SonarQube™ Alternatives

We know — there are a lot of options to pick from when you’re looking for an automated coding review platform. You might have already heard of SonarQube*, tried it out or turned into an active user of the platform. While it’s not bad by any means, it’s worth considering other options.

We Care about our UI

The ease-of-use of our competitor’s products often leaves something to be desired. We don’t get it — if you’re a developer relying on products every day, they just needs to work incredibly well. At Codacy, we’ve managed to wrap up a powerful feature set into an accessible, beautifully designed UI. It doesn’t matter where you are in the app, it’s always easy to get to the most important information. It’s also easy to configure — it only takes a couple of clicks to set up a dashboard that’s tailor-made to show the stats you care about the most.

Gone are the days of complex interfaces — SonarQube might have been one of the first to offer code analysis as a service, but its usability has become dated in recent years.

Smart and powerful features

Our product might look good, but we’re not just a pretty face — behind the scenes there’s powerful technology that helps you write better code without getting in the way.

For example, track your code quality without ever missing a beat by taking a quick look at the line graph in the middle of your dashboard – at a glance you’ll see the evolution of all relevant metrics over the last month, including all commits that have been made and the hotspots in your source code. On top of that, you can set up metrics that represent code quality — for example by limiting the project to under 15% issues and over 80% coverage.

With built-in security and performance checks, your code will be looking and running better than ever before. It’s also possible to totally customize your analysis by picking and choosing from the hundreds of rules we offer — or just upload your own configuration file, and we’ll take it from there.

Also, it’s extremely easy to include Codacy in your workflow. Everything about the platform is made to be flexible and effortlessly adapts to your code review process. Results can be pushed as comments to your pull requests or can be set to automatically pop up in your Slack channels, so you can easily keep track of them.

The best part? You’ll be able to get all of this regardless of your code language of choice. Codacy officially supports Scala, Java, JavaScript, Python, Ruby, PHP, Apex, JSP, XML, Velocity, VisualForce, C#, JSON and Kotlin. SonarSource makes great code analyzers - like SonarC# which even helps power Codacy's C# analysis, but thanks to our active community, we also offer languages that were added by our users — CoffeeScript, CSS, C/C++, Dockerfile, SASS, Shell Script, Swift, TypeScript, LESS, Go and SQL all work — and more are being added all the time.
