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.
CodeStream turns 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 enhances your existing services by connecting them to your source tree.
Capture institutional knowledge about your codebase without disrupting existing workflows.
Discuss code with your teammates without leaving your editor, and it'll post to Slack or MS Teams. Your teammates can reply there and the entire thread will be visible in CodeStream, attached to the block of code in question.
CodeStream makes it simple to start a collaboration session with your teammates.
See some code you'd like to improve? Create an issue without leaving your editor by selecting the code and hitting a key. CodeStream enables continuous code review on any code, even after it's been merged, using your existing defect tracking tool of choice.
CodeStream works as a plugin for your IDE, which makes code conversations as easy as: select the code, type your comment.
Don't see your favorite editor listed above? Let us know.
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.
Your team knows a lot about your code but the knowledge is locked inside the heads of individual developers.
CodeStream helps to capture and share that knowledge, making your team happier, more productive and more resilient.
