Excellent tool, perfect to maintain prjects from the get go. I would be careful doing it to large code bases as there are a few gotcha's that you will want to be sure you like the behaviour of before you go ahead and clean a whole solution.
Sorry to hear it. In regards to the crash, please check https://bitbucket.org/s_cadwallader/codemaid/issue/213/refactor-rename-starts-endless-clean-loop if you are seeing a crash during a rename operation.
As to performance, I wouldn't have expected any differences at this point but there are performance improvements in the works going forwards.
Sorry for the trouble. Yes, this is a known issue introduced in the VS2012 API and resolved by the Microsoft team for the next major release. They've offered a workaround which I am working towards implementing. For more details: https://bitbucket.org/s_cadwallader/codemaid/issue/142/spade-starts-endless-process-in-vs-2012-c
For VS2012 C++ projects, you can close the Spade tool window and still use the rest of the functionality of CodeMaid for now.
Good extension, but I have some remarks: What for in VS2012 there "Find in solution" in context menu and "collapse all recursively" in solution explorer? VS2012 already has this functions. There would be great if I can configure what buttons to display in context menu and solution explorer. What do you think about updating icons to make them pixel-clear because thy are blurry?
As a C# developer, this tool is a pretty good collection of most wanted tools: easy to learn, easy to customize (e.g. the reorganizing tool). I like the code map displaying regions, embedded methods, interfaces etc., so I easily can navigate between them. Congratulations to the developer of CodeMaid!
I have checked CodeMaid against VS10x CodeMap and I have to say that for my daily work and regarding to what I really need: CodeMaid is on the same Level like VS10x CodeMap.
Spade should fully run asynchronously - so although it may take a long time for it to load I wouldn't expect a performance hit except on a single core machine. I've created a Trello card for further discussion here: https://trello.com/c/ha1vFRS7
Currently CodeMaid has two themes (dark and light) to match the Visual Studio themes. The tool window backgrounds are #FF252526 and #FFF6F6F6 respectively. By default CodeMaid will auto-detect the IDE tool window background color and choose one of the two themes from there.
Feature requests can be added to the backlog here: https://trello.com/b/VVxVhbQv/backlog
Or the relevant source code is available here:
Hope it helps.
Cool, glad to hear it. :)
We've moved over to GitHub this weekend, so if you've got something you think is generic enough you'd like to include in the main code line you can submit a pull request there. If not no worries too.
I have "Remove end of line whitespace" checked, but that option doesn't delete whitespace that exists on a blank line. (i.e. a line with whitespace only.) Is there a way to tell CodeMaid that I want ALL trailing whitespace to be removed? CodeMaid version is 0.7.1. Visual Studio version is Professional 2012 Update 4.
Glad you figured it out. Visual Studio does have the concept of a virtual cursor position - that's how the next line of code looks to be indented to the same level before you start writing anything. If you press the 'end' key you'll see it toggle between the virtual end of line and actual end of line, or you can enable viewing whitspace.
CodeMaid shouldn't(tm) be related to any settings about highlighting unused variables. I don't know that Visual Studio does that by default, I think it comes from other third party extensions like ReSharper.
Sorry to hear it. I haven't seen that issue or had any other users report it. Have you noticed any patterns about when your settings are getting reset, such as it happens after performing an operation in another extension? My best guess would be that the shared space where user preferences are stored are getting overwritten.
As a workaround until we can identify the source of the reset, I'd recommend exporting your settings when they're valid so you can quickly re-import them once you've noticed they have been reset.
I have the same problem, just today! And before I found the codemaid settings lost, I made an update of Visual Studio 2013 (Update 1). Thus, although I can not say this for sure, the lost settings may correspond to updates made in VisualStudio.
When i right click a solution and click 'clean all code...' i get below error message. This is in VS2013 update 1
Microsoft Visual Studio
Could not load file or assembly 'Microsoft.VisualStudio.Package.LanguageService.10.0, Version=10.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.
This is a known Microsoft bug in VS2013. They've promised to fix it in VS2013 Update 2.
Please follow through this issue for details on a workaround: https://bitbucket.org/s_cadwallader/codemaid/issue/220/vs2013-cleanup-all-code-shows-error
After install codemaid, i'm using visual studio 2010, and use the extension my visual studio stop running and when i start again, i got the same result. I have uninstalled the codemaid extensioni and there is not any problem again. Do you have some setting or patch for this issue?
I'm not sure if this will help the problem you are describing, but there is a known issue that some users have encountered with multithreading performance. You can disable that optimization through CodeMaid->Configuration->General->"Multithread options". This is the default in the latest BETA release.
If that isn't the problem, please open an issue on BitBucket (https://bitbucket.org/s_cadwallader/codemaid/issues) including some details such as what you are doing when the error occurs, any relevant screenshots, and if the issue occurs consistently or erratically.
