A couple Framework Design Tools…


Good tools are essential to good engineering… Recently I ran across a couple of good tools that will help with Framework design and implementation. 

 

image NDepends – is a tool that allows you to analyze your source code in order to get a grip on what is really going on so you can do large refractorings, reduce complexity, etc.     Check out the online demos  

 

SubMain also has a cool that is effectively like FXCop, but it automatically fixes the errors for you where possible.  Check out this tutorial for more information..

 

 

What tools do you use everyday?  anything else you think I should highlight?

    I second the GhostDoc/Sandcastle combo. Not exactly design tools but as a freelancer I use it for every project i work on, knowing that I probably wont be the one looking at it in 12 months time 🙂

    Ghostdoc, and from time to time Dependency Visualizer (www.codeplex.com/dependencyvisualizer)

    and yes, I’m biased about the second one …
