bitHound vs Codacy: What are the differences?

bitHound: Continuous analysis for Node.js projects. Identify risks and priorities in your dependencies and code. With faster deployment cycles, a hundred competing priorities and tight deadlines to juggle– your team has a lot on their plate. Uncover and focus on the critical issues impacting your team, avoid software pitfalls and ship with confidence; Codacy: Automated Code Review. Codacy is an automated code review tool for Scala, Java, Ruby, JavaScript, PHP, Python, CoffeeScript and CSS. It's continuous static analysis without the hassle. Save time in Code Reviews. Tackle your technical debt.

bitHound and Codacy belong to "Code Review" category of the tech stack.

Some of the features offered by bitHound are:

  • Do you know when your third party dependencies are at risk? bitHound gives you insight into the insecure, deprecated, outdated and unused packages impacting your software.
  • We analyze your code to help your team determine where focus is needed. Understand the mechanical issues impacting your codebase, reduce complexity and clutter, and gain insights that go beyond the command line with bitHound.
  • Whether it's formal issue management or the team's pending tech debt, it's important to get on top of these issues. bitHound offers an improved understanding of how the team is performing together and whether or not items are being left behind.

On the other hand, Codacy provides the following key features:

  • Monitoring of Technical Debt
  • Automated Code Review
  • New and Fixed Issues per commit

"Automatic dependency analysis" is the primary reason why developers consider bitHound over the competitors, whereas "Automated code review" was stated as the key factor in picking Codacy.

    I'm planning to create a web application and also a mobile application to provide a very good shopping experience to the end customers. Shortly, my application will be aggregate the product details from difference sources and giving a clear picture to the user that when and where to buy that product with best in Quality and cost.

    I have planned to develop this in many milestones for adding N number of features and I have picked my first part to complete the core part (aggregate the product details from different sources).

    As per my work experience and knowledge, I have chosen the followings stacks to this mission.

    UI: I would like to develop this application using React, React Router and React Native since I'm a little bit familiar on this and also most importantly these will help on developing both web and mobile apps. In addition, I'm gonna use the stacks JavaScript, jQuery, jQuery UI, jQuery Mobile, Bootstrap wherever required.

    Service: I have planned to use Java as the main business layer language as I have 7+ years of experience on this I believe I can do better work using Java than other languages. In addition, I'm thinking to use the stacks Node.js.

    Database and ORM: I'm gonna pick MySQL as DB and Hibernate as ORM since I have a piece of good knowledge and also work experience on this combination.

    Search Engine: I need to deal with a large amount of product data and it's in-detailed info to provide enough details to end user at the same time I need to focus on the performance area too. so I have decided to use Solr as a search engine for product search and suggestions. In addition, I'm thinking to replace Solr by Elasticsearch once explored/reviewed enough about Elasticsearch.

    Host: As of now, my plan to complete the application with decent features first and deploy it in a free hosting environment like Docker and Heroku and then once it is stable then I have planned to use the AWS products Amazon S3, EC2, Amazon RDS and Amazon Route 53. I'm not sure about Microsoft Azure that what is the specialty in it than Heroku and Amazon EC2 Container Service. Anyhow, I will do explore these once again and pick the best suite one for my requirement once I reached this level.

    Build and Repositories: I have decided to choose Apache Maven and Git as these are my favorites and also so popular on respectively build and repositories.

    Additional Utilities :) - I would like to choose Codacy for code review as their Startup plan will be very helpful to this application. I'm already experienced with Google CheckStyle and SonarQube even I'm looking something on Codacy.

    Happy Coding! Suggestions are welcome! :)

    Thanks, Ganesa

    It is very important to have clean code. To be sure that the code quality is not really bad I use a few tools. I love SonarQube with many relevant hints and deep analysis of code. codebeat isn't so detailed, but it can find complexity issues and duplications. Codacy cannot find more bugs then your IDE. The winner for me is SonarQube that shows me really relevant bugs in my code.
