    While the security findings can be pretty elaborate and helpful, the code quality and performance focused findings are not that impressive and can often be detected by more basic or powerful tools like SonarQube (paying) or PMD (free). To see what I mean you can have a look at the list of Java code quality detectors, which is pretty short and contains a lot of simple findings like:

  • Spotbugs

    SpotBugs is FindBugs' successor. A tool for static analysis to look for bugs in Java code.

    I write a ton of CSS and could not find a command line stylesheet checker. I did find the NuHTML checker from W3C, cough, which also checks CSS:

    I wrote a script to convert the inset a CSS file into a dummy one-line HTML file, so that I can pass a CSS file to the script, and when errors are generated from the CSS, they are given using the correct line number.
