Refactoring Code

For enhancing the quality of the code base, making it more maintainable and readable, developers may need to overhaul certain segments of the project code. Code refactoring may be necessitated by various factors:

  • Difficulty in maintaining the code.
  • Code being unclear, especially for newcomers to the project.
  • Overly extensive types and methods that should be divided.
  • Methods that have substantial cyclomatic complexity and should be segmented.
  • Poorly structured code with either a lack of cohesion or excessive coupling.

Scanyp offers a suite of features to aid developers during the refactoring process. Here's a step-by-step guide:

Procedure to refactore code

Step 1: Pinpoint the code in Need of Refactoring

Post-analysis, Scanyp reveals both implementation and design flaws. These are categorized on the team skills page.

Developers can select a particular subcategory to view the related issues. For instance, they might want to inspect complex methods.

Step 2: Concentrate on the Code for Refactoring

Once a developer decides on the code segment for refactoring, let's say they choose the NFController.StartAsync from the earlier results, they can select the class and move it to a focused work set.

Post-refactoring, tracking the progress of code quality becomes seamless on the 'My View' page.

Step 3: Initiate a Task for Refactoring

For organized refactoring and monitoring the progress made towards this end, a specific code element can be chosen, followed by clicking on the "Add to my tasks" option.

This will enable the creation of a "Code Review" task.

Multiple developers can then team up to execute the refactoring process.
