Bears for coala (Code Analysis Application)

Project description


coala-bears is a Python package containing all the bears that are officially supported by coala. It features more than 78 bears covering 54 languages. Here is a generated list that contains information about each bear, such as the languages it supports and what fixes it can apply to your code.


To install the latest stable version run:

$ pip3 install coala-bears


To install the latest development version run:

$ pip3 install coala-bears --pre

The latest code from the master branch is automatically deployed as the development version in PyPI.

To also install all bears for coala at once run:

$ pip3 install coala-bears

You can also use cib (coala Installs Bears), which is an experimental bear manager that lets you install, upgrade, uninstall, check dependencies, etc. for bears. To install it, run:

$ pip3 install cib

For usage instructions, consult this link.

Be sure to use the latest version of pip, the default pip from Debian doesn’t support our dependency version number specifiers. You will have to use a virtualenv in this case.

You can read more at our documentation. There you can learn how to easily write bears yourself! Be sure to let us know if you do so, so we’ll be able to include it here and spread the word about it.


For more information about how to do basic analysis, check out the coala README.
