Essential Developer Tools - Part 1: Reflector Plugins

Submitted by Robert MacLean on Thu, 12/13/2007 - 14:36
One of the most powerful tools in a developers kit (and an essential for CCF development) is reflector. Up until now I always assumed (incorrectly) plug-in's added other language support. That is until I stumbled on to a great codeplex site. This site lists a large number of plug-in's be them on codeplex or not.

The site is: http://www.codeplex.com/reflectoraddins

Some of the nice ones there:

  • Code Metrics
  • Code Review Tools
  • Dumping of source code to file
  • Silverlight support
  • SQL 2005 (for CLR integration) support
  • Unit and mock testing
  • BizTalk Support
  • A few diagram and charting tools
  • Powershell support (as a language)

There are a lot of other nice ones but those are really great.
