Poetically simple code review

Poetically simple code review

By John Rothfels on November 1, 2016

Begin code review. Too many lines, what to do? Hmm. LGTM?

Theres a better way to review fast but ensure good code quality:

One-click jump-to-def and hover over for docs. Save time and focus:

Find refs globally. See where the codes being used. Learn by example

A good example is worth a thousand lines of documentation.

Search across symbols when youre looking for something, but its not onscreen:

Stop context-switching and getting lost line by line in so many tabs.

Theres a better way a Google Chrome extension. Try it out today.

No more git cloning, no more grepping and moaning. Just point, click, review.

(P.S. with Go support, and TypeScript and JavaScript in beta more langs on the way.)

P.P.S. Each stanza of this post was a haiku. If you think theres something poetic about good code and good code reviews, follow us on Twitter or check out Sourcegraph.

Would you like go-to-def and find-refs on GitHub?
