Why ReSharper C++?

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.

Find usages and navigate code

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.

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.

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.

Run and manage unit tests

ReSharper C++ supports running Google Test and Boost.Test based unit tests in Visual Studio. You can run and debug unit tests contextually, right from the text editor. Dedicated tool windows help you view, group, filter and run unit tests, create and manage unit test sessions.

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.

What's New

Why upgrade to ReSharper C++ 2017.3

Debugger in the editor


ReSharper С++ 2017.3 brings the debugger into the editor: local variables, function parameters, current line expressions and function return values are now displayed inline right next to the corresponding code. In addition, ReSharper C++ comes with the new Go to Breakpoint action (Ctrl+Alt+F9) and the R# Breakpoints tool window for quick navigation between breakpoints in the solution, as well as the ability to create breakpoints and tracepoints from the Find Results tool window.

ReSharper C++ also provides its own debugger DataTips with the ability to search inside them for a specific value. To access ReSharper DataTips, click the inline value display or replace Visual Studio DataTips in the Tools | Debugger ReSharper options page.

Clang-Tidy integration

Clang-Tidy integration

Clang-Tidy is a powerful open-source code analysis tool, based on the popular clang compiler. It comes with an extensive set of code checks and accompanying fixes. ReSharper C++ 2017.3 provides seamless integration with Clang-Tidy, meaning that it simply works in the background as you edit your code, with inspection results shown on-the-fly in the code editor along with built-in inspections. ReSharper C++ also lets you apply the fixes provided by Clang-Tidy individually, as scope actions, or from code cleanup.
