NuGet Packages


NOTE: The VSIX was discontinued for the following reasons:

  • VSIX releases of an analyzer do not cause compilations to fail despite displaying errors.
  • The analyzer should not be exclusive to a single IDE as an extension, but available to other platforms as a NuGet package.

A VSIX is in the (very distant future) plans for more user-friendly consumption of the feature, by offering some UI to handle the system. Likewise, a Rider extension might be developed as well.


Include a reference to the GenericsAnalyzer and GenericsAnalyzer.Core NuGet packages in the desired projects individually.

It is likely that the installation of the analyzer in a project in Visual Studio may cause its behavior to be fuzzy, so it is recommended to restart Visual Studio.

There are no supported framework assets in this package.
