Till now I’m a resharper fan boy and I still love using it. It is a great productivity tool. But it is not free for commercial use. So lots of my friends tell we want something open source or free which provide some kind of productivity over normal visual studio things and recently I came across CodeMaid extension of visual studio. It is a great plugin.
What is CodeMaid?
Visualize and navigate through the contents of your C# and C++ files from a tree view hierarchy. Quickly switch between different sorting methods to get a better overview. Drag and drop to reorganize the code. See McCabe complexity scores and informative tooltips.
Reorganize the layout of members in a C# file to follow Microsoft’s StyleCop convention, or your own preferences.
Recursively collapse nodes or the entire tree in the solution explorer window.
Enable, modify or disable many of the aspects of how CodeMaid does its work.
Format comments to wrap at a specified column and arrange XML major and minor tags on separate lines.
View the overall progress of a build within Visual Studio, or in the Windows taskbar, both with a green/red status indication.
Switch between related files, such as cpp and header files or xaml and code-behind.
Join two adjacent lines, or a highlighted section of code onto a single line.
Find the current file in the solution explorer window.
Toggle read-only state, close read-only files, etc.
I dig the number of languages supported (and that it's OSS :) This is SO likely to see a Coding4Fun blog post in the near future... :)
