Help Your Developers Choose the Right Component the First Time
What Is It All About?
WhiteSource’s Web Advisor allows your developers to see a snapshot of a component’s details before they download it to their repository. The Chrome extension quickly identifies open source component package reference on web pages such as Stack Overflow, Maven Central, and RubyGems.
With a simple click on the icon in the page, developers can view important details to help them decide whether or not to add a new component. Details include known vulnerabilities, quality scores, and if the component is currently in use within your organization.
Selecting the right component the first time can make your team’s development more effective, saving you valuable time and money by preventing costly tear and replace ops later down the line when nearing release deadlines.
Once you click on the WhiteSource WebAdvisor extension it scans the page and detects all package references, and provides the following information on each open source component.
WhiteSource Web Advisor is being offered now for free to WhiteSource customers, empowering your development to choose better components the first time. If you are not already a WhiteSource customer, this is your opportunity to take advantage of our wide range of benefits.
