GNU LGPL v3
Description / Features
This plugin enables the analysis of Python projects.
Current feature list:
- Recognition of basic program entities:
- Python modules
- Python packages
- Provides basic size metrics:
- files (number of)
- lines of comments
- lines of code
- Static code checking via pylint (covering as well code style as code defects aspects)
- Provides cyclomatic complexity metrics including:
- Complexity per function/method
- Complexity per module
- Complexity distributions
- Recognition of code duplication
- Basic highlighting mode for Python in Sonar UI
This plugin has following dependencies:
- For complexity analysis the Python interpreter is needed, anything >=2.5 will do.
- Pylint is used for the rules compliance analysis.
- Copy the jar-archive into <sonar home>
- Restart the Sonar web server
Python plugin uses the following properties during analysis. See here for the ways how to pass them to the plugin.
Path to the pylint executable to use in pylint analysis. Set to empty to use the default one.
Path to the pylint configuration file (relative to project root) to use in pylint analysis. Set to empty to use the default.
Comma separated list of paths relative to project root to add to PYTHONPATH when executing pylint.
You can analyze your projects using the usual means (see this page for all available). Just make sure to set a couple of properties. See below how to do it for maven and sonar-runner.
Analyzing with maven
Add your source directories to the build and the language-property to the properties section of your pom. Syntax:
Make sure the dynamic analysis not switched of. Syntax:
- Make sure sonar-server is running
Start the analysis with
See here for general information about analyzing via maven.
Analyzing with sonar-runner
- Add a
sonar-project.properties-file to the root directory of your project
- Make sure your sonar-server is running
sonar-runnerin the directory containing the
