  1. Make the settings file location customizable

    When the location is customizable we can easier move the settings fiile between machines (par example as part of a solution)

  2. Improve management of rules shared between projects

    In addition to sharing custom rules between projects I want to be able to enable/disable rules among all my projects. I currently have 5 active ND projects, so if I want to turn off, for instance, "Nested types should not be visible" for all my projects, I have to go uncheck it in each project. Every time I tweak my rules, I have to go repeat these tweaks in all my ND projects.
    Some sort of meta-project rules management would be an enormous effort saver.
    In addition, once a set of "standard rules" are decided upon, it would be nice…

  3. Summary report for all projects analyzed

    To have a widget or page that summarizes on one view ALL builds/projects with a analysis report for a simplistic view of all metrics available.

  4. A 'Hound' like product for .Net projects

    I recently ran across a new project called 'Hound' http://robots.thoughtbot.com/introducing-hound that help developers fight the smaller code quality issues by commenting on github pull requests. This made me think of NDepend as a Service and would be a nice way to integrate NDepend into my workflow - by simply commenting on offending lines of a pull request a team could start to have an automated way of having the team fix things that might otherwise be missed. I really like how hound talks about removing the 'human' from some of the littler issues.

    I could see this starting out as…

  5. Update the GUI look and feel to a WPF + responsive GUI

    • The usage/look/feel is kind of clunky, with so miscellaneous delays and microadjustments, which make it feel slow.
    • Several panels are having a 'not really adapted' display.
    • A responsive display and adjustments would be much welcome.
    • Adding a smart column adjustment (put the mouse cursor between two column titles, the cursor becomes a left-right double arrow, then double click will make the collumn adjust to minimum width without cutting the largest row) would be much welcome.

  6. Add a minimal deployment option for build agents

    Although admittedly NDepend isn't a huge product, it would be helpful if there was a secondary deployment option which was just NDepend.Console.exe and its dependencies. No GUI tools, power tools, integration extensions etc. Just the absolute basics so that you can easy stick it on a build agent or in SCC as part of a tools folder without including stuff that a build agent would never use.

    Of course, this now has its own problems as v7 seems to use an activation model whereas with v6 you could just include the license file to your agents. (Not to mention the…

  7. Augmented reality for NDepend

    The ndepend tool is for profound users, to make it closer to ordinary people I suggest incorporating some elements of augmented reality (like this https://jasoren.com/logistics/)

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. Be able to run R# "refactor"-commands based a NDepend query result

    Query code base in order to modify.

    ReSharper is best in facilitating refactoring.
    NDepend is best in facilitating code analysis and locating pieces of code.

    Solution: integrate the ReSharper and NDepend in any suitable way.

  11. 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.

  12. LCOM Metric Should Not Include Property Accessors

    Property accessors usually only use 1 field. If they are used to compute the LOCOM metric then the result can be very misleading.

  13. IVisualStudioManager.GetAssembliesFromVisualStudioSolutionOrProject(IAbsoluteFilePath visualStudioSolutionOrProjectFilePath) not working.

    Our Requirement:
    1) Developer should be able to find the dependencies of any selected assembly or file (class level) in the solution.
    2) Integrate to build system. The tool should check for allowed/disallowed dependencies. The build should fail if there are disallowed dependencies.

    Our Approach:
    To satisfy the above mentioned, we tried to extend the NDepend.PowerTools by creating a new tool in the same solution.
    In the tool class, we tried to use nDepend dlls to get the dependencies of all assemblies/classes in the solution. The input for the tool is the solution file.

    Problem we faced:
    After selecting our…

  14. Show rules violated by code elements in VS code editor and update status live

    A visual indicator indicates in the VS code editor for each code element (method, field, type, namespace) if it violates one or several rules.

    From this visual indicator it is possible to jump to the code rule(s) violated)

    The rule status would be updated asynchronously after 2 to 5 seconds (depending on the size of the code base) each time the user types and reach a compilable status.
