SonarLint VSIX Extension

This package skips automatic verification:

Requires Visual Studio installed

This package was approved as a trusted package on 12/6/2016.

SonarLint is a Visual Studio 2015 extension that provides on-the-fly feedback to developers on new bugs and quality issues injected into C# and VB.NET code. SonarLint for Visual Studio is based on and benefits from the .NET Compiler Platform ("Roslyn") and its code analysis API to provide a fully-integrated user experience in Visual Studio 2015. With version 2.0 you can now establish a connection to a SonarQube server and bind your Visual Studio solution to a SonarQube project. This operation automatically updates the rulesets of the solution and attaches the required Roslyn analyzers to the solution.

To install SonarLint VSIX Extension, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco install sonarlint-vs2015 --version

To upgrade SonarLint VSIX Extension, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:
