I love tools – as a user and as a deverloper, especially the tools that concern software quality. On this page, I lists the tools that either I developed from scratch or made a major contribution.
1. DesigniteClick here to expand/collapse
- Detects 7 architecture smells
- Detects 19 design smells
- Detects 11 implementation smells
- Computes various OO code metrics
- Provides smell trend analysis of Git repositories
- Many visualization aids including (smell) treemap, and (smell) sunburst
- Detects code duplication
- Allows customization of analysis
Visit the tool’s official website for more details. Software engineering researchers may request a free fully-functional Academic license of this commercial tool.
Rohit Tiwari also contributed to this tool (specifically, in code clone detector and SonarQube plug-in components).

This tool is developed when I was in Siemens (Corporate Research, Bangalore). My colleague at Siemens Elroy DSilva and a few interns, Kishan Kesavan and Amit Patil, also contributed to this tool.

3. PuppeteerClick here to expand/collapse
It is an open-source tool; you may access the code via GitHub repo page. My colleague at AUEB Marios Fragkoulis also contributed to this tool.
You may find more details about the catalog of configuration smells here.

4. SlideQClick here to expand/collapse
It is an open-source tool; you may access the code via Github repo page. Rohit Tiwari made a major contribution to this tool.
If you are wondering about presentation smells, here is my attempt to document them in the form of a catalog.
I am working on two more tools at present. I will add them here when they are ready to be used.
