Code Collaboration on the Fly
Development teams are under increasing pressure to shorten the distance from an idea to usable software. To do so, they need to collaborate better, faster and without sacrificing quality. They need a tool that accommodates development teams that are distributed around the globe. And they need it to be tightly integrated with a versioning platform that's built from the ground up to support Continuous Delivery practices.
Swarm is a flexible code collaboration platform built on top of the Perforce versioning engine. It enables developers to work together better and faster than ever, improving both the quality of their software and the speed of its delivery. Swarm's social coding features let you share creative ideas immediately, collaborate on the fly, and get early feedback from continuous integration and deployment.
Swarm is a straightforward web application that can be accessed anywhere. It allows developers to personalize their code reviews—such as side-by-side or vertical comparisons—and comment right inside the code. Activity streams, project pages, notifications and a rich repository browser enable even distributed teams to make better use of Agile methodologies. Its flexible workflows, hooks for continuous integration and automatic deployment help them optimize their software production lines.
Swarm features an elegant, minimalist interface that doesn't get in your way. It leverages social media features like @mentions and short, readable links. Forgot part of the path? No problem—Swarm automatically directs you to where you want to go.
Swarm is the key to rapid multi-site collaboration. It lets programmers chime in on each other’s code immediately, get the feedback they need when they need it and even review code side-by-side. We've been hoping for a tool like this for a long time.”
