A proposito di Visual Assist

Riempie i gap in Visual Studio per gli sviluppatori C/C++ e C#.

Visual Assist fills the gaps in Microsoft Visual Studio. It helps developers write code faster and easier. Visual Assist is a key productivity tool relied on by C++ developers worldwide. It is very likely that software you use has been written with the assistance of Visual Assist. Whether it is better navigation than is inbuilt in Visual Studio, to refactorings, code generation, and more, Visual Assist is extraordinarily powerful, is lightweight and fast, is very flexible, and is written by developers for developers. That means it does what your developers need.

Visual Assist solves problems in Visual C++ and C#. From better navigation to refactoring, this lightweight performant plugin is widely relied on in the industry. Visual Assist has a wealth of features to enhance developer productivity and will improve virtually every Microsoft IDE you have with the multitude of features that comprise Visual Assist.

Visual Assist Features:

  • Navigation
    Move about your code with newfound ease—to any file, method, symbol, or reference in your projects and solutions. Get anywhere from anywhere.
  • Refactoring
    Reduce the complexity of your code, improve its readability, and make it extensible without changing its external behavior. Refactor legacy code, code you inherit, or the first version of your own work.
  • Code Generation
    Generate code faster than you think possible, even if you use just a handful of the features in Visual Assist. As you become a proficient user, write and update code even faster.
  • Coding Assistance
    Write code faster with assistance that doesn't get in your way, especially when you're on a roll. Visual Assist suggests completions only if they save you serious typing, and quietly fixes mistakes in your wake.
  • Code Understanding
    Make sense of complex code, or code you haven't touched in a long time, with an assortment of tool windows, browsers, and fields that provide information where and when you need it.
  • Code Correction
    Watch Visual Assist correct mistakes as you make them, especially errors in symbol case and pointer notation. Type entirely in lower case, and watch Visual Assist correct the case of all of your symbols. Save the shift key for your definitions.
  • Code Inspection
    Inspect your code for specific quality issues as you edit. The Code Inspection feature of Visual Assist, based on LLVM/Clang, diagnoses and fixes typical programming errors, like style violations, interface misuse, and bugs that can be deduced via static analysis.
  • Code Snippets
    Expand frequently typed segments of code with a more powerful version of the like-named feature in the IDE. Include symbols from the current context, prompt for user input, and edit snippets in a custom editor.
  • Debug Assistance
    Use the VA Memory View and the VA Step Filter included with Visual Assist to shorten the time required to debug native C/C++.
  • Tool Windows
    View code from 30,000 feet, and rearrange code so it's easier to understand and maintain. Tool windows in Visual Assist supply entirely new functionality to the IDE, and bring together oft-used built-in functionality to more efficient tool windows.
  • Source Links
    Connect comment substrings to external applications and websites, such as bug trackers, case managers, documentation, and source code control systems.
  • Configuration
    Adjust the multitude of features in Visual Assist to suit your programming environment and habits. Find your favorite features, and make them hum for maximum productivity.
