StyleCop is an open-source static code analysis tool from Microsoft[1] that checks C# code for conformance to StyleCop's recommended coding styles and a subset of Microsoft's .NET Framework Design Guidelines. StyleCop analyses the source code, allowing it to enforce a different set of rules from FxCop (which, instead of source code, checks .NET managed code assemblies).[2][3] The rules are classified into the following categories:

  • Documentation
  • Layout
  • Maintainability
  • Naming
  • Ordering
  • Readability
  • Spacing

StyleCop includes both GUI and command-line versions of the tool. It is possible to add new rules to be applied.

StyleCop was re-released as an open-source project in April 2010 on CodePlex.

StyleCop 4.7.55 (November 10, 2016) is compatible with Visual Studio 2008, 2010, 2012, 2013, and 2015.[4] (Microsoft Visual Studio Extension)

StyleCop began a move to GitHub in December 2014,[5] and the last change applied to the CodePlex edition was November 11, 2016.[6]

StyleCop 5.0.6329.1 (April 30, 2017) works with Visual Studio 2012, 2013, 2015, and 2017.[7] (Windows Installer)

Development is stopping. A named successor is StyleCopAnalyzers, for Visual Studio 2015 and later.[citation needed]
