Sourcegraph Universal Code Search makes code reviews fast and thorough to catch more bugs before they're deployed to production.
A mistake that slips past code review becomes ~10x harder to fix.
A slow code review process hurts productivity (just like slow compilation or slow tests).
An ineffective code review process hinders knowledge transfer and new employee onboarding.
The Sourcegraph integration [with GitLab] also adds inline code intelligence when you review code in merge requests which helps you speed up the review cycle and catch more bugs.
See a call to a function you don't recognize? With Sourcegraph, you can see its documentation and type signature by hovering over it—and go to its definition in a single click. Even if your IDE supports this, being able to do it in your web browser instantly without losing context saves tons of time—and helps you do more thorough reviews. Works for 32 programming languages.
What might break when this change is merged? Who else is relying on the API that will be changed? As a reviewer, you need to understand the impact of a change to review it correctly. With Sourcegraph in 32 programming languages, you can find callers and references in all of your repositories. Never have an "oops" again.
When changing code that's performance-sensitive or causing errors, it helps to see live information from runtime to ensure the fix is correct. When using supported services to collect this information, Sourcegraph makes it easy to see this extra context when reviewing.
