Tools for software renovation

One of the tools that is valuable when we renovate applications is Resharper – With Resharper we’re able to extract methods, rename parameters, extract classes…. Another really usefull and completely free tool we discovered is NArrange . This tool automatically re-arrange C# or VB.NET code. NArrange is basically a command line tool but on the documentation section of the site you can find how to integrate it to Visual Studio as an External Tool. It can re-arrange a single file of an entire project. It put all the parameters, methods and events into regions and order these alphabetically. This tool is amazingly fast and helps in making old an ugly legacy code more readable. You can also edit his configuration to change his default behavior.

Visual Studio TextMate Font Black Background

 

 

 

 

 

 

It’s about 2 years now that I use a black background in Visual studio with TextMate inspired font "Monaco" and I still love it. For those who wants to try you can download the fonts and the setting file from my server on http://www.belgianagencies.com/content/Visual Studio 2008_Monaco.zip
Install the fonts by copying the Monaco.ttf to c:\windows\fonts and use the Visual Studio Tools-Import & Export settings wizard to configure the font’s settings.
