Book Description

How would you feel if the world's craftiest programmer went through every line of code that you wrote before it appeared on the user's screen? Everyone is not lucky enough to have a person to go through their code! Reviewboard is a powerful web-based code review tool that offers developers an easy way to handle code reviews. It scales well from small projects to large companies and offers a variety of tools to take much of the stress and time out of the code review process.

Based on the philosophy that "Merely using a tool is one thing, using it right is another", Getting Started with Review Board will guide you on a journey to mastering Reviewboard by teaching you how to publish a code review request through the Reviewboard web UI or command line. It will help you become an ace Reviewboard administrator as you'll learn how to manage users, review groups, default reviewers, repositories, and much more.

This practical, example-oriented book covers the code review workflow in detail. It also talks about the various features in Reviewboard which make your life a lot easier as a code author, reviewer, and administrator.

You will start the journey by looking at the different ways of sharing the code changes (diff) with your team which will also cover integration with a repository. Then, you will look at how a code review can be performed and how you can provide your input on the code changes or on the whole diff. You will also look at the user dashboard, which provides an overview of the review requests and user/group activities which the user is a part of. Finally the administration of Reviewboard application and admin dashboard will be explored. You will end the book by learning advanced tips and tricks to get the best out of Reviewboard.

  • Install and set up Reviewboard
