P42 Code Review: Inline Comments and Hints

Code reviews and pull requests are essential for many teams to increase code quality and transfer knowledge. However, it is often tedious for reviewers to comment on minor issues such as readability and style.

P42 automatically reviews the readability and style of your commits and pull requests and suggests improvements and modernization opportunities. This automation frees up reviewers' time to check for potential bugs and the overall correctness of the pull request.

Starting November 2021, P42 for GitHub has several additional code review features:

Inline Comments

P42 now shows hints directly in your diffs, so you can easily see them when reviewing the code.
