Hundreds of default code rules to check against best practices. Support for Code Query over C# LINQ (CQLinq) to easily customize rules and query code.
Easily Manage Large Projects
Most companies have large systems that work together, often in mysterious ways. NDepend's in-depth reporting and toolset can help your company enforce its own coding standards and maintain complex projects.
Explore how the code is actually structured and shed light on architectural flaws thanks to the most powerful code dependency graph and dependency matrix available in the tool industry.
For each issue, the cost to fix and the severity are estimated through smart and customizable C# formulas. Thus estimations proposed are realistic.
Continuous Code Quality
A unique approach to continuously keep the technical debt under control and reimburse it with time.
Quality Gates are C# LINQ (CQLinq) queries that implement PASS/FAIL criteria to code quality.
Explore the issues-set in a few clicks and focus your effort on what is urgent and important.
Import test coverage data, and make the most of it in the NDepend feature-rich context.
Monitor the Health of Your Application
NDepend allows your team to accurately gauge the overall health of your application, no matter how complex it is.
Get Trend Charts about pretty much any code metrics to master the evolution of your application.
Compare two versions of a code base and its issues set, and browse diff and changes in any way you can think of.
Be warned of potential build process problems before they end up causing friction and pain.
Reduce Friction Between Your Developer Teams
NDepend's reporting and analysis helps architects and developers to communicate and reduce confusion.
Integrate NDepend analysis into your build process and get highly customized and detailed reports to see progression and prevent code quality degradation.
Spot too complex code at a glance thanks to unique diagramming capabilities.
Lines of Code, Cyclomatic Complexity, Coupling, Nesting Depth, Rank, NDepend supports them all (and much more).
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.
Get rid of dependency cycles between components to achieve higher code maintainability.
NDepend helps maintaining clean side-effects free code to write highly maintainable products.
Full Visual Studio and Azure DevOps integration, super fast and lightweight analysis, integration within all CI/DevOps systems, NDepend is conceived for real-world programmers.
Write your own static analyzer based on NDepend.API, or tweak existing open-sources Power Tools.
NDepend is able to provide useful information about the health of your build process, including:
Assemblies versioning issues such as:
- AssemblyA references AssemblyB v2.1 but only AssemblyB v2.0 is available.
- AssemblyA references 2 versions of AssemblyB (which is not necessarily a bad thing, but it's still useful to be aware of such situation).
Assembly conflicts such as:
- The name of my assembly main module file is different from the logical name of my assembly.
- Several different assemblies with the same name can be found (different = different hash code and/or different version).
PDB files issues such as:
- Missing PDB files.
- PDB files and code source files not in-sync.
- PDB files and assemblies are not in-sync.
Coverage files issues such as:
- Corrupted or missing coverage files.
- Coverage files and code source files not in-sync.
- Coverage files and assemblies are not in-sync.
