AI-powered next-gen code review

Best GitHub Alternative Pull Request Review Tool

A lot has changed since GitHub's pull request review tool was first introduced. See what you're missing.

Security-first, GDPR-compliant

Trusted by banks and healthcare

🔭 Read less code, better

Built by and used daily by a team of developers that are intimately familiar with how quickly minutes bleed into hours when reviewing code.

Attention to the code changes that really matter

Every diff tool since the beginning of diff tools has cataloged code changes as either "addition" or "deletion."

GitClear digs deeper. It recognizes the broader set of changes that real developers do:

End result? 30% less code to review. Instead of scrutinizing moved code as if it were newly added and deleted, code reviewers can train their limited time on the most significant changed lines.

Github. Attention consumed equally by moved and changed lines
GitClear. Moved lines de-emphasized, 30% less code to review

AI summaries and completions

Get the gist for what changed in a file before diving into it. Skip files that don't need your attention.

Accelerate commenting with history-aware completions that remove redundant explanations to developers who habitually struggle in a particular area.

Swap between viewing changes since last review (default), and all changes in the PR

Review the new ✨

Traditional PR review tools show the full changeset for each file regardless of what you've reviewed before. GitClear remembers what changes you have previously seen, and by default, only presents the changes to each file since you last saw it.

GitClear 2024 Pull Request Research

We tasked 50 developers with reviewing a sample PR across various git providers. Then we processed 12,000 pull requests to confirm an unusual result.

Lift beyond a better diff

Prevent tech debt before it begins
Set targets for how much work should be spent toward contributing tests and documentation for the changes in a PR. Authors can see how their PRs stack up to the team's goals, the team's past performance, and the performance of similar PRs in the industry.
Proven to reduce review time
In empirical studies where developers reviewed the same pull requests on GitHub and GitClear, the average developer spent 29% less time reviewing code, without a reduction in identified problems.
Never wonder who's next
Like Critique, GitClear highlights the next action that needs to happen to get a pull request across the finish line. Also like Critique, GitClear categorizes the size of the PR to help reviewers pick the right PR for their circumstances.
Pinpoint change origins
When a pull request spans more than a few commits, it can be hard to tell where a change originated. GitClear's line explanations show the commit that introduced a line, and the commit that last touched it.
Problem detection
The life of a pull request doesn't end upon merge. GitClear follows the meaningful changes that are made to a pull request in the immediate aftermath of its merge. Teams that follow this metric can reduce the prevalence of follow-on bugs and regressions.
Suggested comments
Coming soon: When you click to leave a comment, GitClear will suggest comment content based on the content of the line and the history between the reviewer and the author. This feature reduces time spent typing, and helps authors recognize patterns in feedback.
