Qodana GitHub Action and Application

official project


Tools created by JetBrains are capable of detecting dozens of error-types and inconsistencies in your repository. Their flexible mechanisms of resolving problems allow you to easier improve the code structure, conform your code to numerous guidelines and standards, detect performance issues, and so on.

And now with the Qodana App and Actions available in GitHub, all these features are just around the corner!

The Qodana GitHub App supports only public repositories. For private repositories use the Qodana GitHub Action.

Once you install the app to your repository, it starts monitoring all its pull requests.

If there is a problem in your pull request, Qodana App will add a comment to each problematic line. To get a deep summary, you can open the Qodana analytics results' page.
