  2. Path

    Improved Path Support: please implement an improvement to Path support such that I can use both relative path + path variables in the ndproj file.

    This is important as I want to be able to:

    • add specific assemblies to the ndproj using a relative path. This means that when I branch, I don't need to update the default value to include the new branch name when using Visual NDepend

    • support two standard arguments used through our build process $(Configuration) and $(Platform)

    Example of what I want to be able to do in he Path References screen (screenshots available on request):

  3. Add a command line argument to Depend.Console.exe to be able to pass the code coverage files

    When building with TeamCity you can generate dotCover coverage files which would be convenient to be able to pass as parameters to Depend.Console.exe

  7. Support for dark theme in Visual Studio

    Many developers use dark (or various others) theme in VS. NDepend should support that and style its windows accordingly.

  8. Improve mapping of NDepend issues to Sonarcube

    Currently when using NDepend with SonarCube all critical rules are mapped to blocker issues and all other to major issues.

    Since NDepend 2017 has introduced the same granularity of issue severity as SonarCube has it would make sense to map it using this severity rating instead of using the obsolete critical/none critical rules flag of NDepend.

  10. Add importance weighting to rules for more robust "fails"

    Instead of a binary critical or not critical flag for rules, it would be nice to have a weighting system for rules (e.g. "each violation of this rule is worth 3, but each violation of this important rule is worth 8").
    Then perhaps we could assign a threshold for whether our analysis failed based on point totals, or some percentage formula.

  11. Description and Code for Avoid methods with too many parameters Do Not Match

    The description of rule Avoid methods with too many parameters says "This rule matches methods with more than 8 parameters.". The source code finds all methods with greater than 6 parameters.

    warnif count > 0 from m in JustMyCode.Methods where
    m.NbParameters >= 7

  12. If Statements Counted as Local Variables?

    Is NDepend counting if statements as local variables? The number of local variables reported by NDepend is often much higher than what I manually count. In some cases NDepend is reporting 10+ more local variables in addition to the number that are actually declared.

  14. Do not open all kinds of (tool) windows when/after running analysis

    I prefer to open/select and postion the windows when and how myself.
    I often do not need or want to view the default windows opened and it creates a kind of restlessness in the UI.
