Code Review by Web Tool: Codestriker 1.9.5

Jul 07, 2008

Version 1.9.5 of Codestriker, a Web application that supports code reviewing by geographically distributed teams of developers has just been released. The new version offers sophisticated syntax highlighting.

This task is handled by the Highlight program, which was authored by André Simon. The GPL'd tool supports highlighting for more than 120 programming and markup languages including C, C++, Java, Perl, HTML, Ada95, Maya, and Relax-NG.

Codestriker will work with version control systems such as CVS, Subversion, Clearcase, Perforce, and Visual Sourcesafe, and bugtrackers such as Bugzilla. The current version also supports the Testdirector issue tracker. Thanks to the Scmbug integration software, which combines bug tracking and versioning, users can jump directly from the bug ID to the offending section of code. The current release supports version 0.9.5 of the LXR source code indexer.

Codestriker gives teams of developers the ability to compare and comment on source code, and thus handle the code review procedure online.

Author David Sitsky released version 1.0 of Codestriker back in 2001. At the time, the Perl application comprised a single CGI script. Sitsky wrote the program to provide a practical alternative to mailing source code diffs.

The Codestriker homepage has more details. The application is available as a source code archive here.
