At CodeImprover we are both pleased and proud to announce that our new GitHub Metrics app is available at no cost to everyone in GitHub Marketplace. We suggest that you
The five good reasons!
1: You will get better at writing maintainable, high-quality code
As a professional developer, you want the code that you are responsible for to be easy to navigate, both for yourself (in three months!) and especially for the benefit of your colleagues and successors. The CodeImprover Metrics GitHub app helps to ensure that your code is durable. That means it is easy to read, maintain, and further develop.
Unlike many other tools, the CodeImprover Metrics app offers immediate feedback on code quality every time you push a commit to GitHub. In other words, improving code quality is easy and intuitive, and can be done directly while you are working on it.
2: You become better at determining where you should concentrate your efforts in order to ensure good code quality
When it comes to ensuring high-quality coding, it is often difficult to decide where to begin and what should have priority. This is especially true when you are a developer and have to make adjustments to existing code.
CodeImprover Metrics GitHub app takes a balanced measurement of the code quality across a number of key parameters. This means that you get a lot of insight into where it makes the most sense to take action, where you get the highest quality for your efforts, and where you might be able to compromise.
You get this information directly in GitHub in connection with every commit you push and for each pull request, you create.
3: You have a better opportunity to document the quality of your coding skills.
With the CodeImprover Metrics app, it is easy to document that you are developing high-quality code. This happens automatically, as each commit and pull request is provided with a rating that shows the quality of your unique contributions to the code base.
Since commits and pull requests are evaluated solely based on the changes you make, you can achieve a good rating, even when working with a codebase that has a lower overall code quality.
4: The app is free and easy to install, and only visible when you opt for that
The free GitHub app offered by CodeImprover can be installed quickly and easily, directly into the GitHub account. That makes it accessible for all of the repositories owned by the account.
The results from CodeImprover are shown along with any other GitHub checks, which makes it possible to introduce minimum requirements to the code quality while merging pull requests at the same time, in exactly the same way as other GitHub apps and actions.
5: CodeImprover opens up new vistas and you can go along for the ride
The CodeImprover Metrics GitHub app is the start of a journey into coding quality, and you can be sure to expect more from us. We are planning a web portal that compiles quality development over time, contributed by developers with insight into multiple fields and branches.
