Code Inspections in CSS
In CSS, JetBrains Rider 2017.3 provides 21 proprietary code inspections, any of which you can disable or change its severity level.
These code inspections help you detect code issues in design time in all open files, and additionally they allow you to find code issues in specific scope.
Configurable CSS inspections are listed below, grouped by their categories.
Common Practices and Code Improvements (1 inspection)
This category groups inspections that hunt for medium severity issues that mainly affect code readability.
| Two colons preferred || Suggestion |
Potential Code Quality Issues (16 inspections)
This category includes inspections that detect critical issues (code smells), mostly with Error
level. This category also includes inspections that ensure localization assistance
| Cannot resolve file system path || Error |

Redundancies in Code (3 inspections)
Code inspections in this category look for redundancies and dead code, which affect code readability and style, and could be safely removed. Some code redundancies cannot be fixed automatically, and quick-fixes for them are performed in the interactive mode, requiring the user input. But the majority of the redundancies can be fixed without user interaction, using either fix in scope
or code cleanup
| Redundant code || Warning |
| Redundant CSS hack || Warning |
| Redundant measure unit || Warning |
Redundancies in Symbol Declarations (1 inspection)
This category includes code inspections, mostly with the warning
severity level, which detect empty and unused symbol declarations.
| Declaration is empty || Warning |
