This blip is not on the current edition of the Radar. If it was on one of the last few editions it is likely that it is still relevant. If the blip is older it might no longer be relevant and our assessment might be different today. Unfortunately, we simply don't have the bandwidth to continuously review blips from previous editions of the RadarUnderstand more

Detekt is a static code analysis tool for Kotlin. It provides code smell analysis and complexity reports based on highly configurable rule sets. It can be run from the command line and, using plugins, via Gradle, SonarQube and IntelliJ. Our teams have found great value in using Detekt to maintain high code quality. When analysis and report generation are integrated into a build pipeline, it's obviously important that the reports are checked on a regular basis and the team sets aside time to act on the findings.

Detekt is a static code analysis tool for Kotlin. It finds code smells and code complexity. You can run it from the command line or use its plugins for integration with popular developer tools such as Gradle (to perform code analysis via builds) or SonarQube (to perform code coverage in addition to static code analysis), and IntelliJ. Detekt is a great addition to build pipelines of Kotlin applications.
