Codacy vs Visual Studio: What are the differences?

Developers describe Codacy as "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. On the other hand, Visual Studio is detailed as "State-of-the-art tools and services that you can use to create great apps for devices, the cloud, and everything in between". Visual Studio is a suite of component-based software development tools and other technologies for building powerful, high-performance applications.

Codacy can be classified as a tool in the "Code Review" category, while Visual Studio is grouped under "Integrated Development Environment".

"Automated code review" is the primary reason why developers consider Codacy over the competitors, whereas "Intellisense, ui" was stated as the key factor in picking Visual Studio.

Microsoft, Starbucks, and Intuit are some of the popular companies that use Visual Studio, whereas Codacy is used by Codacy, InstaGIS, and DocEngage. Visual Studio has a broader approval, being mentioned in 676 company stacks & 1010 developers stacks; compared to Codacy, which is listed in 44 company stacks and 23 developer stacks.

    I use Visual Studio because it provides me best default configuration for development. Less choice helps me concentrate on the product. In a sense it is iPhone of software development for me. When my laptop broke, I just download latest version of VS and start coding without any configuration. For sure it has best editor in terms of perceived responsiveness. Could not say the same for IntelliJ IDEA unfortunately.

    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.

    We are an ASP.NET shop, so it is fitting that we use Visual Studio. The biggest advantage that VS gives us is the first-class debugger, and the ReSharper refactoring tools. We do use Sublime, Brackets, Vim, Emacs, and other editors in conjunction with VS since VS does can take a long time to load.

    An IDE which I use for at least ten years now. Roslyn is getting better and better, but VS Code seems better now. A bit obsolete concept, but the extra tools (like git integration, azure browsing, preset projects and solutions) makes it still very useful.

    Best open source, good replacement for Visual Studio. I'm using it as my development environment in C# and Dynamics 365 Business Central (extension development).
