Wondering what differentiates DeepSource from ShiftLeft?
These are the top 5 things.
The only way to run ShiftLeft on your code is running their CLI in your own CI pipeline. You'd be paying extra for all those build minutes in addition to what ShiftLeft costs.
DeepSource runs analysis in its own runtime, automatically configured with your GitHub, GitLab, or Bitbucket account. You don't have to pay for additional build minutes on your CI.
ShiftLeft supports fewer programming languages and only detects limited security issues.
DeepSource supports 16+ programming languages and Infrastructure-as-code, and detects 3,500+ code quality and security issues.
ShiftLeft users often complain that the results are very noisy and contain a very high number of false positives. There's also no way to report issues as false positives.
DeepSource guarantees less than 5% false positives in the issues raised. If you spot a false positive, you can suppress it and report it to DeepSource support.
ShiftLeft treats static analysis more as a reporting tool than a workflow tool for developers. The user experience is designed for users to find issues periodically, not proactively.
DeepSource is fast, pleasant, and designed carefully — keeping developers in mind. The web interface is clean, snappy, and optimized for everyday developer workflows.
