CodeRush vs ReSharper (the Roslyn debate)


Will CR/R# take advantage of Roslyn???

WOW! what a hot topic…

In short, here is what you need to know…

1. Will ReSharper take advantage of Roslyn?

NO

2. Will CodeRush take advantage of Roslyn?

YES

Now, to be fair both camps have produced two very detailed posts (click on the links above)

As a developer I have written before on my preference for IDE Tools, but I think this is quite a defining moment. Thinking back to pre .NET days (yes, my dear students, there was a time before .NET, just as there was a time before the internet!) there were a few contenders that made our lives easier, since Visual Studio was born, the selections have been limited to a couple of key players. At the time of writing there are a couple of other vendors that have not responded to my request on support for the new compiler.

Roslyn provides so many benefits and will continue to grow into the next generation of frameworks, so DevExpress’s position of embracing it I believe is the right way to go. Now, if only I can get Mark Miller to join me on a webinar to explain all the cool features of CR Roslyn style 🙂
