Powerful features wrapped in a beautifully designed UI

At Codacy Quality, we’ve managed to wrap up a powerful feature set into an accessible, beautifully designed UI. Yes, our product looks good, but we’re more than a pretty face.

Behind the scenes, powerful features help you write better code without us getting in the way. And you get all the important code quality metrics (issues, complexity, duplication, and coverage) in just one place.

Seamless integration

It doesn’t matter where you are on the tool; it’s always easy to get to the most important information. Codacy Quality is also easy to configure: it only takes a couple of clicks to set up a tailor-made dashboard to show the stats you care about the most.

Codacy Quality automatically checks every commit and PR as soon as it occurs. It provides immediate quality feedback directly inside your Git provider (GitHub, Bitbucket, or GitLab), flagging issues in-line, giving 1-click commit suggestions, and blocking bad merges.

Our tool is flexible and adapts to your code review process, allowing your team to get notified where it matters to them. For example, you can improve your team velocity by pushing results as comments in your PR or as notifications on Slack — it’s your choice.

  3. Get notified and take action.

Track code quality and coverage, and tackle technical debt

Codacy Quality helps you drill down on the evolution of your project’s quality with alerts on the most problematic areas, allowing you to get visibility into your code quality. With our tool, you can save time and make informed decisions by getting answers to your questions:

  • What is the state of my project’s code quality?
  • How much technical debt does my project have?
  • Which are the most problematic areas of my code?

You can track your code quality by taking a quick look at your dashboard. At a glance, you’ll see the evolution of all relevant metrics over the last month, including your commits. You can also have a broader analysis covering the last 3 months or a more detailed view of the last 7 days.

On top of that, you can set up metrics that represent code quality. For example, you can limit the project to under 15% of issues and at least 80% coverage. Codacy Quality will even identify what lines of code you’re not covering with tests. You can customize your analysis by picking from our hundreds of rules or uploading your configuration file.

All this will also give you visibility into your technical debt, allowing you to plan informed sprints by knowing what to tackle and how long it will take. With Codacy, you take control of your tech debt within minutes.

Codacy Quality gives you back control over your standards. You can customize your rule sets to align your team’s code quality standards and remove false positives. Define your quality threshold and make sure teams and projects publish healthy and consistent code.

Plus, our tool allows you to make sure your code quality is standardized across all teams and projects. With our organization coding standards feature, you can define and manage coding patterns in multiple repos simultaneously, which just a few clicks. As a result, you gain back time to focus on what you do best.

Everything can be tailored for your needs, allowing you to save time by knowing which set standards are being broken and getting insights on how to tackle them:

  1. Add your repos with a single click;
  2. Define and enforce your coding standards on every PR;
  3. See your quality report across all metrics and languages and take action.

Prevent security and performance issues

Are you worried about security issues and audits? Codacy Quality helps you prepare for any audit by flagging security issues as they enter your codebase. That way, you get security and performance checks early to prevent your product from being affected by vulnerabilities.

With our tool, you get an early alert system for critical issues, such as XSS, input validation, and hardcoded credentials. You’ll be able to quickly identify OWASP’s top 10 vulnerabilities and prevent critical issues from affecting your product. With these built-in security and performance checks, your code will look and run better than ever.
