  • Redesigned INotify support


The aim of CodeReview is to provide tools for code review tasks on local Git repositories. As opposite to software like Gerrit for example, CodeReview is not designed to perform code review at a team level, but to check the stage before a commit and show the difference between two versions. In particular, CodeReview fills the gap with IDEs that don’t provide efficiently these features.

How to use CodeReview ?

The main features of CodeReview are:

  • display and browse the log and paches of a Git repository
