Review Bot, the automated code reviewer (worker)

Project description

Review Bot is a tool for automating tasks on code uploaded to Review Board, and posting the results as a code review. Review Bot was built to automate the execution of static analysis tools.

The Review Bot worker is the service component of Review Bot that performs the code reviews, managed by the Review Bot extension. Workers on be installed on a single server, or can be distributed across several, helping to review large numbers of changes at once.

Supported Code Checking Tools

The Review Bot worker can perform automated code reviews using any of the following tools:

  • BuildBot “try” – Builds the patch in a configured BuildBot environment
  • checkstyle – A static analysis tool that provides a variety of checkers for Java code
  • Cppcheck – A static analysis tool for C/C++ code
  • CppLint – Checks C++ code against Google’s style guide
  • flake8 – A wrapper around several Python code quality tools
  • PMD – A static analysis tool that provides checkers for many languages
  • pycodestyle – A code style checker for Python code
  • pyflakes – A static analysis tool for Python code

See the links above for installation and usage instructions.

The worker is provided through the reviewbot-worker Python package.

See the documentation to learn how to install and configure the worker and the rest of Review Bot.
