As a lead dev, I often look at the complexity metric when a dev submit a PR; I take it as a first indicator of: “do I need to go deep in this one or not?” or “am i going to need a lot of energy for this?”.
But apart from that, I don’t know much how to make a better use of it. It’s great to have complexity score for each files but it would be helpful to have hints of which part are problematic, where to start to decrease this score, etc.
How do you use it? Do you have tips for taking the most of it?
