The CodeStream extension for Visual Studio is now available in the Visual Studio Marketplace!
CodeStream makes it easy for developers to discuss, review and understand code, with discussions saved as codemarks that are permanently connected to the source code. With the new Visual Studio extension, CodeStream now offers complete coverage for Microsoft development shops. Every developer on the team, whether they’re using Visual Studio or VS Code, can contribute to discussions and leverage the entire knowledge base of codemarks.
CodeStream now integrates with Jira, Trello, GitHub, Asana, Bitbucket, and GitLab, making it incredibly easy to create an issue tied to a specific block of code, and have that issue appear in your existing issue-tracking service.
Whether it’s an informal review of someone else’s code, or just tracking your own FIXMEs, CodeStream makes it easy to formalize these tasks. Just select the block of code, type a comment, and pick an assignee. Now, with the slew of new integrations, creating an issue on CodeStream can also automatically create an issue in Jira, Trello and other services.
The latest version of CodeStream brings some major new additions!
Codemarks – You can now annotate your codebase with an array of “codemarks”, including comments, issues, code traps, and bookmarks.
Easier discussion of code – Now there are even fewer steps involved in creating a conversation about code.
Exploring your knowledge base – In addition to displaying codemarks as annotations to your source files, there are also new interfaces for searching and browsing codemarks.
The latest update to CodeStream for VS Code (v0.14.0) allows you to connect your Slack workspace to a CodeStream team. Instead of creating a new, separate set of channels and DMs on CodeStream, you’ll have access all of your existing Slack channels and DMs. Start chatting with your teammates right away, even before you’ve invited them to CodeStream, because they’ll be receiving your messages on Slack… just as if you had posted them from Slack yourself!
We’re excited to announce that CodeStream V0.11.0 for VS Code is now available. This beta release includes all of our latest functionality including:
We’ve received much feedback that having a separate chat stream for each source file didn’t mirror the way discussions were happening in the real world, where they often span source files. A discussion that starts with problematic code in one source file might end with relevant code being shared from another.
Two exciting updates from CodeStream, both of which will translate into fewer emails in your inbox. First up is our Slack integration. Once setup, all of your team’s messages on CodeStream will flow through to the channel of your choice on Slack. You can even reply to those messages right from Slack, and the replies will get posted to CodeStream. Definitely a good option for teams that have developers not currently using Atom.
