The SharePoint Code Analysis Framework (SPCAF) provides tools to analyze SharePoint code. This includes
SharePoint solutions (.wsp) for SharePoint 2007 / 2010 / 2013
SharePoint 2013 apps
SPCAF cannot only analyze assemblies like other tools as FxCop or SPDisposeCheck. It can also analyze all the XML code in SharePoint packages like Features, ContentTypes, ListTemplates and all the other files like controls (.ascx), pages (.aspx) and master pages (.master) etc.
SPCAF can be used directly in Visual Studio 2012 or 2010 to analyze SharePoint projects. It also provides a client application to analyze existing WSP packages, can be integrated into a Team Build via a custom build activity, it can be run on command line or as MSBuild task during each local build.
