All checks have the option to only check by one or more file extensions, by shebang as well as to exclude one or more folders from the whole search.

Note: Fixable options are currently in testing phase. Please report any bugs.

Type Tool Fixable Description
Git git-conflicts Scan files and check if they contain git conflicts.
Git git-ignored Scan git directory and see if ignored files are still in git cache.
File file-cr Scan files and check if they contain CR (Carriage Return only).
File file-crlf Scan files and check if they contain CRLF (Windows Line Feeds).
File file-empty Scan files and check if they are empty (0 bytes).
File file-nullbyte-char Scan files and check if they contain a null-byte character (\x00).
File file-trailing-newline Scan files and check if they contain a trailing newline.
File file-trailing-single-newline Scan files and check if they contain exactly one trailing newline.
File file-trailing-space Scan files and check if they contain trailing whitespaces.
File file-utf8 Scan files and check if they have a non UTF-8 encoding.
File file-utf8-bom Scan files and check if they contain BOM (Byte Order Mark): <U+FEFF>.
Syntax syntax-bash Scan shell files for bash syntax errors.
Syntax syntax-css Scan CSS files for CSS syntax errors.
Syntax syntax-js Scan JS files for JS syntax errors.
Syntax syntax-json Scan files for JSON syntax errors.
Syntax syntax-markdown Scan files for Markdown syntax errors.
Syntax syntax-perl Scan Perl files for Perl syntax errors.
Syntax syntax-php Scan files for PHP syntax errors.
Syntax syntax-python Scan Python files for Python syntax errors.
Syntax syntax-ruby Scan Ruby files for Ruby syntax errors.
Syntax syntax-scss Scan SCSS files for SCSS syntax errors.
Syntax syntax-sh Scan shell files for /bin/sh syntax errors.
Code Conventions inline-css Scan files and check if they contain inline css code.
Code Conventions inline-js Scan files and check if they contain inline javascript code.
Regex regex-grep egrep (grep -E) regex version to scan files for an occurance.
Regex regex-perl perl regex version to scan files for an occurance.

Learn / validate

All of the above scripts offer the --dry option which will only show you the built command without actually executing it:

$ regex-grep --path=. --ignore=".git,.svn" --shebang=sh --size --text \
--custom="if[[:space:]]*\[\[" --dry

find . -type f -not \( -path "./.git*" -o -path "./.svn*" \) ! -size 0 -print0 | \
   xargs -0 -P 8 -n1 grep -Il '' | \
   tr '\n' '\0' | \
   xargs -0 -P 8 -n1 awk '/^#!.*(\/sh|[[:space:]]+sh)/{print FILENAME}' | \
   tr '\n' '\0' | \
   xargs -0 -P 8 -n1  sh -c 'if [ -f "${1}" ]; then grep --color=always -inHE "if[[:space:]]*\[\[" "$1" || true; fi' --


Some of the above scripts offer the --fix option (see table above), with which you are actually able to fix the problem. You can also combine it with --dry to see how the actual fix command looks like:

$ file-utf8 --path=dump.sql --fix --dry

find dump.sql -type f -print0 | \
   xargs -0 -P 8 -n1  sh -c 'if [ -f "${1}" ]; then isutf8 "$1" >/dev/null || (TERM=vt100 vi -u NONE -n -es -c "set fileencoding=utf8" -c "wq" "$1" > /dev/tty && echo "Fixing: $1" || echo "FAILED: $1"); fi' --

Custom regex contributions

regex-grep and regex-perl have a lot of potential for doing custom project validation.

In order to give you an idea, have a look at the compiled Regex Contributions.

Please use pull requests to add useful checks.

General Usage

  • All tools share the same pattern (except git-ignored) and can be used with the same command line arguments.
  • Some tools have an additional option --custom="" to overwrite the command itself (this is explained and shown in detail in each command's --help option).


# Required:
  --path            # Specify the path where to scan

# Optional pattern (each option is logically and-ed):
  --fix             # Fix the problems for the specified files (not every check)

  --text            # Only scan non-binary files
  --size            # Only scan non-empty files (greater 0 bytes)
  --shebang         # Only scan files (shell scripts) that match a certain shebang
  --extension       # Only scan files with these file extensions
  --ignore          # Ignore files/folders

# Optional misc:
  --config          # Specify configuration file
  --confpre         # Alter configuration directive prefix for this check
  --verbose         # Show files and commands as being processed
  --debug           # Show additional debug messages
  --list            # Only show files that would be processed (no processing)
  --dry             # Show command that would be executed (no processing)

# System
  --help            # Show help
  --info            # Show version of required binaries
  --version         # Show tool version

./configure --prefix=/opt
make install

Awesome CI Docker image

Docker image

Instead of installing awesome-ci and all its required dependencies locally on your computer, you can also use the bundled Docker image cytopia/awesome-ci which has everything pre-installed and is built nightly by travis-ci.

docker run -v ${PWD}:/ac cytopia/awesome-ci file-crlf --path=/ac

The above example is using file-crlf to scan the current directory for files containing Windows newlines:

  • ${PWD} (the current host directory) is mounted into the container's /ac directoy
  • file-crlf path then points (inside the container) to /ac (which is the current host directory)
  • /ac can actually be named by whatever name you want

If you use an awesome-ci configuration which is not inside the directory you want to check, you will also have to mount that into the container:

docker run \
    -v /host/path/to/awesome-ci.conf:/etc/awesome-ci.conf \
    -v ${PWD}:/ac cytopia/awesome-ci file-crlf --path=/ac --config=/etc/awesome-ci.conf
