Abstract

Code review is a common practice in the software industry, in contexts spanning from open to close source, and from free to proprietary software. Modern code reviews are essentially conducted using cloud-based dedicated tools. Existing review tools focus in textual code. In contrast, support of low-code software languages, namely Visual Programming Languages (VPLs), is not readily available. This presents a challenge for the effectiveness of the review process with a VPL. This showpiece will present VPLreviewer, a code review tool for VPLs. VPLreviewer provides a wide range of mechanisms previously not available to a VPL. It is expected to improve of communication among the stakeholders who have to review artifacts constructed with VPLs, with mechanisms that are easy to learn, use and understand.
