Snowflower Metrics is a source code metrics measurement tool. By introducing this tool, refactoring points can be found quickly and effectively without relying on the experience of software developers. This application strongly supports the improvement of source code quality.
|Refactoring means preserving the software’s external behavior It is to improve the internal structure of the software. Refactoring makes your code more readable and easier to test.|
Refactoring is an important task, Finding refactoring points in a huge amount of source code by yourself is not easy. By introducing this tool, developers will be freed from reading a huge amount of source code, Metrics make it possible to determine the order of priority and proceed with refactoring in a planned manner.
Snowflower Code Merics is specifically based on fieldwork research in software engineering. We carefully select and adopt metrics that have evidence of effectiveness. This app supports the following metrics:
CC (Cyclomatic Complexity)
WMC (Weighted Methods per Class)
SLOC (Source Lines of Code)
PLOC (Physical Lines of Code)
|Metrics||Purpose of use|
Estimating unit test scale (C2: condition coverage)
Calculating Bug Density
Significance of introducing software metrics
Software metrics can identify potential problems during source code development and testing. By identifying and fixing problems early, you can improve the reliability and maintainability of your software. You can decide where to focus your testing efforts during development.
And if you’re reviewing open source or third-party software, you can quickly inspect the quality of their code. It can also be used to ensure that software quality standards are met.
Features of Snowflower Metrics
Provides a unified user interface for programming language independent metrics. Therefore, there is no need to learn how to use different analysis tools for each programming language.
Works standalone without a server. It allows developers to measure metrics and iterate on refactoring work at maximum speed.
Rich programming language support
Snowflower Metrics are Measure software metrics by parsing programming languages. It supports many programming languages, including relatively new and popular languages.
Below is a list of programming languages that support complexity metrics.
