Linette

Build Status

Custom Lint checks for Android development. The name Linette comes from the etymology of the word "lint".

Setup

Check out the repository to your local machine via:

git clone https://github.com/bignerdranch/linette.git

Then, from a terminal, run the following command in the Linette project:

./gradlew clean build test install

Now the custom Lint checks have been built, packaged, and installed to your ~/.android/lint folder.

If you don't want the custom Lint checks globally available, instead preferring a project-by-project basis, then there is a second option with the following script:

./gradlew aarWrapper:assemble

This wraps the JAR file and generates an aar library file in aarWrapper/build/outputs/aar/ that may be included as a normal dependency in any Android project - either by copying it to the libs folder of an Android application project, adding it to a centralized dependency repo, or any other method for adding a library to a project. Lint will pick up on the inner JAR inside the dependency, thus adding the custom Lint checks to the project.

Verify

To check that the custom Lint checks are now available, run the following commands:

lint --show <issue-id>

For example:

lint --show Enum

lint --show MinSdk

lint --show Todo

And to actually run the Lint checks, try the following command from a project of your choice:

./gradlew lint

Alternatively, you can just use Android Studio's Analyze->Inspect Code... menu option.

Enjoy!
