ReSharper is suitable for all legacy and new projects. It helps keep the code clean, short and understandable. The color codes help you quickly identify what you are looking for, and the shortcuts are the best. While Visual Studio made progress on these points on its own, it seems to me that ReSharper has a lot to offer. Today it happens to me that I can't think of another productivity tool without thinking of ReSharper first.

Sonar
  • SonarLint highlights all the issues in our codes and also displays the severity of each issue.
  • SonarLint also provides suggestions for how to fix those code issues which are highlighted.
  • SonarLint starts the processing of the file as soon as it is opened and highlights all the issues which it found.
  • When we fix the issue, we don't even need to create a new build or generate fresh code quality report, as soon as we save the file with the changes, it does the processing again and shows the result if the issue is fixed or not.
  • SonarLint saves a lot of time and effort by saving us from doing fresh build every time and generating new code quality report every time, thus increasing the efficiency and output which is in return beneficial for the client.

Sonar
  • Sometimes, SonarLint does not highlight the issues in the code correctly.
  • The severity of the issues highlighted is according to the default rules set, we should also be given authority to set the severity of the issues.
  • The default fixes which SonarLint provides should be more enhanced and there should be more fixes available.
  • Sometimes it takes a lot of time for processing of the file when any new file is loaded or changes are saved in a file.
