Codacy Checkstyle

This is the docker engine we use at Codacy to have Checkstyle support. You can also create a docker to integrate the tool and language of your choice! See the codacy-engine-scala-seed repository for more information.

Codacy Badge Build Status


You can create the docker by doing:

sbt universal:stage
docker build -t codacy-checkstyle .

The docker is ran with the following command:

docker run -it -v $srcDir:/src -v $configFile:/.codacyrc  <DOCKER_NAME>:<DOCKER_VERSION>

Generate Docs

The documentation generator is using the pandoc tool to convert html sections to markdown. The pandoc version used currently is 2.7.3 which can be downloaded here. Having pandoc in PATH you can follow these steps:

  1. Update the checkstyleVersion value in build.sbt

  2. Run the DocGenerator

sbt "runMain codacy.checkstyle.DocGenerator"


We use the codacy-plugins-test to test our external tools integration. You can follow the instructions there to make sure your tool is working as expected.
