DESCRIPTION:

Analyze code for potentially uncalled / dead methods, now with auto-removal.

FEATURES/PROBLEMS:

  • Static analysis of code. Can be easily hooked up to a CI.

  • As with all static analysis tools of dynamic languages, can't be 100%.

  • Whitelisting known good methods by name or regexp.

  • Use –rails for Rails-specific domain knowledge.

  • Use debride_rm to brazenly remove all unused methods. BE CAREFUL.

  • Use `debride_rails_whitelist` to generate an emperical whitelist from logs.

  • Uses path_expander, so you can use:

    • dir_arg – expand a directory automatically

    • @file_of_args – persist arguments in a file

    • -path_to_subtract – ignore intersecting subsets of files/directories

SYNOPSIS:

% debride lib

These methods MIGHT not be called:

MyClass
  good_method                         lib/some/file.rb:16
  bad_method                          lib/some/file.rb:20
...

But you know that good_method is called (perhaps because it is public API), then you can whitelist it:

% echo good_method > whitelist.txt
% debride --whitelist whitelist.txt lib

These methods MIGHT not be called:

MyClass
  bad_method                          lib/some/file.rb:20
...

Usage example for a typical rails application:

# dump rake routes into a file
% rake routes > routes.txt
# generate whitelist based on routes and usages from production log
% debride_rails_whitelist routes.txt log/production.log | sort -u > whitelist.txt
# add migration methods
% echo up >> whitelist.txt
% echo down >> whitelist.txt
% echo change >> whitelist.txt
# output debride report co standard output with the following options:
# ignore typical rails methods, 
# specify generated whitelist,
# run in current directory (".")
% debride --rails --whitelist whitelist.txt .

You can also use regexps in your whitelist by delimiting them with //'s.
