Kloudi's VSCode Extension
Kloudi helps users take control of their tools by helping them super charge their day to day workflows. We are able to do this by aggregating all the tools that a developer use under one roof. This in turn brings cross-functionality across tools, by making data from tools contextual & actionable.
The VSCode extension ensures complete functionality of the platform is extended to the users in their IDE, bringing a zero navigation world to its users.
What you one expect from v1.0 🎉!
Getting Started 🏁
Getting started with Kloudi is very simple.
Signup and fill in the EAP on-boarding form. The EAP on-boarding form helps us understand your current tools that you use, workflows that you have and data flow points between tools. Post form filling, we analyse the data you have provided to get you started.
The VSCode extension usage can be triggered by Command+K in Mac systems or Ctrl+K in Linux or Windows systems. On the web app pressing either of the shortcut will take you the search bar.
Kloudi is a horizontal platform built as a layer that can interact and make dev tools cross-functional and related workflows optimal. The interface is fairly simple to use and is simple natural laconversationally driven. The integration pipeline for all tools can be set up easily and unlocking of integrations currently unavailable can be done using the Kloudi request feature. The VSCode plugin is designed to be similarly functional as Kloudi in the webapp state. Give below is a brief of how Kloudi's features can lead to optimisation, ease and quick actions on data.
Connect your tools
User can connect the tools they use for their day to day activities. Currently, we are supporting more tools around bug resolution, bug monitoring, bug management and related workflows. Currently there are two ways through which you can connect a tool:
Depending on which tool you want to integrate with and what kind of third party API access they provide Kloudi will take you through each step of connecting with the tool so that you don't need to write any code.
Currently Kloudi supports the following tools out of the box:
NLP Based Search - Like texting
The Kloudi interface is search driven for any data to be viewed or action to be taken. The search can be initiated for anything and everything. For instance:
Kloudi is learning
Kloudi is currently trained to work on queries addressed as natural language based triggers in the the universe of the tools that it operates in. Every action of a single tool is automatically exposed to the user as a natural language based query post integration. While any new tool not pre-existing in the list of available integrations in Kloudi's current form can be requested for through a request trigger sent to us. Functionality fromt, training of Kloudi and exposure of requested integrations and related actions can be provided within 4hrs of acceptance of Request an Integration.
In terms of Kloudi's ability to understand natural language intents, currently it not only understands simple reciprocation of data like
Not only cross tool functionality, we are training Kloudi to build insights on the this data from tools. Kloudi basis triggers and data from tools can identify exact issue and similar or dummy issues triggered by the parent issue that needs to be fixed. imilar issues can be viewed upon performing a search query.
Customize your queries and actions
Actions are derivative results of the mental models that are now embedded and performed by Kloudi's data aggregation and viewing engine. Since the workflow is issue management the actions related to the workflow that each persona would like to perform post viewing causal error can be as follows.
The actions above are capabilities that are incorporated in Kloudi and can be viewed as either suggestions post data aggregation or can be initiated via the search feature.
Bugs Coverage in Kloudi
Currently the following enriched data snippet for a bug can be viewed by user to aid decision making and action.
Request an Integration
Since the current workflow focus of Kloudi encompasses tools that are used for issue management there might be integrations of tools unavailable for immediate extension. In case you are using a tool that is not currently available for you to extension you can request us for having it enabled with all related actions exposed. Click here to request an integration
Report an Issue or Give Feedback
If Kloudi has mis-identified your query intent or if certain minor features seem missing and you need them added, we can be notified about that too. You may also rate the accuracy of the data and actions suggested by Kloudi and we will ensure that the Kloudi's algorithm's are trained better to understand your workflow and intents.
Kloudi is a platform that will grow and get better with your usage and we have ensured that feature requests or feedbacks are received from within the product's design. We are young and eager to learn from our users.
What is Kloudi best at?
Currently Kloudi is focussed to optimise the issue resolution workflow. Which means the following persona's can best benefit from using Kloudi.
We are aiming to reduce debugging time through optimising debugging and converting mental models performed on tool data into actual actionable data
Best Use Case
We recommend Kloudi to be used to perform any debugging related action or queries or to connect data pointers across tools to give you actionable data. The VSCode extension is best suited for developers and QA's, while engineering managers may choose to use the webapp due to minimal IDE usage suiting their workflow interations.
Ideally suited for teams using 4 or more tools from the following categories for debugging data.
Tools available for immediate extension can be integrated post access being granted for sign-in.
Ideally Kloudi is aimed at performing real time debugging. Kloudi ensures assistance and accuracy in reporting of the root cause issue to be fixed, historic data and logs of occurrence of issues and subsequent triggers and counter measures which are translated into one click actions that can be taken to fix the occurred issue.
What to expect in future releases
We want to expand Kloudi's availability in the IDE for a developers entire universe of devtools and workflows. While we are taking a workflow by workflow approach we encourage you sharing things you want to see Kloudi do.
In the near future these are the few features within the current workflow you can expect to see in subsequent releases.
