krank: Krank checks your code source comments for important markers

[ bsd3, library, program, quality ] [ Propose Tags ]

Comments are part of our code and are not usually tested correctly. Hence their content can become incoherent or obsolete. Krank tries to avoid that by running checkers on the comment themselves.

Krank

Hackage CircleCI

Krank checks your code source comments for important markers.

Comments are part of our code and are not usually tested correctly. Hence their content can become incoherent or obsolete. Krank tries to avoid that by running checkers on the comments themselves.

Usage

Just launch the krank command with a list of files as arguments. It works on any kind of source code file and prints a report of informations found in the comments:

$ krank $(git ls-files)

default.nix:20:20: info:
  still Open: https://github.com/NixOS/nix/issues/2733

foo.hs:67:11: error:
  now Closed: https://github.com/bazelbuild/bazel/issues/6313

krank will fail (i.e. non-zero exit code) in case of any error.

Here krank is telling us that our source code links to github issues which are now closed. Time to remove some workarounds now that upstream issues are fixed!

You can check krank --help for a list of options, such as configuring your API token for external services, such as github and gitlab.

Available checkers

  • IssueTracker is listing Github and Gitlab issue linked in comment. Issues which are still Open will be listed as info and Closed issues are listed as error. Convenient to know when to remove workarounds.

Red herring

If you want to ignore all krank checkers on a given line of code, add krank:ignore-line on this same line. Krank will then skip this line and not report anything on it
