Syntax Checking

Redcar supports Syntax Checking for Ruby, Javascript, Java, Mirah, and Groovy. Syntax is checked upon file save, and can be disabled from the menu in Plugins > Syntax Checking.


Ruby syntax checking runs in 1.8 mode by default, unless JRuby is started with the --1.9 flag



Javascript syntax checking is provided using JSLint. It can be configured using JSLint option comments

###Java and Groovy



Java and Groovy syntax checking supports adding files to the classpath before checking syntax, for dependency validation. To enabled, write a script in [project root]/.redcar/classpath.groovy which will return the proper paths as an array.

Example: (See here for an extended example)

// classpath retriever for all jars in project "lib" folder and compiled classes in project
// TODO: Add groovy grape to pull ivy dependencies
def redcar_config  = new File(getClass().protectionDomain.codeSource.location.path).parentFile
def project        = redcar_config.parentFile

def classpath      = []

//compiled classes
def target_classes = new File(project.path + File.separator + "target" + File.separator + "classes")
classpath << target_classes.path

//installed libraries
def lib            = new File(project.path + File.separator + "lib")
lib.list().each {name -> classpath << lib.path+File.separator+name}

return classpath.toArray()
