DotPeek from Jetbrains–replacement for .Net Reflector

DotPeek is the latest free replacement for .Net Reflector from JetBrains (the makers of ReSharper). (link)


What I like about DotPeek:

  • I use ReSharper, so the navigation features come naturally to me.
  • Many of the navigation features are not available in any of the other tools (eg: Find Usages)
  • Displays resources embedded within the dll/exe
  • Allows you to load up v2.0 and v4.0 dlls

What I don’t like:

  • Doesn’t seem to allow you to view the contents of the resources embedded within the module. (Probably will show up in a future release).

Overall – it works great. I like it.
