-- Too less variation -- Find duplicates in source code for various languages

Project description

Too less variation - A tool to discover code duplication in various languages

Purpose

Code duplication are hard to track across many files. There are tools existing like CPD (from PMD) which are doing a great job, but they require JAVA (or even some more obscure language) to run. So I decided to write a small tool which uses Pygments and python difflib to catch code duplications for many languages as possible

Requirements

Installation

pip install tlv

Usage

usage: tlv [-h] [--minlines MINLINES] [--mintoken MINTOKEN] [-j JOBS]
           [--lexer {...}]
           [--wildcard_token {...}]
           [--verbose] [--nodetails]
           files [files ...]

  --verbose             Verbose output
  --nodetails           Dump the details of a finding

By default tool guesses the content type by the filename, if that doesn’t work for you please see below

Specify a lexer

You can use a specific lexer by running the tool with the –lexer= option. When doing this all input files are processed by the specified lexer. So when using this option you should ensure that all passed files are of the specified file, else the results might be bogus.

Output

Output will be written to stdout. There are 2 possible finding types

  • Duplicate - The code is exactly the same
  • TooLessVariation - The code is the same, when removing all token types specified by –wildcard_token

if you don’t want to see the code itself, pass the –nodetails option
