Support for Scapegoat

sonar-scala provides a seamless integration with Scapegoat. Generate a Scapegoat report and sonar-scala will process it and create issues in SonarQube based on your quality profile. There are 118 Scapegoat inspections that are supported by sonar-scala.

Built-in quality profiles for Scala

sonar-scala provides two rules repositories and four built-in quality profiles - one for Scalastyle, one for Scapegoat as well as a combination of those two: Scalastyle+Scapegoat and the Recommended by sonar-scala profile, which is a subset of those that we recommend for the best results.

Coverage and unit test metrics

sonar-scala integrates with Scoverage and reports coverage results back to SonarQube. It also reads JUnit-style reports produced by testing frameworks like ScalaTest or Specs2 and turns those into test metrics in SonarQube.
