How often have you encountered code that’s incomprehensible? Usually, it’s inconsistent formatting, invalid comments and lack of naming conventions that make code unreadable. Such inconsistencies are often overlooked as petty anomalies, but they can make a big difference in the overall maintainability of code. StyleCop is a great tool to maintain style and format consistency in your source code.

Like Visual Studio Code Analysis, StyleCop performs static code analysis. However, unlike Visual Studio Code Analysis, it scans through source code files rather than managed code. Moreover, StyleCop only validates for style inconsistencies and doesn’t perform code optimization and performance checks. In this article, I’ll introduce StyleCop, show you how it works and discuss what factors you should consider when adopting it in your project.

The VS template is a good starting base, however, I have been adding the libraries of this post to every new web project, they act as a completion to the ones shipped with VS and I wanted to share them with you. 1 – CSS Normalizer One common problem we used to face is the fact that every browser has different default settings. If you don’t explicitly style an element (a tag), it may not look the same cross-browsers. The image above shows the following code with and without resetting: Today, the de facto CSS resetting tool is Normalize.css, it does much more than my demo above to target cross-browsers differences. Quoting the authors: Normalize.css makes browsers render all elements more consistently and in line with modern standards.
