When you share a codemark with your team, they can access it in their messaging stream. CodeStream now allows them to view that codemark in context, whether in their IDE or in GitHub, GitLab or Bitbucket. They just click on the link that best suits their needs to view the information in context where they will understand the question or issue faster, and be able to respond more effectively.
For codemarks shared to Slack or Microsoft Teams, you'll be able to open the codemark in your IDE directly from those posts , open the codemark on the web, or open the code on GitHub (and other VCS systems). Click the link that best meets your requirements.
This new capability also applies to permalinks, which allow you to share a codemark anywhere, not just in the supported messaging systems. This is a great way to share codemarks out to messaging services that we don't currently integrate with.
To create a link, just Select “Copy link” from the ellipses menu of any codemark.
Codemark permalinks make it easy for you to share code with your team, and makes it easy for them to see the context of what you're sharing by 1-click access to open the file in their editor, or on GitHub or Trello.
If you don't happen to have the given repo open, CodeStream will still open the file for you automatically if you've ever opened that repo while signed into CodeStream. If not, it will prompt the user to open the repo, and will remember the location so you don't have to do that again.
CodeStream 3.0 is available immediately.
Please share your thoughts and feedback @teamcodestream.
CodeStream helps development teams discuss, review and understand code. CodeStream links comments and issues directly to the code blocks they refer to, making them instantly available to everyone on the team.
Discussing code can be difficult which is why it doesn't happen often enough.
Schedule a personal demo with our product team and see how facilitating code discussion can streamline your team's code reviews and improve the quality of your code base.
