those who know me know that I am a staunch enemy of the mouse. Eye! This does not mean that he is a friend of the touch, but rather than attempt to always work with keyboard shortcuts.
So was that a couple of days ago I installed an extension in Visual Studio called CodeMaid, but it wasn’t until yesterday that I had the opportunity to use it. In fact, one of the keyboard shortcuts for keyboard "stepped" with another that I use and there I realized that had the installed extension.
I’ve been 2 days and the truth is that CodeMaid, I like. I like it because it is free, because it is open source, because it points to simple but effective things and because it works on the latest 4 updates for Visual Studio.
For example, has struck me how well it works the "Cleanup" option. This action is responsible for "clean" our code looking for details as
- unused using statements
- removes unnecessary whitespace
- delete consecutive blank lines
So I’ve implemented a couple of files that I knew that they had room for improvement, and it has done really well.
Another option that I like is "Reorganize" a class. This option reorganizes the code of a class based on the specifications of StyleCop. If we then execute the analysis of StyleCop, we will see that it takes us much work above.
Note: recalls that in Avanade Spain , is highly probable that you touch pass a review with StyleCop as mandatory for the coding style rule.
Finally, an action which I think is great. The ability to switch between related files. As usual we usually do when edit WPF between the XAML and the XAML.cs
As well, only emphasize those 3 things although I know has more. CodeMaid has been worth for 2 days of work.
Meanwhile, I shall return to activate ReSharper and will work with it that gives me the same options and know him much better.
