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.
