Clone smellsΒΆ

This unique diagram shows the suspicious code duplication evolution patterns in the current branch. The four major types of clone smells are:

  • Disappearing clone instances
  • Appearing clone instances
  • Disappearing clone classes
  • Appearing clone classes

A slide above the diagram helps you narrow the time period to show. Clone class and clone instance appearances or disappearances are represented by colored (green-yellow-red) bars. The bars are colored based on the number of clone classes or instances, and the color range is scaled to the maximum number per lines in the clone.

You can click on each bar to see its details on instance or class level.
