Deque Announces Availability for the axe DevTools Linter Free Trial
Catch accessibility issues while you code & automatically block every inaccessible pull request with the axe DevTools Linter.
HERNDON, VA – April 26, 2023 – Deque Systems, the trusted leader in digital accessibility, today announced that a free trial of the axe DevTools Linter is now available via a simple, online self-service process. See for yourself how five minutes of effort can help you stop code changes that introduce accessibility defects. It’s the easiest way to stop accumulating technical debt and improve app usability for everyone, including people with disabilities.
“There is no better way to stop bad code from getting into your codebase than to flag errors while you type. You can fix them immediately. It’s just as easy to globally configure your GitHub or other code collaboration platform to scan and block every commit or pull request and insert comments on the offending lines of code,” explains Dylan Barrell, Chief Technology Officer, Deque Systems, Inc. “It’s easy to generate accessibility code quality data for inclusion in your code quality reporting system such as SonarQube. You don’t even need to involve the teams themselves and–boom–you have comprehensive metrics on the accessibility of all your code.”
Dylan continues: “Our command line application integrates with any CI/CD or code action system – Bamboo, GitLab, Travis CI, Circle CI, Azure DevOps – whatever you use – and with our REST API you can integrate it with systems that cannot run command line programs.”
Axe DevTools Linter keeps dev teams working at velocity so accessibility issues don’t cause unnecessary rework. With every issue it discovers, it points developers to an explanation of the issue as well as instructions for how to fix it.
Axe DevTools Linter is incredibly versatile in identifying accessibility issues in native HTML elements. It supports React, React Native, Vue, Angular, HTML and Markdown files with the same rules and the same features. So your teams don’t have to go hunting for some static analysis suite that has unknown quality rules.
But that’s not all. It also supports testing user interface (UI) component libraries – which means that you can now enforce the correct and accessible use of these component libraries.
Axe DevTools Linter now supports Material UI or MUI and we are adding more support all the time. Just let us know what you’d like to see.
We also support testing for your own, custom component libraries and design systems. The “Global Components” configuration feature in the linter allows you to define the mapping of custom components to relevant native HTML elements. This means you can enforce correct and accessible use of your component libraries too.
The Deque team can also help with this process by creating and maintaining the global component configuration for you as a service. Just contact us for more information.
