What is plz.review?
Better coding workflows for teams.
At its core, plz.review is an interface to your team’s Git code changes and the reviews associated with those code changes.
It serves as a layer on top of your GitHub repo that is focused on the task of creating reviewable code changes, and letting you review your team’s code changes, in a more pleasant and productive way.
At Bit Complete we work on a lot of projects hosted on GitHub. While GitHub's PR model is simple to use, it creates a workflow where the typical output is a large pull request. These PRs often address many dimensions of a feature or fix all at once, and are very unwieldy to review.
We longed for power tools like the internal code review apps at Google (Critique/Gerrit) and Facebook (Phabricator). We wanted our tools to encourage meaningful commits as checkpoints for feedback. We wanted a workflow encouraging more incremental output that's easier on reviewers.
This wonderful blog post by Jackson Gabbard goes into a lot of the specifics of how we prefer to work, and why we felt a tool that bridges this workflow with GitHub was needed.
We’ve now used plz on many of our own projects. We think it’s a big step forward for developer productivity and want to share it with the world!
