Welcome to ReSpeller home page!
ReSpeller is a powerful spell checker for JetBrains ReSharper that has no equivalents. ReSpeller is based on NHunspell spell checking engine ( and uses a part of IntelliJ IDEA dictionaries.

ReSpeller overview


  • ReSpeller supports several languages and file types:
    • C# and Visual Basic
      • Identifier checking
      • String literal checking
      • Comments checking
  • Native ReSharper suggests and refactorings
    In constrast to other spell checkers ReSpeller uses native ReSharper suggests and refactorings instead of context menu-like suggests: Local typo Non-local typo
    So when you fix typo in identifier you will get all benefits of ReSharper rename refactoring like renaming of dependent symbols, string literals etc.
  • Checking behavior
    • ReSpeller considers ReSharper naming rules like identifier suffixes and prefixes and doesn't perform checking of them.
    • ReSpeller doesn't check words with length less than 3, because in most cases it doesn't make sense.
    • If ReSpeller sees an incorrect word he tries to split this one into all kinds of word pairs and check each word in the pair separately. So words like "registrykey" or "wildhoney" will be accepted as correct despite the whole words are missing in the dictionary.
  • Inspecting typos in whole solution
    You can open ReSharper->Inspect->Code Issues in Solution to review all typos in your projects: img/inspections_window.png
  • Configurable severity of typo inspections
    You can also configure severity for different typo inspections in ReSharper Options->Inspection Severity page: img/severity.png
