For an out-of-the-box setup, you can use the following docker-compose recipe or a docker image with SonarQube which contains bundled sonar-scala plugin. Please see mwz/sonar-scala-docker for more details or simply follow this guide.
Alternatively, if you already have a SonarQube instance or you don't want to use
Docker, you can download the latest
release jar into your SonarQube
/opt/sonarqube/extensions/plugins and restart SonarQube either
manually or using the update center.
For automating the analysis of your Scala projects, check out
mwz/sbt-sonar sbt plugin and the
documentation here. Alternatively, see the
examples directory in
sonar-scala repository, which includes example projects for SBT (
5.x) and Maven (
3.x) along with basic instructions on how to
execute SonarQube analysis for each of those projects without sbt-sonar.
Let's start off by adding the following sbt plugins to your Scala project, in
Let's start a local SonarQube server for demonstration purposes.
Once SonarQube starts up, you should see the message saying that
SonarQube is up and the UI should be available through http://localhost. The
login credentials are
admin:admin in case you want to browse around.
Finally, let's execute a SonarQube scan via sbt.
Once the scan completes successfully, you can navigate to http://localhost/projects to see the results.
This basic setup should report to SonarQube all of the useful Size, Coverage and Test metrics (listed here) in addition to raising any Scalastyle issues that were identified in your project.
Let's add Scapegoat to our project to get even more useful report.
Add following sbt plugin to your Scala project, in the
addSbtPlugin("com.sksamuel.scapegoat" % "sbt-scapegoat" % "1.1.0")
Set the latest Scapegoat version and the format of a report generated by
Scapegoat in your
Also, to make sure your project doesn't fail to compile due to any Scapegoat errors, you can temporarily override the default severity level of all the inspections - all Scapegoat issues will be still reported to SonarQube with the correct severity level according to the configuration in your quality profile.
scalacOptions in Scapegoat += "-P:scapegoat:overrideLevels:all=Warning"
You can now run the
scapegoat task using sbt, which should generate a report
with all the style issues that Scapegoat identified.
Once you've done that, you will need to run the
sonarScan task again to
include the Scapegoat report in SonarQube analysis.
Here are all of the sbt tasks put together:
