How can I help my partner write better code?

This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on reddit.com/r/learnprogramming

Our great sponsors
  • Sonar - Write Clean Java Code. Always.
  • InfluxDB - Build time-series-based applications quickly and at scale.
  • SaaSHub - Software Alternatives and Reviews
  • 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.

    I’m a little out of date with Java, but I believe Checkstyle is currently popular: https://github.com/checkstyle/checkstyle

  • ExoPlayer

    An extensible media player for Android (by ValveSoftware)

    I would strongly suggest your partner start reading other people's code on things like Github, etc., and see how they're written. For example, looking at Valve software's ExoPlayer (here), we can see a number of things:

  • Sonar

    Write Clean Java Code. Always.. Sonar helps you commit clean code every time. With over 600 unique rules to find Java bugs, code smells & vulnerabilities, Sonar finds the issues while you focus on the work.

NOTE: The number of mentions on this list indicates mentions on common posts plus user suggested alternatives. Hence, a higher number means a more popular project.
