  • GitHub repo Checkstyle

    Checkstyle is a development tool to help programmers write Java code that adheres to a coding standard. By default it supports the Google Java Style Guide and Sun Code Conventions, but is highly configurable. It can be invoked with an ANT task and a command line program.

    Another example can be applied to code quality itself. Most static analyzers are configurable. If you tried to set Checkstyle Google configuration to the mature project, you would probably get hundreds or even thousands of errors. You can start with just one rule. Ar first glance, it seems not so important. But after the moment when the configuration reaches the repository, you can be sure that no one else can violate this rule in the future.

  • OPS
