MergeBoard enhances your familiar unified diff by analyzing the structure of your source code instead of just treating it as text. This makes it possible to hide irrelevant modifications, such as style changes or invariant changes, highlight those that are rather hard to spot and even group similar changes.
Integrates with the tools you use
Use MergeBoard to accelerate your code reviews while keeping your existing tools and workflows. We focus on providing you with best review experience and integrate with your existing software instead of trying to replace them.
Never review the same code twice!
Reviewing large changes can be difficult, especially if they cannot be split into smaller commits. You can easily lose track and forget which code segments you’ve already reviewed. With MergeBoard, you never have to review a piece of code twice: Simply mark which lines you have already checked and continue reviewing at a later time. This even works if a new revision is pushed in the meantime!
Writing prose to explain how to achieve a particular error condition is tedious and can lead to misunderstandings. With MergeBoard you can simply reference any number of lines in your comment, even across files, to make it crystal clear what you are referring to.
All info in one place
Using MergeBoard does not mean that you have to say goodbye to your familiar tools. Our software integrates well with external issue trackers, CI platforms and code analyzers to show you all relevant information in one place. Whether you want to block merges until the CI succeeds, close bugs after a merge or automatically track review time in your issue tracker, MergeBoard has you covered.
See who is needed to progress
As revisions pile and discussions grow, remembering who needs to act next might actually become hard. It does not have to be: MergeBoard uses a two-step process for change requests in which developers mark them as solved and reviewers as approved. It is therefore always clear who needs to act next and you can directly see in the dashboard where you are needed.
Pros from a business perspective
MergeBoard not only makes your software developers' lives easier, but also brings measurable benefits to your business. Code reviews take up a significant amount of time and are mentally exhausting. With MergeBoard you can get the benefits of code reviews, like knowledge sharing and fewer bugs, without some of the typical disadvantages. Give your developers the opportunity to do what they really like: writing code and implementing exciting features.
What Our Clients say
MergeBoard helps us focus only on relevant modifications through its great change visualization. We can now ship our code with much more confidence knowing we haven’t missed any introduced bugs during code review. This leads to a higher code update frequency and faster rollouts of new features.
The product MergeBoard inspires with its intuitive user interface and the therefore significant simplification of code reviews for complex application software. Our team not only learned the basic functionalities in a 4-hour workshop, but are now also experts in the usage of MergeBoard and have been using the software in their day-to-day business ever since.
MergeBoard makes it easier for us to introduce code reviews into our development workflow: Not only is the review process simple and the logic-based change representation state-of-the-art and straightforward, but also is the acceptance of MergeBoard by developers significantly higher compared to traditional tools.
