VVV is a tool for easy validation and linting integration for your software project containing multiple kinds of files. It integrates with version control and prevents committing files containing bad formatting or syntax errors.
Example output from validating the demo repository where we find errors in a Python and a CSS file. You enter the folder and run vvv against the current folder (.)
$ vvv . Running vvv against . /Users/moo/code/vvv/demo/demo.py validation output: ************* Module demo E0602: 1,9: Undefined variable 'get_magic' W3C CSS Validator results for file:/Users/moo/code/vvv/demo/foobar.css Line : 2 .foo Property backgrnd doesn't exist : yellow
VVV is written in Python programming language and is compatible with Python interpreter 2.7 or later, including 3.x series.
- Enforce coding conventions across multiple developers
- Enable linting and validators support for your software project with a single command
- Automatically guide committers to policy guidelines and let them fix errors themselves, instead of having post-commit personal coaching.
- Provide sane default validation and linting options for all popular programming languages and file formats
- Run VVV as continuous integration service with systems like Travis CI or Jenkins and shoot down bad code push-ins
What VVV doesn't do
- This is not automated testing tool. We just scan files against a policy, not for programming errors. Linting tools tend to pick up programming errors, too though, like mistyped names.
- Set-up for your software repository with two files validation-options.yaml (configuration) and validation-files.yaml (whitelist/blacklist)
- VVV automatically downloads and locally installs required software - you don't need to spend time hunting downloads or distribution packages
- Check file against hard tabs and whitespace policies - no more different tab width ever
- Prevent committing hard source code breakpoints, like Python's import pdb ; pdb.set_trace()
- Support (on its way) for Subversion, Git, Github, Travis CI, Jenkins and other popular version control and continuous integration systems
