CodeGrip introduction

CodeGrip’s vision is to be a productivity booster for technology teams and make everyone a part of enhancing code quality. Companies write better code by making it super easy and engaging to monitor code quality. CodeGrip calculates and presents relevant Software Analysis to help stakeholders make informed decisions and continuously improve the software and SDLC processes.

  • Static source code analysis, either on the cloud or an on-premise solution.
  • In-depth detection of Security Vulnerabilities, providing detailed lists on where the vulnerabilities appear, their correlation to Security standards, providing remediation clues and assessing remediation progress.
  • Quality Defects detection that affects important software characteristics: Reliability, Maintainability, Duplication, and Coverage.
  • Calculates your code health based on the number of violations, complexity, design, code size.
  • Detection of Duplicate Code.

You can also share the analysis to consume elsewhere through CodeGrip’s Share Analysis switch and the screenshot of the page will be shared with the team member.

Challenge companies face in having code review practice

  • Lengthy Manual Code Review Process involves many skills, experience, and patience. The issues or errors discovered in this review will greatly help to increase the efficiency of the firm and will take a lot of time and experienced professionals to find the issues.  
  • Code Reviews practices are often not standardized and depend on human judgment
  • Impact of Code quality remains under the jurisdiction of developers only
  • The impact of good vs bad code is not palpable to most business leaders

The way CodeGrip solves those limitations

Within a few seconds, automatically scans the code for bugs, code smells and vulnerabilities when the developer commits the code.

Lightweight code review: 

Code review tools help overcome the shortcomings associated with each approach listed above. Tools automate the mundane tasks of code review and can package source files, send reviewer notifications, facilitate overall communication, and ensure that defects are tracked and resolved.

  • Suggested solutions: CodeGrip not only shows you the bugs, vulnerabilities, and duplication but also shows the location of the issues and suggestions to solve them. This helps the developer understand the reason for the issue, its potential downsides as well as the best solution for the same. CodeGrip acts as a live knowledge base for developers helping avoid similar issues next time.
