About Sourcetrail

Software developers spend up to 70 percent of their time figuring out how existing source code works, but common code editing tools offer little help for this task. Sourcetrail helps software engineers explore and navigate unknown source code quickly and thoroughly by combining an interactive graph visualization, a concise code view and a powerful search algorithm, all built into an easy-to-use cross-platform developer tool.

A terrific tool that "just works" to provide new insights even on complex templated C++ code.

Pros: SourceTrail provides a fast, interactive, visual representation for exploring complex relationships in C++ code whilst maintaining links directly back to source code. It's visual approach complements IDEs such as Visual Studio. I find it invaluable for digging into unfamiliar code and for looking beyond the diffs in code reviews. The frequent releases are bringing great improvements and new features.

Cons: The tool does require a manual step to trigger updates of the database after source changes, but this is worthwhile given the preponderance of time spent reading rather than writing code.

Excellent to build understanding of software projects large or small

Pros: I like being able to navigate the project seeing the source code in the code pane and then being able to navigate my IDE/Editor to the same line and file that I am viewing in the code pane.

Cons: The biggest issues I have found were related to Java programming language dependency but I overcame that and haven't had other issues.

Overall: I was able to find code affecting a feature I was working on across multiple projects and project files. Saved me lots of time to understand the scope of the problem.
