Slather is a code coverage tool for Xcode projects, seamlessly integrated with Appcircle. It generates detailed reports on the percentage of code covered by tests, enhancing the visibility of test coverage and contributing to higher code quality in iOS and macOS applications.

Key Benefits

Enhanced Code Quality: By providing detailed code coverage reports, Slather helps identify untested code areas, driving improvements in test coverage and overall code quality.

Easy Integration: Slather can be easily integrated into Appcircle's CI/CD pipelines, automating code coverage reporting with each build and test cycle, without the need for manual intervention.

Flexible Reporting: Offers various output formats, including HTML, JSON, and XML, making it easy to integrate coverage reports into code review processes or with external tools for further analysis.

Customizable Configuration: Supports customization of reporting criteria, such as excluding certain files or directories from coverage metrics, allowing teams to focus on relevant code areas.

Points to Consider

Configuration: Proper setup of the .slather.yml file is crucial for accurate reporting. Ensure it reflects the specific needs of your project, including paths and coverage criteria.

Test Suite Completeness: While Slather helps identify coverage gaps, the quality of the related tests is equally important. Ensure your tests are meaningful and cover critical use cases.
