Codacy integrates with GitLab

Codacy + Gitlab

In addition to our cloud SaaS product Codacy.com, we also offer an on-premises solution that our clients can install on their infrastructure behind a firewall. As we are seeing more and more companies adopting GitLab, we are happy to announce today that Codacy’s Enterprise version now integrates with GitLab.

integration with GitLab

After you enable this integration in your account you’ll be able to add repos with one click; private repositories are added with a unique private deployment key (to avoid key reusage).

This adds support for Merge Requests (each Merge Request is updated with a status once the analysis has finished), post-commit hooks (for faster analysis) and auto-comments (on the issue line).

The auto-comments integration in GitLab enables engineering team to directly get feedback in GitLab. Get new security, code style issues or best practices issues directly into your GitLab pull-request.

Interested in learning more on how Codacy can help you and your engineering team ship better code faster? Get in touch now!

Codacy integrates with Checkstyle

Checkstyle is one of the best and most comprehensive static analysis tools for Java code.
We’re happy to announce that Checkstyle rules are now supported on Codacy (and since Checkstyle was already using Codacy, it is now a bi-lateral relationship).
Some of the rules were already in Codacy, but a lot weren’t; this brings Codacy’s Java patterns up to 379, covering code style, compatibility, error-proneness, performance, security and unused code.
Codacy also checks for duplication of Java code and you can add coverage to your repo.
Since there are several coding styles for Java, we currently don’t enforce any of them, so none of these patterns are currently enabled by default; we’ll be adding a few bundles so you can select some sets of rules.
