Code Refactoring & Transformation

With over 100 refactorings and intelligent code providers, CodeRush delivers the power you need to easily change code, improving readability and the internal structure without changing external behavior.

Safely make changes to the API (add/remove parameters, add interface members, move members up the hierarchy) or update legacy code to support new language features. Focus more on code quality and functionality, and let CodeRush handle the routine changes to the code base.

Compared to other coding productivity tools, CodeRush is the only one that is non-intrusive, discoverable, and fully extensible. I simply would not get caught writing code in Visual Studio without it. It's miles ahead of the competition. Miguel A Castro / Microsoft MVP

Code Navigation & Search

Move through your code at warp speed. CodeRush includes innovative, powerful and exclusive tools that help you be exactly where you want to be in an instant, regardless of solution size.

Once I tried it, I was completely hooked. Code generation, refactorings - everything became faster and more reliable. The best part is how the tool teaches you as you go, making it incredibly easy to learn what it's capable of. Mark Gilbert

Code Style & Formatting

With a rich set of code style settings, you get to focus on code quality and functionality while CodeRush focuses on matching the style needed in the moment. And code style settings can be separately configured (if needed) for yourself, individual solutions, and your entire team.

You can format code, remove unused code, and sort and group members in a single action. You can do this for the active file or instantly clean up entire folders or projects. CodeRush gives you complete control over the entire process.

And if you like, CodeRush will clean up code automatically (to your specifications) when saving documents.

Whether it's Style Cop guidelines or any other style you prefer, CodeRush can organize your code and make it easier to read.

I loved CodeRush classic and CR for Roslyn is a true step up ESPECIALLY in performance and "lightweightnesses". Also, communication with team is great and they respond to tickets promptly. Make sure you give it a try. Mario Blataric

Code Coverage & Testing

When it comes to Test Driven Development, CodeRush is the tool of choice. CodeRush's Test Runner is top of its class. It's the fastest test runner available for .NET. Run and debug a single test, or all tests in the solution. You can even focus on a group of related tests using the Sessions functionality. In-source icons let you run, debug, and see test run status directly from code. And it simply works across test frameworks without any configuration required.

NUnit, MSTest (VS Testing), xUnit, and MSpec tests all are working right out of the box. .NetCore (including .Net 5 and .Net 6), .Net Framework, and multi-target projects are also supported.

CodeRush Templates make it easier to create new tests with a simple keystroke, while Code Coverage helps your entire team find problem areas in the code. You can even reveal line-by-line coverage details if you like.

Reviews from Your Peers

Alex Brunner

I cannot imagine development without CodeRush. I like the seamless integration in Visual Studio. The feature most used is the TestRunner which is far ahead of Test Explorer.

Thomas Betts

After more than a decade of using CodeRush, it still is my #1 must-have extension for Visual Studio.

George Hendrickson

CodeRush and DevExpress controls have become my major set of developer tools. Their controls are a cut above the rest no holds barred. Their tech support is top notch in the industry also. You will not be disappointed in the results you get from using these tools.

Mikael Kratz

Wonderful tool that helps me a lot with my coding. 5 stars without a doubt. 5 stars with a gold star if it were possible to reorganize methods, fields and properties from Code Place (drag and drop).

Adrian T

Awesome software! Very customizable and easy to use and if you can't find something their support is some of the best that I have ever come across. Fast, reliable response times!

Eric Mutta

Always a pleasure to use, tons of useful features without being a performance drag. They also listen to use feedback and respond quickly with fixes. The price is super affordable for what this thing does. Highly recommended!
