Visual Commander is a freemium extension that automates repetitive tasks in Visual Studio and SQL Server Management Studio giving you easy access to Visual Studio extensibility API and automatically recording text editing macros that can be played back multiple times. Lightweight extensions written in C# or VB can hook to Visual Studio events and automatically perform custom tasks when needed. Commands can modify selected text in the code editor, understanding code elements via Visual Studio code model or Roslyn. You can call these commands from the menu or with keyboard shortcuts. It is possible to hide distracting elements from Visual Studio UI and change private IDE options. More than 70 sample commands and extensions are available in the corresponding site section, plus you can reuse existing Visual Studio macros from previous versions of the IDE.
HTML 11 shows a preview of static and dynamic web pages you are currently editing in Visual Studio, on desktop and mobile devices. The preview for static .html pages is updated as you type. The preview for dynamic .cshtml, .vbhtml, .aspx and .razor pages is updated when you save a document. You can position preview tool windows alongside the HTML editor or outside the main Visual Studio window, e.g. on a second monitor. HTML is rendered using Chromium Embedded Framework v92. The mobile device preview is simulated with Chromium DevTools Device Mode and you can open a page on a running Android emulator.
Task Canvas lets you work with multiple code fragments without switching tabs and jumping from place to place within a file. Task Canvas interface is also task-focused to reduce information overload and make multitasking easy. All currently open document tabs and code blocks are automatically saved in the current task context. It is most useful when you have repeatable periodic tasks or work on several tasks in parallel.
Runtime Flow in real time monitors and logs function calls and function parameters in a running .NET application and shows a stack trace tree. No instrumentation or source code required for monitoring. Most useful if you inherited a very complex .NET codebase and want to understand the flow in detail, when the code contains a lot of delegates/events making traditional debugging a nightmare, when having a problem with a 3rd party .NET library without source code - Runtime Flow can pinpoint specific code areas that are responsible for the selected use case. Can work as a standalone portable application and can be integrated in Visual Studio.
ESharper lets you interactively write lightweight User Defined Functions (UDF) and commands in Excel using C#. As you change code in the Excel custom task pane or in the Visual Studio editor, the updated functions immediately become available in the current running Excel instance. You can create global functions available for any workbook on your computer and workbook functions stored in a .xlsx file.
Regent creates a search and replace regular expression from a single example to update all similar text fragments at once. You don't need to remember different regular expressions rules and special characters anymore. Regent supports regular expressions syntax used in Microsoft Word, Perl compatible regular expressions and standard ECMAScript syntax.
Visual Time Spent automatically tracks your time spent working on solutions, projects and documents in Visual Studio. You can generate reports to see overall time spent and what activities took most time. All your activity such as editing and browsing in Visual Studio is automatically recorded to a database. Idle time (when you don't use Visual Studio for more than 2 minutes) is automatically excluded from the report. You can export the report to a CSV file for analysis in Excel or another application, or use an API to programmatically retrieve activity statistic collected by the Visual Time Spent monitoring module.
