applied to braces and parentheses.
Various syntax identifiers have different styles, temporary elements such as method parameters and local variables are italic, static symbols are underlined.
Comment content can be tagged (e.g. note).
Unnecessary code is marked strike-through.
Keywords are categorized and highlighted with various styles (e.g. abstract and sealed, return and throw, etc.).
Overriding members (such as ToString) can be painted with gradient background color, so at a glance we know that the marked implementations have overrided their base classes.
Imported symbols (from external assemblies, e.g. NotImplementedException, ToString) can be marked with a different style (bold here) from symbols defined in your code.
