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 the code in one way or another. Unreachable code? Redundant statements? Suspicious object slicing? Incorrect format specifier? ReSharper C++ will bring these and other kinds of problems to your attention and help you to fix them.

Find usages and navigate code

You can instantly jump to any file, type, or type member in a solution. You can search for usages of code and get a clear view of the found usages, with the 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 you safely change your code base, which is especially important in a language as complex as C++. Context actions help switch between alternate 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, and hash and swap functions. Add to this dozens of customizable templates, and you have the tools to deal with boilerplate code more effectively than ever before.

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, and create and manage unit test sessions.

Use a consistent code style

Configure the code formatting options and naming style, and share settings with your teammates; maintaining a consistent code style should never again be a problem.

What's New

Why upgrade to ReSharper C++ 2019.3

C++20 support

C++20 support

C++20 is feature-complete and will be officially signed off next year to provide C++ developers with a range of long-awaited goodies. ReSharper C++ 2019.3 already supports many of these features, augmenting them with additional analysis and insights.

Most notable is the support for C++20’s Concepts. If you use Concepts in your code, ReSharper C++ will not only parse them correctly, but it will also offer the Rename refactoring as well as take Concepts into account when you use Find Usages. Thanks to its deep code analysis, it can also show you more details about errors related to Concepts. For example, if the overload resolution fails because a Concept’s requirement is not satisfied, you’ll see all the details in a tooltip.

Better code assistance for C++ code

Better code assistance for C++ code

ReSharper C++ 2019.3 can help you identify types that might not be obvious when looking at modern C++ code. With new type hints, types are shown for auto variables, in structured bindings, and for function and lambda return types.

There are also improvements to navigation actions, code analysis, and better integration with Clang-Tidy, which was recently updated to Clang 9. The formatter has several new settings and can also keep track of the order of the #include directives in your code. A corresponding inspection and a quick-fix will help you notice if they’re out of order and reorder them in no time.
