Our company SideCI provides code review function collaborating with GitHub, which uses static analytical tools such as RuboCop, Brakeman and PHP_CodeSniffer.
By Opening a PullRequest when the code review functionality is enabled, it immediately executes the code review.
By the way, how actually do you use such automated code review function?
We will explain you in below!
GitHub status right after SideCI Sign Up
The Pull Request will usually look like below after Signing up and configuring with you own account.
Isn’t it kinda boring that always same developer icon makes the comments?
We look these comments in the Pull Request every day, therefore I’d like to take care of this icon more!!!
Moreover, it is hard to understand if this is a bot or an engineer himself. since this is the same account/icon…
Installing an account for bot exclusive use
So, how about registering an additional account only for bot?
It’s better to have motivating icon since you see this every day.
Here we go! I have prepared a pretty icon for.
She is an original character of SideCI and does not have a name yet.
Temporary we call her “Ms. Indicator”, we recruit a nice name for her!(lol
Or you can simply call her by the name you like.
(Personally, since I’m a fan of Maki in Love live! (Japanese multimedia project group)I’m gonna call her Maki-chan.
Registering a GitHub account for bot
Here, we shall register an account via GitHub. You need an email address but nothing complicated.
Next is the icon setting.
You can upload the icon on “profile picture” by drag and drop from GitHub profile screen.
It depends on the material but you can also arrange and enlarge the face part .
This is because currently an user icon which gives comments is shown small in GitHub.
I have also prepared enlarged Ms.indicator.
Then we invite it to the organization.
Enter the bot account name by clicking on “invite someone” button in the organization.
An invitation email will be sent to the registered email address, you can confirm this.
Invitation is now done!
Ms. indicator has been added in the list on the right side of the screen.
We feel this pretty girl has joined in our team!
By the way, the fact of that this bot is belong to Organization is not visible by default
In short, you can bring any kind of character.
Configuration on SideCI and selecting the comment user
Now we select her in
comment user in SideCI.
In case her face does not appear in the comment user, please login SideCI by her account. She will show up.
Now this pre(・∀・)tty!! Ms.indicator will give you comments. Yay!!
How do you feel about this?
- Create a pretty account by GitHub for bot!
- The bots in the organization are not visible from the outside!
- Keep your motivation by having detections from your pretty bot!
