“If we keep our clocks in sync with Daylight Saving Time,
then why don't we adjust our code when terminology evolves in our organization…?”

Stop wasting the mental bandwidth of your team by exposing them to hundreds of examples of legacy terminology within your code base.

Chameleon is a plugin for the IntelliJ Platform that shows the preferred name of old terminology. It offers developers 1-click refactoring for each instance of the undesired names they encounter.

With Chameleon no term is too difficult to change. Stop ignoring naming issues, and make the first step to a more evolvable codebase.

Chameleon acts like a spellchecker for your terminology. It will detect any violations of terms that you want to replace, it shows what the suggested alternative is and offers a way to automatically replace the current occurrence.
