Haxe Checkstyle is a static analysis tool to help developers write Haxe code that adheres to a coding standard.

It automates the process of checking Haxe code to spare developers of this boring (but important) task.

Code conventions improve readability, allowing team members to understand each other's code better.

Ideal for any project that wants to enforce coding conventions.

Static analysis is usually performed as part of a code review.

Code Climate

Haxe Checkstyle is available on the Code Climate platform (free for open source projects). It requires a .codeclimate.yml file and an optional but recommended checkstyle.json file to be added to the root of your repository - see here for more details.

When everything is set up, Code Climate automatically runs Haxe Checkstyle for you on each new commit (also on pull requests if configured that way).

The current number of issues can be tracked via a badge:
