sbt-findbugs - Static code analysis via FindBugs from within sbt

Build Status Codacy Grade SBT 0.13 version SBT 1.0 version

This sbt plug-in enables you to analyze your (Java) code with the help of the great FindBugs tool. It defines a findbugs sbt action for that purpose.

Install the plugin by adding the following to project/plugins.sbt:

addSbtPlugin("com.github.sbt" % "sbt-findbugs" % "<version>")

And then run the plugin with sbt findbugs. This will generate a FindBugs report in target/scala-xx/findugs/report.xml.

Defining exclude/include filters

Defining filters inline

Just use Scala inline XML for the setting, for example:

findbugsIncludeFilters := Some(<FindBugsFilter>
  <Match>
    <Class name="de.johoop.Meep" />
  </Match>
</FindBugsFilter>)

Using filter files

You can also read the filter settings from files in a more conventional way:

findbugsIncludeFilters := Some(baseDirectory.value / "findbugs-include-filters.xml")

Or, when your configuration is zipped and previously published to a local repo:

findbugsIncludeFilters := {
  val configFiles = update.value.select(module = moduleFilter(name = "velvetant-sonar"))
  val configFile = configFiles.headOption flatMap { zippedFile =>
    IO.unzip(zippedFile, target.value / "rules") find (_.name contains "velvetant-sonar-findbugs.xml")
  }

  configFile map scala.xml.XML.loadFile orElse sys.error("unable to find config file in update report")
}
