Code Health
What modules are expensive to maintain and at risk for defects?

Code quality issues cost time, money, and missed deadlines. It’s vital for decision making to know when you can safely move ahead and implement new features as well as when you might have to take a step back and improve what’s already there. That way, your system remains maintainable which is the foundation for developer productivity and great products.

CodeScene’s code health measure points gives you a straightforward overview that lets your team drill down to the code with actionable recommendations.

It’s a game changer – understanding the code quality of a large-scale codebase has never been this easy!

What is Code Health?
Find the code that’s expensive to maintain and at risk for defects.

Code health is an aggregated metric based on 25+ factors scanned from the source code. The code health factors are known – from research – to correlate with lower developer productivity and an increased risk for bugs. In addition to these delivery risks, independent researchers have found that low code health leads to a high number of total security errors. That’s important.

The CodeScene platform implements the code health metric for all major programming languages (e.g. C, C++, Java, C#, JavaScript, TypeScript, Go, Python) and many more. CodeScene also visualizes code health in an easily accessible way to support the communication between development teams and technical leaders. It’s fully automated, including quality gates in build pipelines and pull requests.

Visualize and measure code health across large codebases to identify problematic areas.

Automated code reviews with quality gates.
Supervise code health in pull requests

No matter what baseline we start from, we never want our code health to become worse. No one wants that, but it’s challenging to track given the scale of today’s software systems. CodeScene’s pull request integration lets you stay on top of it so that you can detect code quality issues via automated code reviews.

CodeScene automates the integration with all major Git hosting platforms like GitHub, BitBucket, Azure DevOps, and GitLab. We also support build pipelines like Jenkins, and offer an open REST API for custom integrations.

Actionable insights
An extra team member, available 24/7.

A codebase under active development is a moving target that’s going to change over time. This makes it challenging to manage code health issues. That’s why CodeScene is there to act as an extra team member that’s available all the time to support you and the team.

And just like a live team member, you can communicate your goals and feedback to CodeScene. CodeScene’s goal-oriented workflow lets you manage code health issues by specifying goals, which are then automatically supervised as a quality gate in Pull Requests. As such, goals fill an important role by adding what’s otherwise always missing from a code analysis: your context.

CodeScene identifies hotspots with low code health, which lets you prioritize the most critical code quality issues.
