    Reviews of Code Climate and RuboCop
    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!

    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.
