Our great sponsors
  • SonarQube - Static code analysis for 29 languages.
  • InfluxDB - Access the most powerful time series database as a service
  • SaaSHub - Software Alternatives and Reviews
  • Rubycritic

    A Ruby code quality reporter

    It's also possible to write unit tests in order to better understand or surface your assumptions about a legacy application. I'd also consider running rubycritic against legacy code, to see where the code smells and other hot spots lie.

  • YARD

    YARD is a Ruby Documentation tool. The Y stands for "Yay!"

    If you're looking to generate docs from source, there's always the yard gem. If you want a diagram of your Rails models you might try railroady. Neither will create comments in your code, which is what I understand is doing for you.

  • SonarQube

    Static code analysis for 29 languages.. Your projects are multi-language. So is SonarQube analysis. Find Bugs, Vulnerabilities, Security Hotspots, and Code Smells so you can release quality code every time. Get started analyzing your projects today for free.
