How ReSharper C++ Helps Visual Studio Users
Analyze and improve code quality
ReSharper C++ highlights code issues in the editor and provides quick-fixes to improve code in one way or another. Unreachable code? Redundant statements? Suspicious object slicing or incorrect format specifier? ReSharper C++ will bring these and other kinds of problems to your attention and help you fix them.
Refactor and transform code
Code refactorings for C++ help safely change your code base, which is especially important in a language as non-trivial as C++. Context actions help switch between alternative syntax constructs and serve as shortcuts to code generation actions.
Run and manage unit tests
ReSharper C++ supports running Google Test based unit tests in Visual Studio. You can run and debug unit tests contextually, right from the text editor. In addition, dedicated tool windows are provided to view, group, filter and run unit tests, as well as to create and manage unit test sessions.
Find usages and navigate the solution
You can instantly jump at any file, type, or type member in solution. You can search for usages of any code and enjoy a clear view of found usages, with grouping and preview options. Last but not least, you can go from any code symbol to its declaration or definition, its base or derived symbols.
Generate common code
Code that ReSharper C++ can generate for you includes definitions, missing and overriding members, equality and relational operators, hash and swap functions. Add dozens of customizable templates, and you have the tools to deal with boilerplate code faster than ever.
Use a consistent code style
Configure code formatting options and naming style, share settings with your teammates, and maintaining a consistent code style should never be a problem again.
