Visual Studio Solution Renamer

Allows to rename a solution, its projects and namespaces.

Get started

dotnet tool install -g vsrenamer_gui
vsrenamer_gui.exe

Under the hood

Here is the list of actions to be done during the process of renaming

  • Rename .sln file
  • Rename .csproj files
  • Rename parent folder of the projects
  • Update their relative paths in the .sln file
  • Set proper AssemblyName and RootNamespace in the .csproj files
  • Replace text in files. By default, *.cs *.xaml *.xml *.json *.asax *.cshtml *.config *.js

Limitations

  • A single solution file only (.sln)
  • A single project (.csproj) per folder
  • C# projects only
  • No source version control history support

Be aware

  • No backup feature
  • No roll-back feature
  • No proper symlinks support
  • Tested with
    • Microsoft Visual Studio Solution File, Format Version 12.00
    • Visual Studio Version 16 (2019)
  • It's strongly recommended to perform renaming with the following two steps:
    1. Replace file content, review the changes and commit (svn, git, etc.)
    2. Rename files and folders
