CodeStream's IDE plugins help dev teams take the pain out of code reviews, resolve issues faster, and improve code quality by simplifying remote and asynchronous communication among developers on your team, anywhere. With CodeStream, discussing code is now as simple as highlighting the code and typing your question.
Request or perform code reviews right inside your IDE without breaking from your development flow. Review changes in the context of the full source tree, using your favorite keybindings and environment.
CodeStream turns conversation into documentation by capturing all of the discussion about your code, and saving it with your code. Comment and code review threads are automatically repositioned as your code changes, even across branches. 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.
