Word is that the a version of the code review tool that Google uses internally (called Mondrian) on the Google App Engine – called Code Review. I remember first seeing the Google tech talk on Mondrian and thinking that was pretty cool – then later hearing about ReviewBoard on the Django users mailing list.
I’ve since starting using ReviewBoard (and even contributed a few bits back) and have been very pleased with it. I’m curious to dig into what Code Review offers in comparison, but I already know that I’ll continue using ReviewBoard. For one thing, my office wouldn’t take kindly to code and code reviews happening beyond the constrains of the fire wall. But I am seriously jazzed about Code Review in the hopes that it’s very easy to set up. If it’s an easy, low/no-cost solution for open source code… well, that’d be pretty damn cool. ReviewBoard, for all it’s goodness, can take some time and effort to completely install.
UPDATE: Since I wrote about this, I found the Google project that Guido has used to make (and now share) CodeReview – the project is rietveld. Guido mentions that it’s meant to showcase how to do a webapp using Django templating and views with the Google Application Engine.
