Getting visual feedback

Sonar offers some very interesting and modern visual components to help the developer or manager understand the progress and evolution of the code base over time:

  • Motion Chart plugin
  • Timeline plugin

You can find the plugins in the Update Center under the Reporting/Visualization section. Install them and do not forget do restart the Sonar server after the installation. Finally, run a new analysis of a project and launch your browser.
