Ok, I’ve mentioned ReSharper in the past – but I had to bring it up again.. Version 5 has some great new functionality and its coming soon! I’m especially excited about the huge functionality added for ASP.NET web development. I’ve been using the 5 beta and RC for probably a month or two and its great – I’ve been doing a metric butt-ton of refactoring and its great to have my changes go all the way into the .aspx files.
The NUnit test engine is great. I didn’t realize this was a ReSharper tool at first. Now, I can’t live without it.
The localization plugin is going to save me days of effort on an upcoming action item.
The class/code generating tools are indispensible – especially if you create a lot of classes (e.g NHibernate POCO’s).
The refactorings have been helping me slowly increase the legibility of my code – and also helping me build better coding habits. Check out the comparison between version 5.0 and 4.5.
If you’ve never tried ReSharper – now is the time. only I could make the time to properly learn all the different tools available…
