SharePoint 2013 Tool: Analysis code for WSP and APP

In SharePoint, most of the customization can be achieved without developing/writing custom solution. Some time we required a customization and during this customization the main concern on quality solution; we ensure the best practice & rules must be defined and follow.

These rules and policies must be defined (e.g. in customization policies) and must be accepted by all involved people, like developers, architects and also by the business side because these policies may limit the adaptability of SharePoint.

So there is no such a automated process that validate those rules during development face.

To deliver the quality standards as end result during earlier development face. Tool is created by Matthias Einig and Torsten Mandelkow  and name of the tool is SharePoint Code Analysis Framework(SPCAF).
