Improve Pull Request reviews with advanced Code Owners: auto-assign reviewers, enforce reviews and auto-merge

YouTube's thumbnail image for the video.

Adds relevant reviewers automatically

Adds Code Owners as reviewers to new pull requests, but still gives the author flexibility to adapt, e.g. for work-in-progress pull requests. Use Code Owners groups for easier maintenance.

Simple, versioned, rule based config in plain text

To assign Code Owners for a specific code area, put a file called CODEOWNERS in your repository with file patterns similar to .gitignore.

Prevent merges without reviews by Owners

Merge checks based on pull request approvals by Code Owners. Minimal required approvals defined for all Code Owners of a PR, or for each Code Owners group separately.

More details

Code reviews are valuable to share know-how and prevent bugs in successful projects. But finding the right reviewers can be a hassle without Code Owners, engineers who:

  • are experts in a specific code area
  • can give valuable feedback to other team members
  • are interested that the code quality stays great

This app allows to:

  • configure which groups or devs are Code Owners for each code area
  • automatically assign reviewers based on Code Owners
  • enforce approvals by Code Owners (Optional)

Simple, file-based & low-maintenance configuration:

  • CODEOWNERS file with pattern matching based on file names, similar to .gitignore
  • ready to be versioned eg. for auditing
