Gradle Lint Plugin

Purpose

The Gradle Lint plugin is a pluggable and configurable linter tool for identifying and reporting on patterns of misuse or deprecations in Gradle scripts and related files. It is inspired by the excellent ESLint tool for Javascript and by the formatting in NPM's eslint-friendly-formatter package.

It assists a centralized build tools team in gently introducing and maintaining a standard build script style across their organization.

Getting Started

Read the full documentation.

To apply this plugin:

buildscript { repositories { jcenter() } }
plugins {
  id 'nebula.lint' version '9.3.2'
}

Important: For now, in a multi-module build you must apply lint to the root project, at a minimum.

Alternatively:

buildscript {
  repositories { jcenter() }
  dependencies {
    classpath 'com.netflix.nebula:gradle-lint-plugin:latest.release'
  }
}


apply plugin: 'nebula.lint'

Define which rules you would like to lint against:

gradleLint.rules = ['all-dependency'] // add as many rules here as you'd like

For an enterprise build, we recommend defining the lint rules in a init.gradle script or in a gradle script that is included via the Gradle apply from mechanism.

For multimodule projects, we recommend applying the plugin in an allprojects block:

allprojects {
  apply plugin: 'nebula.lint'
  gradleLint.rules = ['all-dependency'] // add as many rules here as you'd like
}
