SPCAF provides a MSBuild task which can be easily integrated into a SharePoint project. This task can be used to run the analysis for instance during every Release build.

Detected errors and warnings are added to the Error List in Visual Studio and can be directly fixed by the developer. This ensures that the required rules are followed already early during the development process to save refactoring and troubleshooting efforts.
