Technical debt is part of the development process. Manage it with this extension.
For you, the individual contributor
Each function is analysed and rated using code quality metrics.
💃 This analysis runs locally and your code doesn't leave your machine (read more here) 🕺
This gives you a live view of code quality so you can be mindful of the debt you take on.
For your team, looking to manage tech debt
The metrics are only here to guide you.
Create Tech Debt Issues to capture the debt in your codebase and prioritise it together with simple impact / effort votes.
You'll quickly form a crowdsourced, prioritised backlog of improvements and be in a position to crack down on technical debt together.

We're planning to open source the extension code eventually, but for now it's released as proprietary software with an end-user license agreement.
It looks a bit scary, but basically it says "this is free beta software, use it at your own risk". It points out that we collect some telemetry data to improve the extension, and that feedback you give us is our intellectual property.
Note that your code never leaves your machine. You can find out more about how we handle data here.
