  • Setting up linting/formatting for an Android project

    In my experience, I have faced these issues while trying to keep the code style consistent across the team - 1. ktlint and "Reformat Code" in Android Studio produce different outputs. This causes issues as most developers find it easier to use "Reformat Code" in AS but if you have a ktlint check on CI, the checks sometimes fail. 2. Different AS versions produce different `codeStyles.xml` file. Sometimes, on updating AS, it automatically adds new rules to the `codeStyles.xml` file. These rules might not be compatible with ktlint and might only work on specific AS versions.

    Not even an Android Studio-specific feature, but rather a feature of the underlying IntelliJ. Just select Code > Analyze code > Silent code cleanup and your entire project will be cleaned up using the default linter (this can be combined awesomely with Ktlint).

    Linting is the process of analyzing code for potential errors and one of the ways we can do that in Kotlin is using Ktlint. As per the documentation:

    When our team began migrating to Jetpack Compose, we wanted to avoid common mistakes due to our limited expertise. We discovered detekt and compose-rules for static code analysis which was also added to our pre-commit hook.

    In protection rules, I added build workflow in Require status checks to pass before merging. This is to ensure that before merging code in master branch, build should run successfully. I also added Jacoco Code Coverage to make sure that enough unit tests are available in project and Detekt to make sure that code in project is readable. I added them in build configuration. Even if one of them gives error, build will fail. Whenever, someone push code in pull request, build action will run and check if build is running successfully or not.
