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.
The Sonar Timeline plugin uses Google's Annotated Time Line component. It is the same component that Google uses to render trends, stock analysis, and website analytics. You can find more information about the component at Google Code (http://code.google.com/intl/el-GR/apis/chart/interactive/docs/gallery/annotatedtimeline.html ...
