Landscape needs your help!

Tidying up code one commit at a time:
code quality and static analysis for open source.

Planned Features

As well as general improvements to accuracy, reliability and less bugs in general, there are a lot of new features planned (hoped for) for some time. The following list is likely to be the first ones tackled:

  • Better trend graphs: there's a lot of historical data in Landscape that is not currently visible
  • Other git providers: right now GitHub is the only integration but other hosts and arbitrary git repos can be added
  • Heatmaps: figure out which files have the most churn and where the hotspots are for your code
  • Notifications via Slack or IRC or other mechanisms for finding out the results of a code push

And plenty more ideas after that but let's start there!


What is the money for?
Partly, to enable full time work on Landscape, which is needed to keep up with the current amount of projects and repositories being checked. Secondly, keeping the lights on in the server room!
Why donations? There's a paid version isn't there?
I have never been able to work full time on Landscape except by using my own money to do so, and that is swiftly running out. While there is a private version already, one of the many improvements to be made is working on actually converting trial users into paying customers.
What are the planned features?
The planned list of first new features can be found just above this FAQ, though there will also be lots of bugfixing and working through the backlog on the issue tracker.
When will this start happening?
Right now this funding campaign has just started so the timeline really depends on how much support there is and how quickly news spreads. In the mean time, things will continue as normal while trying to get the word out. You can help by sharing this page as much as possible.
