Software Category: Code refactoring platform
About the Company: Founded in 2018, Sourcery is a brand new tool that uses AI to automatically refactor Python code, making it dramatically more readable and maintainable. Sourcery’s goal is clear: to put a sizeable dent in the 4.9 billion hours a year that developers waste dealing with. Employing a bit of 21st-century magic, i.e. an AI-based approach, Sourcery automatically reviews and refactors this junky code in real-time, showing developers exactly how less-than-great code can be improved. Sourcery’s magic bag of tools currently integrates directly into Visual Studio Code, PyCharm, Sublime, Vim, Emacs, and GitHub, and/or into a company’s CI/CD pipeline. With today’s modus operandi relying on manual code review or tools that flag potential issues with the code, there’s still a human input needed in getting things ship-shape.
