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.

Code Diff since Baseline

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

  • NDepend is non-intrusive. You don’t have to modify your code to use it.
  • NDepend is easy to tackle with. It won’t take you more than 5 minutes to install it as a VisualStudio addin and analyze a .NET application with dozens of assemblies.
  • NDepend is fast and lightweight. A tremendous effort has been spent on optimization.
    • It analyzes around 10.000 lines of C# or VB.NET code per second,
    • Most of the analysis will take less than 5 seconds (asynchronous) in Visual Studio thanks to incremental analysis capability,
    • It takes from 50MB to 100MB of extra memory in a Visual Studio process.
  • NDepend is 100% integrated in Visual Studio™ 2019, 2017, 2015, 2013, 2012 and 2010. If you prefer you can use the standalone VisualNDepend.exe UI that collaborates with Visual Studio™.
  • NDepend collaborates with Reflector. You can have access to all NDepend menus by right-clicking code elements in Reflector and with NDepend, Visual Studio and Reflector smartly collaborate.
