bitHound vs RuboCop: What are the differences?

Developers describe bitHound as "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. On the other hand, RuboCop is detailed as "A Ruby static code analyzer, based on the community Ruby style guide". RuboCop is a Ruby static code analyzer. Out of the box it will enforce many of the guidelines outlined in the community Ruby Style Guide.

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

"Automatic dependency analysis" is the top reason why over 4 developers like bitHound, while over 8 developers mention "Open-source" as the leading cause for choosing RuboCop.

RuboCop is an open source tool with 10.1K GitHub stars and 2.14K GitHub forks. Here's a link to RuboCop's open source repository on GitHub.

      For many(if not all) small and medium size business time and cost matter a lot.

      That's why languages, frameworks, tools, and services that are easy to use and provide 0 to productive in less time, it's best.

      Maybe Node.js frameworks might provide better features compared to Rails but in terms of MVPs, for us Rails is the leading alternative.

      Amazon EC2 might be cheaper and more customizable than Heroku but in the initial terms of a project, you need to complete configurationos and deploy early.

      Advanced configurations can be done down the road, when the project is running and making money, not before.

      But moving fast isn't the only thing we care about. We also take the job to leave a good codebase from the beginning and because of that we try to follow, as much as we can, style guides in Ruby with RuboCop and in JavaScript with ESLint and StandardJS.

      Finally, comunication and keeping a good history of conversations, decisions, and discussions is important so we use a mix of Slack and Twist

      #ContinuousIntegration

      The continuous integration process for our Rails backend app starts by opening a GitHub pull request. This triggers a CircleCI build and some Code Climate checks.

      The CircleCI build is a workflow that runs the following jobs:

      • check for security vulnerabilities with Brakeman
      • check code quality with RuboCop
      • run RSpec tests in parallel with the knapsack gem, and output test coverage reports with the simplecov gem
      • upload test coverage to Code Climate

      Code Climate checks the following:

      • code quality metrics like code complexity
      • test coverage minimum thresholds

      The CircleCI jobs and Code Climate checks above have corresponding GitHub status checks.

      Once all the mandatory GitHub checks pass and the code+functionality have been reviewed, developers can merge their pull request into our Git master branch. Code is then ready to deploy!
