Product Features

NDepend is a "Swiss Army Knife" for .NET project teams. With its wide range of features, it gives deep insight into code bases and empowers developers, architects and executives to make intelligent decisions on projects.

Evaluate the Health of Your Application

NDepend allows your team to accurately gauge the overall health of your application, no matter how complex it is.

Code Rule and Code Query

More than 150 default code rules to check against best practices. Support for Code Query over LINQ (CQLinq) to easily write custom rules and query code.

Compare Builds and Code Diff

Compare two versions of a code base and its issues set, and browse diff and changes in any way you can think of.

Continuous Code Quality

A unique approach to continuously keep the technical debt under control and reimburse it with time.

Quality Gates

Quality Gates are C# LINQ (CQLinq) queries that implement PASS/FAIL criteria to code quality.

Reduce Friction Between Your Developer Teams

NDepend's reporting and analysis helps architects and developers to communicate and reduce confusion.

Continuous Integration Reporting

Integrate NDepend analysis into your build process and get highly customized and detailed reports to see progression and prevent code quality degradation.

Complexity and Diagrams

Spot too complex code at a glance thanks to unique diagramming capabilities in the .NET world.

Easily Manage Gigantic Projects with Hundreds of Developers

Large companies often have many large builds that work together, often in mysterious ways. NDepend's in-depth reporting and custom code queries can help your company enforce its own coding standards and maintain very complex projects.

Trend Monitoring

Get Trend Charts about pretty much any code metrics to master the evolution of your application.

Working with Legacy Code is Now Easier

By mapping out the structure of the project, it is much easier to see how components and dependencies are connected.

Real-World Proof

Full Visual Studio integration, .NET Reflector support, super fast and lightweight analysis, NDepend is conceived for real-world programmers.

Harness Test Coverage Data

Writing automatic tests is a central practice to increase code correctness. Knowing which part of the code is covered by automatic tests helps improving tests and consequently, it helps increasing code correctness.

NDepend gathers code coverage data from NCover™ and Visual Studio Team System™. From this data, NDepend infers some metrics on methods, types, namespaces and assemblies : PercentageCoverage, NbLinesOfCodeCovered, NbLinesOfCodeNotCovered and BranchCoverage (from NCover only).

These metrics can be used conjointly with others NDepend features. For example you can know what code have been added or refactored since the last release and is not thoroughly covered by tests. You can write a CQLinq rule to continuously check that a set of classes is 100% covered. You can list which complex methods need more tests.



Another unique usage of code coverage data in NDepend is viusalizing code coverage through the code metric view. See a screenshot below of the metric view on the NDepend code base:

  • Rectangle are methods of the code base.
  • Each rectangle area is proportional to the #lines of code of the method.
  • and the rectangle color is defined by the percentage coverage by tests of the method.
This represents a unique way to understand the code coverage of the application, and see where more effort is needed.
