NDepend enabled all features for .NET Core 2.0 Visual Studio projects..


NDepend is a static code analyser for .NET projects. NDepend performs a range of analyses across a solution to make the projects better with code. Now day .NET Core stack is the hot stuff in the Microsoft development technologies due to cross platform development. Recently I found that NDepend also start analysing .NET Core 2.0, ASP.NET Core 2.0 and .NET Standard 2.0 Visual Studio projects from latest Version v2017.3.1.

What’s New

All NDepend favorite features now work seamlessly with any .NET Core 2.0, ASP.NET Core 2.0 and .NET Standard 2.0 Visual Studio projects.


Here is the web report for the .NET Core web application and it also includes all the previously support features for a .NET Framework project.


There are few another improvement in newer version of NDepend.

  • Guide Tooltip for Beginners and these guide tooltips now explain the basics of NDepend UI panels as you can see in below image:


  • There are more than 50 improvements on the default rule-set to avoid matching false positives in various situations to make results Less False Positives and it also include ASP.NET, ASP.NET Core and WPF projects.
  • UI responsiveness has been improved in Visual Studio when running NDepend analysis or loading an analysis result.
  • More than 30 bugs fixed and dozen improvements done in this release.


NDepend has made good improvement in .NET Core projects analyses. In Visual Studio 2017, Dashboard and other reports are responsive. It is nice tool to Static Analyses for .NET and its successors .NET Core also.
