CodeClimate is a great tool for analysing JavaScript/Ruby code but sadly it does not support C++ yet.

Where could I find a similar tool that:

  • analyses C++ code for quality and performance.
  • integrates easily with GitHub or Travis.
  • is free for Open Source projects.
  • What platform OS?

  • I am looking for a hosted service. I don't want to run it on my computer. It should be part of a continuous integration build, and run et each GitHub commit / each Travis build.

The best bet is coverity.

  • Hosted
  • Java, C/C++ or C# code
  • Runs on open source project for free
  • Integrates easily with GitHub and Travis

It is subject to a maximum number of builds per day/week, 3 per day and 12 per week. If less then 10k lines down to 2 per week for projects greater than 1M lines.

  • I looked into Coverity, but my main problem is that it cannot be triggered on pull-requests, which is a no-go for me. Also, I didn't find any way of customizing the rules for the scan, but maybe I just didn't dig enough.

  • I would really like SonarQube, but like the OP, I'm looking for a hosted solution.
