Hi there 👋,
We hope you’re having a great time over the holidays if that’s your case 🏝 Either way, your friends at Codacy wish you a wonderful week!
Here are a few updates from July that we’ve been working on. There’s also a new webinar that you don’t want to miss, so keep on reading!
Improving Coverage experience
We’ve been working hard to make the experience with our coverage features more enjoyable for you. Our product squads have been focusing on:
- Fixing bugs;
- Increasing the stability of our system;
- Improving the existing features: better visibility of coverage errors, an enhanced granularity of coverage metrics, and the possibility of seeing coverage updates on PRs, among others.
All this invisible work will become visible to you soon!
Pylint updated to version 2.14.5
We just updated the Pylint tool to version 2.14.5 (the last stable version). The tool checks your Python code for errors and warnings, helps enforce a coding standard, sniffs for code smells, and offers simple refactoring suggestions.
Check out the entire list of all supported languages and tools.
Generate Checkstyle config files with Codacy Labs
Codacy Labs is a place where we do some experiments using the Codacy API and a web client to fulfill specific requests from some of our customers.
Our Solution Engineering team developed a solution that generates a configuration file based on your coding standards, and you can then use the file in your IDE. This was previously only available for PMD, but we now added Checkstyle as well!

“10x developers really exist” by David Saltares 💪
“Since the original 1968 article “Exploratory experimental studies comparing online and offline programming performance”, there has been a lot of debate around the figure of the 10x developer. We’re talking about engineers who are an order of magnitude better than their peers by whatever measure. These engineers exist, but not in the way most people describe them.” Keep reading here →
