GhostDoc & Comments

If you’re using Visual Studio, writing XML comments, and aren’t using GhostDoc then you’re wasting time. It’s one of the handful of tools that I install alongside VS first thing on any clean install. Just wrote a new method to solve world hunger? Ctrl + Shift + C and GhostDoc will take a stab at filling in the comments for you. The hit ratio isn’t perfect, but it’s always faster to tweak the results and fill in blanks than starting from scratch in my experience and another side effect is that it encourages you to give a bit more thought/consistency to method/variable names.
