Again Visual Studio 2015 extensions Friday’s. Today is time for a very fun developer activity: "The debug mode". The senior developers or demigods mostly consider debugging an unworthy Act. I also am who think it’s much more productive to "think before to debug". However, I am also aware that if you goes into debug mode, if the best way to learn and become familiar with new code.
As well, today I found this extension which allows you to be a debugger in Visual Studio 2015 in God Mode: "DebugStudio". According to the extension author, the tool is in Alpha stage with what we can expect some errors. However, it has a couple of very interesting ideas. For example;
Step debugging point counter
This is great, we can see to the left of the refined line, the number of times that the debugger has gone through this line. In a loop, the idea is well understood.
Disable breakpoint after N times
Related to the previous point, we can define that a breakpoint ceases to be valid after N times.
There are other interesting options such as the chance to add breakpoints in bulk way, mark them so they are not disabled, etc. I think I will give you a look during the next few months and I’ll see if it continues to evolve.
Enjoy your weekend!
