Announcing Caliper

If you’re anything like us, you recognize the usefulness of code quality metrics. But configuring metrics tools and linking them to your Continuous Integration system is a chore you may not have found time for. Here at Devver we’re all about taking the pain out of common development chores. Which is why we’re pleased to announce a new Devver service: Caliper.

Caliper is the easy way to get code metrics – like cyclomatic complexity and code duplication – about your project. Just go to http://devver.net/caliper. Enter the public Git repository URL of a Ruby project. In a few moments, we’ll give you a full set of metrics, generated by the awesome metric_fu gem.

Try it out right here:

If your project is hosted on Github, we can even re-generate metrics automatically every time someone makes a commit. Just add the URL

http://api.devver.net/github

to your project’s Post-Receive Hooks.

Caliper is currently an Alpha product. We will be be rapidly adding features and refinements over the next few weeks. If you have a problem, a question, or a feature request, please let us know!
