CheckStyle plugin for 4.0?

Hi,

I know there was JetStyle many moons ago but this hasn't been ipdated since
2002.

Is there anyone out there willing to take this on and create a checkstyle
plugin for Idea just like the version for Eclipse? I would do it myself, but
I have no idea how to write plugins for either IDE and I have no time to sit
and learn! :(

Thanks
Scott

The majority of the code audits done by CheckStyle are available in the InspectionGadgets plugin, in a much more IDEA-aware way. Check it out. I think you'll like it.

Yeah, I agree; I absolutely love the Inspection Gadgets plugin.

Unfortunately (I forgot to mention in my previous post) the company standards police have been out and a decree stating CheckStyle must be used has been issued. Even more unfortunate is the fact that I am the only person in my company using Idea (Eclipse became the editor of choice - due to it being free... these people have no taste!!) and therefore I am constantly striving to make my development environment entirely Eclipse free but this CheckStyle thing has put a spanner in those works.

What does check style do that can't be done via the inspection power pack
or PMD?


>I use IPP to check for all kinds of bad programming issues

I don't really know?

I think the inspection power pack is far better and I do use it anyway, but
in order to stick to company policy I have to use CheckStyle. :( I can
switch to Eclipse in order to run CheckStyle and produce the documentation
from its results, but it would just be nice to have it in Idea. The eclipse
plugin also marks the code with a small warning icon and the tooltip text
when hovering over the icon tells you what needs to be fixed. Little
festures like that would be nice with an Idea version of the plugin.
