Are you tired of spending countless hours trying to understand your codebase? Do you find code reviews and onboarding new developers a daunting task? If so, you're not alone.

Many development teams face challenges when it comes to comprehending their codebase, especially in rapidly evolving projects or legacy applications. But fear not, because CodeSee is here to revolutionise the way you understand and interact with your code.

What is

CodeSee is a powerful code visibility platform that automates codebase understanding from architecture to individual pull requests (PR's). By leveraging advanced visualisation and AI-powered insights, CodeSee empowers your development team to ship, refactor, and onboard to legacy or existing applications faster than ever before.

Benefits of

✅ Simplify Codebase Onboarding

Codebase onboarding doesn't just happen when hiring new developers. It occurs whenever you need to understand how your code works, deal with up/downstream dependencies, tackle outages, or navigate through reorganisations. CodeSee simplifies this process by providing instant mental models of your code, services, and dependencies. Say goodbye to hours of reading code and struggling to grasp complex architectures.

✅ Seamless Codebase Understanding

Whether due to a restructure or a reduction in force (RIF), teams often face the challenge of working with codebases without the developers who originally wrote them. CodeSee makes this transition smoother by allowing the remaining team members to understand and collaborate effectively on the codebase, even without the original authors' presence.

✅ Efficient Refactoring with Complete Codebase Visibility

Refactoring is a critical aspect of software development. However, it becomes exponentially harder without a clear understanding of how all the pieces fit together. CodeSee provides a comprehensive view of file dependencies in your codebase, making it easier to move quickly when breaking down modules, transforming monoliths into services, or modifying legacy code.

✅ Enhance Codebase Visibility and Reduce Reading Time

Did you know that developers spend approximately 60% of their time reading and understanding code? CodeSee aims to reduce this reading time by providing smart and intuitive ways to consume mental models of your code, services, and dependencies. Say goodbye to endless hours of reading and hello to rapid understanding.

✅ Deliver Secure Software Faster with Architectural Clarity

Security is a top priority for any development team. CodeSee helps you understand application complexities and uncover unknowns in minutes. With distributed tracing and visualisations, you can quickly identify potential security vulnerabilities and rectify them before they become critical issues.

✅ Auto-Generated Maps for Real-Time Insights

Gone are the days of manually updating code maps. CodeSee automatically generates and updates maps as your code changes, giving you real-time insights into your codebase's health and status. No additional work required, just seamless automation.

✅ AI-Powered Code Understanding with CodeSee AI

CodeSee takes code understanding to the next level with its AI-powered capabilities. Ask your codebase questions, and CodeSee AI will provide you with answers. Whether you want code summaries, proactive insights, or walkthroughs of your code, CodeSee AI has got you covered. This feature is still under development at the time of this writing.
