Code Climate Cppcheck Engine

codeclimate-cppcheck is a Code Climate engine that wraps Cppcheck. You can run it on your command line using the Code Climate CLI, or on our hosted analysis platform.

Cppcheck is a static analysis tool for C/C++ code.

Installation

  1. If you haven't already, install the Code Climate CLI.
  2. [optional] Run codeclimate engines:install cppcheck to install the Code Climate Cppcheck engine.
  3. Configure your .codeclimate.yml file. See example below.
  4. You're ready to analyze! Browse into your project's folder and run codeclimate analyze. If you skipped step 2, the Cppcheck engine will automatically be installed at this point, assuming it's enabled in .codeclimate.yml.

Configuration

Like the cppcheck command line tool itself, you can configure various aspects of the static analysis. Right now, the following options are supported in .codeclimate.yml:

  • check: issue categories to check. By default, no additional checks are enabled. Available values are: all, warning, style, performance, portability, information, unusedFunction, etc. Refer to the --enable= option of cppcheck for more information.
  • project: use Visual Studio project/solution (*.vcxproj/*sln) or compile database (compile_commands.json) for files to analyse, include paths, defines, platform and undefines. Refer to the --project= option of cppcheck for more information.
  • language: forces cppcheck to check all files as the given language. Valid values are: c, c++. Refer to the --language= option of cppcheck for more information.
  • stds: multiple language standards to check against. Refer to the --std= option of cppcheck for more information.
  • platform: specifies platform specific types and sizes. Available builtin platforms are: unix32, unix64, win32A, win32W, win64, etc. Refer to the --platform= option of cppcheck for more information.
  • defines: define preprocessor symbols. Refer to the -D option of cppcheck for more information.
  • undefines: undefine preprocessor symbols. Refer to the -U option of cppcheck for more information.
  • includes: paths for searching include files. First given path is searched for contained header files first. If paths are relative to source files, this is not needed. Refer to the -I option of cppcheck for more information.
  • max_configs: maximum number of configurations to check in a file before skipping it. Default is 12. max_configs can also be set to force, which forces cppcheck to check all configs. Refer to the --max-configs= and --force options of cppcheck for more information.
  • inconclusive: allow reporting issues that are not inconclusive. Refer to the --inconclusive option of cppcheck for more information.
  • suppressions-list: suppress warnings listed in the file. Refer to the --suppressions-list option of cppcheck for more information.
  • inline-suppr: allow suppression of warnings with inline comments, for example: // cppcheck-suppress arrayIndexOutOfBounds. Refer to the --inline-suppr option of cppcheck for more information

Additional options may be supported later.

An example .codeclimate.yml file:

version: "2"
plugins:
  cppcheck:
    enabled: true
    config:
      check: all
      project: compile_commands.json
      language: c++
      stds:
        - c++11
      platform: unix64
      defines:
      - "DEBUG=1"
      - "__cplusplus"
      undefines:
      - "DEBUG"
      includes:
      - include/
      max_configs: 42
      inconclusive: false
      suppressions-list: .cppcheck-suppressions
      inline-suppr: true
