Codecov vs IntelliJ IDEA: What are the differences?

Developers describe Codecov as "Hosted coverage reports with awesome features to enhance your CI workflow". Our patrons rave about our elegant coverage reports, integrated pull request comments, interactive commit graphs, our Chrome plugin and security. On the other hand, IntelliJ IDEA is detailed as "Capable and Ergonomic IDE for JVM". Out of the box, IntelliJ IDEA provides a comprehensive feature set including tools and integrations with the most important modern technologies and frameworks for enterprise and web development with Java, Scala, Groovy and other languages.

Codecov and IntelliJ IDEA are primarily classified as "Code Coverage" and "Integrated Development Environment" tools respectively.

Some of the features offered by Codecov are:

  • Beautiful Reports
  • Pull Request Comments
  • Interactive Commit Graphs

On the other hand, IntelliJ IDEA provides the following key features:

  • Smart Code Completion
  • On-the-fly Code Analysis
  • Advanced Refactorings

"More stable than coveralls" is the primary reason why developers consider Codecov over the competitors, whereas "Fantastically intelligent" was stated as the key factor in picking IntelliJ IDEA.

Asana, Square, and Intuit are some of the popular companies that use IntelliJ IDEA, whereas Codecov is used by Repro, ContentSquare, and homezen. IntelliJ IDEA has a broader approval, being mentioned in 805 company stacks & 1028 developers stacks; compared to Codecov, which is listed in 49 company stacks and 28 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.

Coveralls

We use Codecov because it's a lot better than Coveralls. Both of them provide the useful feature of having nice web-accessible reports of which files have what level of test coverage (though every coverage tool produces reasonably nice HTML in a directory on the local filesystem), and can report on PRs cases where significant new code was added without test coverage.

That said, I'm pretty unhappy with both of them for our use case. The fundamental problem with both of them is that they don't handle the ~1% probability situations with missing data due to networking flakiness well. The reason I think our use case is relevant is that we submit coverage data from multiple jobs (one that runs our frontend test suite and another that runs our backend test suite), and the coverage provider is responsible for combining that data together.

I think the problem is if a test suite runs successfully but due to some operational/networking error between Travis/CircleCI and Codecov the coverage data for part of the codebase doesn't get submitted, Codecov will report a huge coverage drop in a way that is very confusing for our contributors (because they experience it as "why did the coverage drop 12%, all I did was added a test").

We migrated from Coveralls to Codecov because empirically this sort of breakage happened 10x less on Codecov, but it still happens way more often than I'd like.

I wish they put more effort in their retry mechanism and/or providing clearer debugging information (E.g. a big "Missing data" banner) so that one didn't need to be specifically told to ignore Codecov/Coveralls when it reports a giant coverage drop.

IntelliJ IDEA is our polyglot IDE of choice. We use it esentially for all programming and coding aswell as some basic database management and planning. IntelliJ IDEA has proven to be a reliable companion in developing our various software.

If Scala and Spring are the gods gifts in terms of programming languages and opinionated-frameworks, then JetBrain's IntelliJ IDEA is the IDE equivalent.

Words don't do it justice.

We use IntelliJ IDEA because it has great support for both Python and JS. In particular, its type-based code analyses, refactoring tools, and debugger are world class
