CodeStream's cloud-based service and IDE plugins help dev teams discuss, review, and understand code.
Discussing code is now as simple as commenting on a Google Doc — select the code and type your question.
Comment threads are automatically repositioned as your code changes, even across branches. This allows CodeStream to turn conversation into documentation by capturing all of the discussion about your code, and saving it with your code. All with zero effort on your part.
CodeStream servers do not require access to your codebase. Discussion threads are linked to blocks of code through references. Messages are always encrypted in transit and at rest.
Love your editor? No switching required. Communicate across all your team’s IDEs seamlessly.
We sync across branches to keep your conversations and code references accurate - even on local versions.
Asking a question is a simple as selecting the code and typing. Keep your focus on coding without switching context.
/*Legacy code comments*/ are effective because of their proximity to the code they refer to. CodeStream works the same way, linking content to blocks of code.
If you have a question about code, the best person to ask is the author(s). CodeStream automatically does a git-blame for you and at-mentions them as you type your question.
When a new message referring to a block of code is posted, clicking on it will open your editor to the correct file, scrolled to the location that contains the codeblock.
