    As a new user of JustCode who has previously been testing out ReSharper, I first want to say that one thing I like quite a bit better is the look and feel, and the layout of the menu items. Something I notice immediately which I miss, however, is the ability to create or import code rules.

    The hints that are there are excellent, and I like that you can enable/disable them individually, but they are missing two things that I see:
    1. The ability to press a button to implement the change automatically
    2. The ability to create new hints (and likewise, import and export those hints)

    Such a framework would allow a large array of plugins, such as a StyleCop plugin, and plugins for using certain assemblies which not everyone wants hints on (replacing certain iterations with Linq statements, perhaps utilizing a third party library to simplify a certain code pattern...

    I'm loving the options that are here, but since there are essentially an unlimited number of coding styles and hints that might be useful to various people, it seems like opening that up would make a lot of sense. It makes it not matter so much how many code rules or hints are built in by default if they can be created as needed.

    I'm sure it's been discussed, and it's likely not at the top of the list, but I just wanted to voice my opinion. Anyway, it's back to VS2010 to work with JustCode some more for me :)

    Hi Ben,

    Thanks for the great feedback!
    We have plans to open up JustCode for extensibility. I can't give you 100% accurate estimation when it will happen but we are already working on that.
    Good to know that our plans are in sync with customer's suggestions :)

    Best wishes,
