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 Trend Charts (3 minutes)
NDepend lets create trend charts. Trend charts are made of trend metrics values logged over time at analysis time. More than 50 trend metrics are available per default and it is easy to create your own trend metrics.
Trend charts are displayed on the NDepend dashboard. Some trend charts are available per default to show:
- Lines of Code
- Number of Code Rules Violated and number of Code Rules Violations
- Code Coverage per Tests
- Max and Average values for various Code Quality Metrics
- Third-Party Usage
Trend charts can be customized and it is easy to create your own trend charts to show default trend metrics and/or custom trend metrics.
Measuring a code base trends with NDepend comes with many flexible sub-features:
- Lines of Code
- Trend charts can be created and customized.
- New Trend metrics can be written through CQLinq queries. For example here is the definition of a trend metric that counts the numbers of types implementing the interface System.IDisposable:
- Trend charts can be displayed and analyzed both in the main NDepend UI and in the reports.
- NDepend.API comes with a sub API to read/write trend metrics values logged and to force log.
