Microsoft’s Sonar, released last week under an open source license, could help developers build more effective and secure websites.
Sonar, a linting tool and site scanner, is the next evolution of the static scan tool, according to Microsoft.
The team that developed Microsoft’s Edge browser created Sonar as a better way for website maintainers to check performance and security issues. It searches out potential interoperability, performance, security and progressive Web app-related problems.
Finding website problems is half of what Sonar does. The other half is suggesting possible solutions.
