How ReSharper helps Visual Studio users
Analyze code quality
Eliminate errors and code smells
Not only does ReSharper warn you when there’s a problem in your code but it provides hundreds of quick-fixes to solve problems automatically. In almost every case, you can select the best quick-fix from a variety of options.
Safely change the code base
Automated solution-wide code refactorings help you safely change your code base. Whether you need to revitalize legacy code or put your project structure in order, you can rely on ReSharper.
Instantly traverse the entire solution
You can instantly navigate and search through the whole solution. Jump to any file, type, or type member, or navigate from a specific symbol to its usages, base and derived symbols, or implementations.
Enjoy code editing helpers
Multiple code editing helpers including extended IntelliSense, hundreds of instant code transformations, auto-importing namespaces, rearranging code, and displaying documentation.
Comply with coding standards
Code style and formatting functionality with fine-tuned, language-specific settings will help you get rid of unused code and create a common coding standard for your team.
ReSharper makes Visual Studio a much better IDE
Find and remove unused code? Migrate your code to the latest C# version? Convert loops to LINQ at will? Find and prevent possible exceptions? Use a common naming standard? All that and a lot more code improvements are made possible with ReSharper’s code analysis.
60+ refactorings and 450+ context actions help safely organize code and move it around the solution, distribute responsibility, decouple, decrease complexity, or simply use alternative language syntax.
Navigation and search
ReSharper helps instantly get to any code in a solution, no matter how large the solution is. It can also navigate you from any symbol to its related code such as implementations of a given interface, extension methods of a class, or usages of a field.
Code formatting and cleanup
ReSharper can create a lot of code for you: from new files and classes to conditional blocks and GUIDs; from methods and properties required by an interface being implemented to equality checks and formatting members.
