Code refactoring is a crucial aspect of software development that involves improving the quality of existing code without changing its external behavior. The process of refactoring can help make code more readable, maintainable, and efficient.
In the last article, we discussed code refactoring techniques. You can read the article here. In this article, we are going to look into some of the tools that can help you in refactoring the code.
This tool ranges from web applications to IDE extensions. Now, let’s get started.
It is easy to use, first install the extension to VS Code. After installing, if you open a JS or TS-related file, then you will see a ‘💡’ icon if you have any code to refactor. Once you click on it, you will see the suggestion. You can click on the suggestion to edit the code automatically.
It can help improve team workflow in a number of ways. Here are a few examples:
- Reducing Errors
- Increasing Productivity
- Enhancing Code Quality
Track, collaborate, and prioritize technical debt from your IDE.
Stepsize is a tool that helps you track and fix tech debt in your codebase. It works with most code editors and project management tools. Stepsize has been meticulously designed to focus on context and prioritization so that you’ll always know which debt is worth your time. Developers can use Stepsize to document and fix issues in their codebase. This is helping them to improve the quality of their code and reduce the risk of problems.
It integrates with other project management tools, such as Jira, as well as Slack, BitBucket, and GitHub. You can create & view code issues directly from your editor.
They are using Stepsize to document and fix issues in their codebase. This is helping them to improve the quality of their code and reduce the risk of problems.
SonarLint is an IDE extension that helps you detect and fix quality issues
Fast and secure verification of code uniqueness. Increasing code quality.
AppRefactoring is an online tool that provides automated source code analysis and detailed reports to help uniquely develop applications. It helps create professional code by avoiding bans from the App Store and Google Play services. The tool also assists in detecting unscrupulous developers, freelance programmers, and contractors. AppRefactoring can be used to analyze code to identify potential problems. This is helping them to identify and fix potential problems early on, which is helping them to improve the quality of their code and reduce the risk of problems.
It can help with the fast and high-quality changes of the same code and work with template applications. AppRefactoring uses a variety of techniques to improve code, including:
- Code Analysis
- Code Refactoring
- Code Reviews
Secure your code as it’s written with static application security testing built by, and for, developers.
This tool analyzes the codebase to detect bugs and security issues. It uses the DeepCode engine for analyzing the codebase. It also provides fix advice to solve and prevent any errors. It can help developers to collaborate on fixing vulnerabilities. This is helping them to work together more effectively and deliver better products faster.
You can just need to connect your codebase through GitHub. You can use their code editor extension to scan code directly from the code editor. You can also automate it for checking any PR that is made to your codebase for any vulnerabilities.
Here are some additional ways that engineering teams can use Snyk Code:
- Automate security scans
- Integrate with developers
- Get notified of new vulnerabilities
These code refactoring tools will help you in writing better code. The tool will guide them based on the pattern that they have encountered previously. In this way, you will not be missing small details and you can have an overall look at the project.
I hope this article has helped in knowing some code refactoring tools that you can use. Thanks for reading the article.
