Add SonarLint to your IDE for the earliest possible feedback. With SonarLint to catch new issues as you code, no one will ever see your mistakes. Plus, it’s free and open source!
Developers own quality in New Code and Pull Request analysis makes it easy to maintain a high standard. Handle issues at the PR stage to clean up the easy stuff before peer review even starts, boosting team velocity and saving time to focus on what’s important: the logic.
SonarLint + SonarQube are better together!
Take ownership of your Code Quality & Code Security from IDE to build!
SonarQube gives you more than just coding rules; a lot of work has gone into collecting and presenting the metrics you need in a way that's easy to understand. In fact, metrics are so important that we invented Cognitive Complexity to fill a gap in the industry standards.
SonarQube raises Cognitive Complexity issues on code that's structured in a way that is hard to understand. Studies show that complex code is more likely to be buggy, and confusing code could lead maintainers to add new Bugs. Use SonarQube as a guide to bring the Cognitive Complexity down and colleague comprehension up.
