After a good beta period with some users, we’re launching today a useful product feature: automatic comments on your pull requests with our code analysis results.
All our analysis issues can now be pushed automatically to your pull request page so you don’t have to comment yourself.
We believe this will be very useful to cut time off your code reviews.
Here’s what it looks like:
How to activate auto comments
This feature is not currently activated by default.
We didn’t activate automatic comments by default to try to minimize confusion (we didn’t want our users to start having comments from nowhere without opt-in).

Edit: We just published an ebook: “The Ultimate Guide to Code Review” based on a survey of 680+ developers. Enjoy!
Codacy is used by thousands of developers to analyze billions of lines of code every day!
Getting started is easy – and free! Just use your GitHub, Bitbucket or Google account to sign up.
