Wondering what differentiates DeepSource from Snyk?
These are the top 4 things.
Snyk runs “snapshot” analysis on the entire codebase either daily or weekly — not continuously on new commits.
DeepSource analyzes every commit on every pull-request, automatically.
Snyk 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.
Snyk Code 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.
Snyk Code 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.
