Autofix: The future of code reviews is here - DeepSource

DeepSource has been able to find issues in your code. With Autofix, DeepSource will now be able to automatically fix some of these issues for you as well.

It is 2020.

Humans have been writing code for almost half a century now, and making computers do stuff. We’ve automated most parts of the process of building software as well — continuous testing and integration, delivery, rollbacks, performance monitoring, live security monitoring, et al. Somehow, however, the act of writing code itself — and reviewing it for objective errors — is still 100% manual.

At DeepSource, we believe it doesn’t have to be like this. We believe computers should be able to find and fix bugs automatically. We’ve been working on this for quite some time, and we can barely contain our excitement now to show you what we’ve built.

Introducing, Autofix.

DeepSource has been able to find issues in your code so far — bug risks, anti-patterns, performance issues, and potential security vulnerabilities. Starting today, DeepSource will now be able to automatically fix some of these issues for you. We’re calling it, Autofix.

You can now see an “Autofix” button on some issues on a repository’s issues dashboard.

In one click, you would be able to choose and confirm which files to run Autofix on — these are files in which at least one occurrence of an issue has been found. Autofix will generate fixes, and show you the changes in a diff format, so you can pick and choose which fixes you want to apply.

Another click, and DeepSource will create a pull-request on your VCS provider (like GitHub or GitLab), which can then be merged.

At the time of writing this, Autofix supports 14 issues in Python, and 21 in Go. In the coming few weeks, more issues will be added for Python and Go. In the next couple of months, we have a target of bringing at least 30% of all issues that DeepSource detects to Autofix.

What’s next?

Autofix takes us one step further in our journey towards building a great developer experience for automated code reviews. We believe the future of software development will include computers helping developers write code better and faster by automating everything in the process that can be automated.

Talking a page out of Jeff Bezos’s playbook, it’s day one for us. And we invite you to be a part of our journey as we attempt to fulfill our vision.

Welcome to the future.
