  1. Being able to read attribute property values

    Being able to filter on attribute property values.

    One example is to check categories on Test methods (i.e. the value from [TestCategory("IntegrationTest")]).

  3. Allow custom definitions similar to JustMyCode

    The JustMyCode definition is really nice and useful. I'd like to have a similar concept for other things, e.g. JustMyBusinessLogic or JustMyDatabaseLayer. Today I need to create different NDepend projects and adapt the JustMyCode definition for each of them.

  4. Customize pre-defined nDepend dashboard (non-chart)

    Allow to change pre-defined or define new custom metrics (non chart) similar to '#Types', 'Third-Party Usage', 'Method Complexity', etc. on the dashboard so it is clear decrease or increase of a specific metric (comparisons with a baseline snapshot). This is useful especially when the increase is very small and might be difficult to follow on a chart.

    Be able to remove some of the predefined stats from the dashboard similar to what is available with the predefined charts.

  7. Allow Search of string literals.

    It would be extremely handy (especially when working with legacy code) to be able to search string literals. This comes in handy especially when working with code that does reflection, some types of IOC registration, and code that may pass on certain types of information as string literals.

  9. Rules: Provide possibility to search for code comments. Example: Count "TODO" or Count "HACK"

    It would be interesting to see how many TODOs we have in code
    Or how much we added in the last Sprint

  10. Parse VB.NET code

    Parse VB.NET code the same way C# code is parsed, to gather the code metrics # Lines of Comment and Source Code Cyclomatic Complexity from VB.NET code bases.

  11. Create an NDepend.CodeModel.IProperty interface

    This would be especially handy to detect with CQLinq when a property is tagged with an attribute, and also to jump from the getter method to the setter method and vice-versa. So IProperty would have to implement the interface NDepend.CodeModel.IAttributeTarget

  13. Make possible to define groups of assemblies

    This would be especially handy to see dependencies between groups of assemblies in the matrix or in the graph. Groups of assemblies could be also useful for grouping code elements in rules or query results.

  14. Provide a Code Structure Validation panel

    Provide a Code Structure Validation panel where the user could define and edit the logical code structure through a graph of nodes and edges. Nodes could be then linked to code elements (by a naming system) and the code structure could then be validated at analysis time.

  16. See suppressed issue justification in query result view

    When using the SuppressMessageAttribute, the suppressed issues are grouped in the query result view. It would be very useful to also see the suppression ‘Justification’. Perhaps add a column so we could group by justification? Thanks.

  17. Support custom VS colors

    With custom colors [1], It would be great to sync the ndepend UI colors with those of VS, is case of using this extension. Without it, the last VS color is "coming back" at every launch.

  18. Be able to update queries from a central location, like a NUGET but for querie

    Sometimes queries need to be modified by us, but sometimes those queries are very generic and should be there for ALL Projects, for example today with Support they helped me to create a query to avoid a warning with JustMyCode.

    If there were a central repository of Queries, then Ndepend would be able to connect to it (Nuget style) and the user would be able to select if they want to update or not the local queries. (Queries would need some versioning)

  19. Support a generic coverage input format (with documentation)

    While supporting various code coverage output formats is helpful and is ideal from an ease-of-use standpoint, there will always be that one more coverage tool.

    If instead you provide a documented xml(json, whatever) format, then one can transform the output of a coverage tool to that format without waiting for support for the format to be added to NDepend, or the coverage tool can even directly support an NDepend output option.

  20. I want to store and reload the layout of a graph.

    I want to store and reload the layout of a graph. When I analyse existing code, the layout needs to be adjusted manually to define clusters. It would be good if those adjustements can be stored not just as graphics, but as model layout. Alternatively adding special elements to support building group might be useful.
