This blog has been silent for quite some time (over a year, ahem), I just didn’t have all that much to put on here. But now there is something new that I feel should be on here.
At the project I’m working on we’ve been using Sonar for a while to gather metrics of our code base. The problem is that there is no really easy way to navigate from the issues that Sonar has found to the actual source code locations.
To fix that I’ve created a little Visual Studio extension that lets you select a project that has analysis results in Sonar and shows you all the currently unresolved issues. It’s called Sonar Companion and can be found in the Visual Studio Gallery here, as well as through the Extensions and Updates window in Visual Studio.
The code for the extension is on Github and I’m open to pull requests if you’ve got any improvements. You can find the repo at http://github.com/sandermvanvliet/SonarCompanion
If you find this useful I’d love to hear from you, send me a tweet at @SanderMvanVliet
