Redesign of the code patterns page πŸ‘©β€πŸŽ¨

We know the navigation of our code patterns page was not ideal: it was not obvious that the tool name was clickable, which impacted our users’ ability to configure their rules.

We did a quick redesign of the code patterns to improve the visualization of the selected tool, by moving the on/off toggles to the left-hand side.

Diff Coverage now has a βˆ… (nil) value πŸ™Œ

Diff coverage was blocking PRs when the diff contained only files not eligible for coverage (like tests and documentation), and it was not possible to use the Diff coverage gate.

Now, if a pull request doesn’t add or modify any coverable lines, the diff coverage is set to βˆ… (not applicable).

What it means for you:

  • No more PRs blocked if changes are only on files containing no coverage information.
  • A new result for the diff coverage is seen on the UI (βˆ…) so that you know that a coverage report was received but there are no actual coverable lines on that report.

Software developers are becoming one of the most important resources in the world. However, the average organization wastes up to 42% of its development time due to technical debt. That’s why we created a simple ROI calculator to show you how much you can save by using automated code reviews with Codacy.
