Codekvast Alpha

Codekvast detects Truly Dead Code in your app, code that no real user is using. Starting at ~$0/hour.

Codekvast Detects Truly Dead Code

Methods that have not been invoked in production for a significant period of time can be considered Truly Dead Code.

Truly Dead Code brings no value to your customers, and should probably be removed.

Maintain Development Speed

By eliminating truly dead code you can maintain your development speed over time.

Less code means less build time, less testing time, less deployment time, less training time.

Reduce Technical Debt

Most code contains technical debt. Code that is accidentally complex, uses dated libraries and frameworks, lacks test coverage and so on.

The easiest way to reduce technical debt is to simply remove unused code.

The problem is to know what is unused code. This is where Codekvast can help.

Codekvast detects Truly Dead Code, and helps you make informed decisions about what code that safely can be deleted.

Speed Up Onboarding

A bloated code base that contains dead features - features that no real user uses - will make team onboarding more expensive.

By continously removing dead code you make developer onboarding faster and cheaper.

Reduce Risk for Security Exploits

A smaller code base makes a smaller attack vector for hackers.

By continuously removing dead features you keep the attack vector minimal.
