is an automated static analysis tool for .NET applications. It helps developers to quickly analyze, review, and understand the architecture of their code, measure and improve its quality, and track technical debt. It provides a comprehensive set of features to help developers identify and fix potential problems in their code.
NDepend allows developers to measure code quality and complexity to improve code maintainability.
Code Metrics: NDepend
provides a suite of code metrics to help developers understand the complexity and maintainability of their code. It provides metrics for: code structure, lines of code, cyclomatic complexity, class coupling, and more.
Code Query Language (CQLinq): NDepend provides a powerful query language to allow developers to easily query their code to identify potential problems or design flaws. CQLinq queries can be written with a simple syntax, and they can be customized to the specific needs of the application.
Code Rule Compliance: NDepend allows developers to write custom rules to check for code compliance. These rules can be used to enforce best practices and coding standards.
Refactoring: NDepend provides refactoring tools to help developers improve the architecture of their code. Refactoring tools can be used to refactor code, reorganize classes, and simplify code.
Architecture Views: NDepend provides a graphical view of the architecture of an application. This view can be used to understand the structure of the code and identify potential design flaws.
Technical Debt: NDepend provides a view of the technical debt of an application. This view can be used to identify areas of the code that need to be refactored to reduce technical debt.
Visual Studio Integration: NDepend integrates seamlessly with Visual Studio, allowing developers to easily analyze their code and identify potential problems.
Integration with Continuous Integration Systems: NDepend can be integrated with continuous integration systems, such as Jenkins and TeamCity, to help developers automatically analyze their code and identify potential problems.
Metric Trend Analysis: NDepend provides metric trend analysis to help developers track changes to the code over time and identify potential problems.
NDepend is a powerful static analysis tool for .NET applications. It provides a comprehensive set of features to help developers analyze, review, and understand the architecture of their code, measure and improve its quality, and track technical debt. It includes code metrics, code query language, code rule compliance, refactoring, architecture views, technical debt, Visual Studio integration, and integration with continuous integration systems. It is an invaluable tool for any .NET developer.
