I’ve been trying to make Gitlab CI’s Code Quality with Code Climate to work and it happened to work… once, after days of struggle. I mean, the only thing I got displayed was a message saying “No changes in code quality” in my merge request panel, I was glad about it as it was finally working. But since that day, I didn’t manage to get anything else than Code Climate artifacts, nothing more in the merge request panel.
Anyway, I was wondering: are reports displayed only in merge request panel? Because I thought that being able to use those reports on each push to a given branch would be more relevant (at least in my case). Code quality is improved and deteriorated by people who add code, why should they wait for the merge request to be created to fix their issues?
Last question: when running Code Climate job, it appears to take about six minutes, which is quite long. Any idea how to improve it?
Thanks for reading!
