Developed by Ubisoft La Forge, Ubisoft utilizes Clever-Commit internally, and now with this partnership, Firefox will try to detect errors in their code. The code assistant comprises data from the bug tracking system and the code-base. Nearly 8,000 edits are made in every Firefox release by several developers. By utilizing Ubisoft’s assistant to save bugs on them will have a large effect in Firefox development.

As a range of developers commits code to the Firefox codebase, Clever-Commit will assess the changes in code. It then looks at the earlier committed code to depict comparisons and detect buggy code. The developer is notified if Clever-Commit considers that a code commit is not accurate. That means the bug could be fixed before a commit. It can even recommend solutions to the bugs it detects. While Firefox utilizes C++, JavaScript, and Rust, Mozilla plans to deploy Clever-Commit for all of them to bring faster development. Ubisoft’s Clever-Commit is not open-source and its look likes to be no abrupt plans to make it freely available. However this ability to make inferences from large code bases is not exclusive to Clever-Commit. In a statement, Head of French division at Mozilla, Sylvestre Ledru noted that the Firefox engineering team will start deploying Clever-Commit in its code-writing, testing and release process. The team will initially utilize the tool during the code review phase, and if conclusive, at other stages of the code-writing process, especially during automation.

Further, Ledru said that they expect to save hundreds of hours of bug riskiness analysis and detection. In due course, the addition of Clever-Commit into the full Firefox developer workflow could support to seize up to 3 to 4 out of 5 bugs before they are introduced into the code. Last year, Clever-Commit was originally demonstrated by Ubisoft as Commit Assistant.
