Thanks Shreeharsh! This is in fact available for free to certain audiences including teachers and students in a classroom setting, Open Source project contributors and Microsoft MVPs.

If you came here from a Jetbrains tweet, say "Hey hello!".

I've been using ReSharper for five years and it's the best productivity tools that ever have been made for Visual Studio. It's true that some versions have been slower, but that's nothing compared to what you get. Here is my favorite features: http://blog.gauffin.org/2013/02/how-resharper-rocks-my-average-work-day/

Thanks Jonas! Great post btw, shows a mature ReSharper user in you )

Makes me a lot more productive. I learn from its suggestions. I feel crippled without it. Those who complain about its price or upgrade price, it's all relative. Think about how much you make per hour and how many hours of work it saves you per year and do the math.

It works really well and makes some of the tedious coding stuff go away. Upgrades are too expensive though. Just say you bought a house and then the next year you were charged half the original purchase price to add a nice bedroom and remodel a bathroom that you rarely use. That's their pricing plan.

Thanks! Upgrades aren't cheap, that's true, but they're optional and you can use an earlier version as long as you want.

I'm more productive with Resharper. The refactoring features are awesome!

Great work guys, more than a 5 years using it, a must have for all .net developers.

PS: For all the developers using it in a daily basis and complaining it's resource hungry, I think is time to review the hardware.

Thanks a lot! I must admit, performance issues happen now and then, even on very decent hardware, but we're eager to investigate and help resolve them on an individual basis, it just takes a minute to contact us.

ReSharper is the first thing I install after VS. I can't live without this one extension.

Thanks Garrett! The extension would have a hard time living without you either )

WARNING: Damages Visual Studio error highlighting when uninstalled (possibly other side-effects as well). Don't install unless you plan to buy! (After uninstall, errors are no longer highlighted in red, no red dots on scrollbar). Not sure if I'm looking at a repair or a full uninstall and reinstall. But I am NOT happy about this.

[edit for reply posted by Jetbrains] I did in fact find a description of how to correct the problem in an old posting on StackOverflow. It seems you've had this bug for over three years! Sorry. An uninstall that does serious damage definitely rates a one star rating. (It's enormously difficult to develop without that feature). Also, problems with frequent crashes in the XAML IDE seem to have resolved themselves now I've uninstalled resharper. (http://stackoverflow.com/questions/828477/resharper-uninstall-visual-studio-no-longer-shows-correct-error-highlighting)

Anyway thanks for the review, Robin, and apologies for the damage and frustration. This is indeed behavior known for a long time but I still hope we can fix it in future (for the record, here's a bug report: http://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/RSRP-107955), along with difficulties in disabling ReSharper keystrokes that sometimes happen on uninstallation.

  • What the means VisualStudio Partner?
    2 Posts | Last post February 05, 2014
    • I dont know and I cannot see what the means about Visual Studio Partner Icon???
    • The icons designates that the vendor of ReSharper, JetBrains, is a Microsoft partner within the Visual Studio Industry Partner program. It means in particular receiving early builds of new Visual Studio releases, collaboration between Microsoft and JetBrains experts in making ReSharper work smoothly in Visual Studio etc. Overall it's a good thing )
  • Error
    2 Posts | Last post January 15, 2014
    • When I open it says could not find compatible installation
    • Senthamil, is it possible that you're trying to install ReSharper into Visual Studio Express? ReSharper is only compatible with Visual Studio Professional or higher (similar to all other VS extensions)
  • cant use resharper on my vs 2012 v 3
    2 Posts | Last post October 15, 2013
    • i cant use resharper, when i try to install it, it displays a message that says , resharper couldnt find any compatible visual studio installations, and i just updated visual 2012 to v3. i installed it anyway, separated from vs, but i dont know how to compile it to visual, how can i make the resharper work for my vs 2012?
    • Juan Luis, what edition of Visual Studio are you using? I'm asking because ReSharper (similar to any other extension) can't be installed into Express editions of Visual Studio.
  • Visual Studio 2012 Update 3
    5 Posts | Last post October 10, 2013
    • Is this extension compatible with the new Visual Studio 2012 Update 3 (released yesterday)?
    • Yes I Test This And Work Good
    • Pending compatibility testing (VS2012 Update 3 + ReSharper 7.1.3 and 8.0 Beta). Looks good so far.
    • We're done with compatibility testing, and we can recommend ReSharper 7.1.3 to be used with Visual Studio 2012 Update 3.

  • UML support
    2 Posts | Last post January 06, 2013
    • Have you thought about extended UML support? Something like in InteliJ - Live edit on classes etc. VS has its own code generation, but it sucks all over the place and if you will change something in uml it will simply override your code changes on generation started.
    • The closest thing we have right now is Architecture Explorer and Dependency Graph support in VS2012 Ultimate (http://blogs.jetbrains.com/dotnet/2012/07/how-exactly-resharper-7-supports-visual-studio-2012/)
      There are no further plans as far as I'm aware. Interesting point to think about though, thank you )

  • Any plans to make a standalone version or one that can integrate with VS Express?
    2 Posts | Last post March 10, 2012
    • Any plans to make a standalone version of R# or one that integrates with Visual Studio Express. (Express does support extensions through the "Extension Manager" but perhaps not via third party installers. There is an "Online Gallery" in the Extension Manager which I believe is maintained by Microsoft.)
    • Thanks for your question!
      Unfortunately, no such plans as yet.
      As you correctly guess, we can't install into Express, only into Professional or higher.
      Standalone IDE is not on our agenda right now as well.
  • Responding to reviews

    • Review by XAML GUY | Sat 4:51 PM
      Great product, only marked down for the price and the pestering after expiry.
      
      Response by JetBrains Sat 6:19 PM - Thanks for your feedback. What do you mean when you say "pestering" though?
      
      Hi JetBrains, thought had to start a discussion because there was no other option to respond to your question, I dodn't see any function to reply to a response.
      
      I really do love all the work you put into your cooltool, a must-have for any enterprise. My impressions are several years old so correct me if I'm wrong. 
      
      What I meant is that once it expired, it popped up pestering messages every time I opened a project, and there was no simple uninstall button there and then - just close, and go uninstall manually, when I next had time. It added valuable pain and extra clicks to opening projects.
      
      I presume you're going to tell me that's not the case any more?
      
      Regards,
      Pedro
    • Hi Pedro,
      
      Switching to the discussion format was the best option as VSG provides very weird support for discussions under Reviews.
      
      Thanks for describing exactly what kind of behavior you were not happy with.
      I would love to say that it's not the case any more but unfortunately it is. If ReSharper evaluation has expired and it doesn't see a valid license key, its License Information dialog does pop up on every Visual Studio launch. We have enabled functionality to suspend ReSharper through Tools > Options but there's no quick uninstall button right now. We do have a prototype of a new license dialog but it's not implemented just yet. We're hoping to be able to make improvements in this area for the next release later this year.
  • Are you going to allow features selection during installation?
    2 Posts | Last post May 30, 2011
    • I would propose to allow users to select - what features to install with ReSharper. 
      Let say - I would do not install Unit Testing features from Jet Brains
      
      Are you going to allow features selection during installation?
      
       Thank you !
    • Hi Dmitry,
      We haven't previously received requests similar to yours.
      We will consider introducing this functionality in future versions but in any case, this is not something that you should expect in near term.
      It would be great if you create a feature request in ReSharper issue tracker at http://youtrack.jetbrains.net/issues/RSRP so that we could have it on our radar while you and other users were able to track its progress and vote for it. Thank you!
