May Product Update: Repository list, performance improvements, UX improvements, and more 🚀




Here are the product updates from May! This month we bring you new features, product improvements, and more interesting news to come. 🤩

We also always share our public product roadmap so you can check the features and updates that are in progress and the ones that will be coming out soon, as well as vote on the most important ones for you!

Guide developers on Codacy’s usage 🙌

Users are now guided through the available configuration options and the most relevant Codacy features, to make sure they know how to use Codacy to its full potential!

After the analysis, this phase covers the following tours:

  • Adding an organization / Organizations
  • Adding a repository
  • Code patterns (inside a Repository)

Add a summary to your merge request on GitLab 🎉

From now on, users can turn on the merge request summary comments in Codacy when using GitLab. This feature shows the overall changes in the merge request, including new issues and metrics such as complexity and duplication. This will also be available in the next Self-Hosted release. Learn more in our docs.

Repository List performance improvements 💪

We identified that organizations with a very high number of repositories didn’t have a satisfactory experience when using the repository list. Because of this, we made some changes to improve the loading times for these customers.
With this optimization, we now provide a much better experience when performing searches, as well as when entering Codacy.

Codacy Self-hosted v4.0.1 🚀

We’ve released new versions of Codacy Self-hosted – v4.0.0 and v4.0.1.

✅ Product enhancements: Improved the loading time of the repositories list page, and Codacy now allows configuring who is allowed to manage file extensions and branches.
✅ Tool version updates
✅ Bug fixes

How long does it take for your team to engage with a code review? 👨‍💻

We have been working on a set of dashboards to combine the quality insights you already have, with productivity insights you need.Discover how long it takes your team to interact with pull requests, and how long it takes to merge after they are approved with new metrics.pulseIdentify which work items are about to become or have become blockers and may need an action to move forward by following each open pull request. Follow a high-level view of the current work in progress of your teams, grouped by phase.Screenshot 2021-06-02 at 10.28.42Pulse is currently in an Open Beta!

News & What’s to come

Standardize patterns across multiple repositories 💻

Now that you’re able to copy patterns from one repository to another, we’re extending this functionality on an organizational level, so that you can easily apply patterns to multiple repos at the same time.

This will help you ensure, in a quick and easy way, the standardization of code patterns across your repositories.

Below is a sneak peek 👇 we’d love to get your feedback here →

Add markdownLint with 1-click commit suggested fixes 🚀

We’re going to add markdownlint as the default tool for Markdown, replacing RemarkLint. This will allow you to benefit from the 1-click commit automatic fixes on GitHub!
