AWS CodeCommit now supports emoji reactions to comments on pull requests and commits. With this launch, a developer can quickly react to a comment by clicking on the emoji icon in the comment to see a list of supported emojis. They can then choose an emoji from the list that represents their feedback about the comment. CodeCommit records the selected emoji as a reaction to that comment. The list of supported emojis includes popular reactions such as thumbs-up and thumbs-down, smiley face, heart, and ship-it.
Developers use comments to give feedback on code changes to their team members. A reaction to comments not only helps developers submit quick feedback, but also gives the comment author a concise visual summary of team’s reactions. For example, a developer can very easily see how many fellow developers agree with their comment by reacting to it with a thumbs-up.
