Product Features

NDepend is a "Swiss Army Knife" for .NET and .NET Core 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

Warnings on Build Process Health

NDepend is able to provide useful information about the health of your build process, including:

Assemblies versionning 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.
