Find missing tests
❌ Coverage percentage targets let untested code slip through code review. Post-factum test additions cost you more and miss the context.
✅ Undercover integrates with your CI and local workflow to warn on all methods, classes, blocks and branches that were changed without test coverage. Catch them early, prevent bugs and ship with confidence.

How it works
Stop focusing on getting to 100% test coverage.
Detect when changed code is untested before it's deployed.
Actionable review comments
Each class, method or block that's been changed without tests receives a check annotation including detailed information about what's missing and where: line coverage or branch coverage, plus respective line numbers and number of hits.
Worried about too many comments? You won't receive more than one comment per method, because Undercover understands code structure and only works with the current diff.
No untested changes in the diff? Merge away. Otherwise, it's up to you to configure whether a passing check is required to merge. If you decide to make it required, selected annotations can still be muted with SimpleCov's
:nocov: comment syntax to go green and fix coverage later.
Test coverage summary
Lists file names, class/method names and coverage information for a commit or pull request. Methods that cause the check to fail are flagged with a warning emoji (⚠️) - one or more line or branch appears in the PR diff and has to be fixed. All others provide a refactoring opportunity for you to improve the test coverage if it's low somewhere outside of the diff.

The purpose of branch coverage is to check whether every conditional branch in a given line of code has been tested and Ruby has this feature since

Today, I’m launching UndercoverCI— a CI robot who protects your Ruby codebase from untested code changes. Take a moment to learn why you should add it to your team’s code review workflow. Adding UndercoverCI to your code review workflow will prevent untested code changes from slipping into production without anyone noticing.
So what is the value of coverage analysis again? Well it helps you find which bits of your code aren't being tested. It's worth running coverage tools every so often and looking at these bits of untested code. Do they worry you that they aren't being tested?
