Code Conventions

Coding Format

A full code formatting example is available at the end of this page.

We follow standard Java conventions with the following notable exceptions:

  • Tabs, not spaces.
  • Brace placement is always next line.

The following are some common mistakes not covered by the code style check:

  • Add the copyright header to the beginning of every new text file.
  • Imports in a single logical block.
  • A single blank line separating logical blocks.
  • An extra tab on multi line annotations.

IntelliJ Integration

The easiest way to follow our style is to use IntelliJ's formatter. To install it, simply download this xml and follow this guide to import it into your IDE. Then you can press Ctrl+Alt+L to format the current document.

If you don't like tools formatting your code for you, you can add a maven run configuration that runs checkstyle. Simply create a new Maven run configuration, and set the command line to -Dcheckstyle.skip=false checkstyle:check

You can also install the Checkstyle-IDEA plugin, and it will checkstyle as you type. To install the plugin, go to File->Settings->Plugins. Click Browse Repositories, search for Checkstyle-IDEA, and install it.

After installing and restarting IDEA, then go to File->Settings->Other Settings->Checkstyle. Under Configuration File, click +, and select the checkstyle.xml from your RuneLite folder. Make sure you check the Active box next to your checkstyle to enable it. checkstyle location

Imports

We also don't like overhaul of wildcard imports, so please turn those off

  1. By changing Class count to use import with '*' to 999
  2. By changing Names count to use static imports with '*' to 10 (static imports for f.e. ItemIDs with wildcards are preferred)

See screenshot below for correct values for mentioned 2 fields.

IntelliJ's default Code Style will optimize and re-order imports. To disable the re-ordering of imports, remove the section in the Import Layout list.

Also remove the entries in Packages to Use Import with '*' to stop the replacement of i.e import java.awt.Canvas with import java.awt.*.
