YAML configuration file

CodeOversight makes it very easy to configure your project's Code Rules. One of the ways you can configure the Code Rules is by adding a codeoversight.yml file to the root of your repository.

Prefer not to add a configuration file? You can also configure the Code Rules from within the App

Creating a configuration file

When a codeoversight.yml is present in the root directory of your repository it will automatically be picked up and used.

Want to get kick-started creating your own configuration file? Use this handy template!

To view all possible values with explanations, please view the corresponding language Code Rule doc:

Note: YAML configuration files will cause the build to fail when a tab is used for spacing.

Pre-configured configurations

Using a configuration file makes it very easy to share with one another. We've got a few configurations available for you to use:
