What is Code Climate?

After each Git push, Code Climate analyzes your code for complexity, duplication, and common smells to determine changes in quality and surface technical debt hotspots.

What is Coverity Scan?

Coverity's implementation of static analysis can follow all the possible paths of execution through source code (including interprocedurally) and find defects and vulnerabilities caused by the conjunction of statements that are not errors independent of each other.

What is PullReview?

PullReview helps Ruby and Rails developers to develop new features cleanly, on-time, and with confidence by automatically reviewing their code.

        #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!

        PullReview is an amazing tool to improve your workflow by doing code review without having to intervene. Just push your feature branches and wait for the review to finish. This ensures you don't have to stop coding while you reap the benefits of spotting mistakes or code that needs a refactor before it is merged.

        The team is helpful, responds quickly and knows their stuff. Give it a go!

        Review ofCode ClimateCode Climate

        This is one of the key tools I can't leave out when I'm working on a project, basically it is mandatory for me to use it on my Ruby on Rails projects. I think the price is a little expensive for a "Solo plan" but if you can get your client to pay, it's definitely worth it. You or the future developers that will continue with the project will thank you!

        Review ofPullReviewPullReview

        I liked how fast it all went with installing Pull Review and also that in a glance I know on which part I still have to work to become better. Last but not least, responsiveness is one of the team's strength: whenever you'd need help or have a question, they'll reply in no time. Totally recommended!

        Very helpful code review. Team very quick to respond to issues problems.

        We use it as part of CI process to check code quality, to ensure that we're not inadvertently making common mistakes and can keep the smells and scope of code changes in line and clean. Having this step here should make future support and additions much more efficient and easy to understand.
