Automating/batching ReSharper Code Inspections

Is there any possibility of a command-line version of ReSharper's code
inspections, so that automate code inspection that exactly matched
ReSharper's inspections (and settings) could be performed as, for example,
part of a nightly build report? Just a line by line text output of all the
warnings flagged by ReSharper's code inspection features would be great.

Does such a thing exist? Will such a thing ever exist? I'd love to be able
to incorporate ReSharper into our continuous integration process, validating
that checked in code passes inspection, and raising flags if it doesn't.
Ultimately, it'd be nice to be able to do things like require that a file is
"green" before being allowed to be checked in, but perhaps that is asking
for too much :)

Any comments or ideas about this?

Hello Paul,

We are considering this as an opportunity for one of our next versions. Currently
it is theoretically possible to create such tool, probably even outside JetBrains.
Practicaly, it is too much work to be done.

Okay. I'll just emphasize that it would make Resharper more useful in
continuous integration/continuous build environments, so that the build
environment could spit out a text log of all Resharper analysis issues that
matches exactly what developers see in their development environment
(matching the suggestion/hint/warning/error settings for the project or
solution).

I haven't gotten to implementing this yet, but I'm assuming there's an easy
way to share those settings across for code analysis and inspection across
teams, right? :)

That's exactly one of the points :) Only a subset of R# settings is currently
shareable. The automated tool could use a copy of R# settings XML file from
one of the boxes, of course, but in this case it won't be "live" on any changes
to the settings.

I think that it would be valuable for all teams to have the possibility to share such settings.
I understand and agreee that this would not necessarily be automated, but it is easy to ask all the team members to import a settings file (which is not likely to change too often)

That's what we do for Code Style already...and I feel we lose some of the power of Resharper by not having all the same code inspections.
This may end up in continuous code changes just for coding preferences.

For example, I love to use "this." in front of my properties/members, but my colleague hate it...and I keep adding it and he keeps removing it...

I just saw one codeplex project (http://rsm.codeplex.com/) that aims to do so.
And if you'd like to make it shareable, why not making the option available through a TeamCity server?

Continue your great work making our developer life a pleasure

Best regards
Julien
