European startups are offering developers new ways to test code and apps

Mikael Ricknäs | Nov. 6, 2014
Codacy, TestCloud and Usetrace are taking different approaches to code and app testing, but all three aim to make it easier for developers to get high-quality apps out the door.

"Currently, its Web only and the next area for us is mobile Web browsers and after that we'll probably add native mobile apps," Vuori said.

Usetrace's unlimited Gold plan costs $490 per month.

Testing features can only get you so far. With British company Codacy's service, developers get help finding errors in the code they write. The company on Tuesday announced a beta implementation of the ability for users to write customized tests in Javascript.

"This is going to be very exciting. It lets companies check for specific mistakes that are made over and over," said Paul Bleicher, head of product at Codacy.

What Codacy does is break down the code quality on demand into different categories, including complexity, code style and performance. The service also lets users set goals related to each category and managers can see how each developer is performing.

The platform can analyze code written in CSS, Javascript, PHP, Python and Scala. Codacy used the latter when the company built its platform. Java will be the next language added and the company is also looking at adding Apple's new programming language Swift.

The Company version of Codacy's service costs $150 per month for up to 25 users. For that users also get a dedicated server and an unlimited number of repositories.
