Howto: using snapshot releases of detekt

· One min read

detekt uses bintray for releases and artifactory for snapshots. To configure snapshot usage in your gradle plugin apply the following changes to your build file:

detekt {
// if a new release of detekt stays binary compatible with a previous
// release, just change the 'toolVersion'
toolVersion = "1.0.0-RC16-20190629.171442-3"
config = files("$projectDir/detekt/config.yml")
baseline = file("$projectDir/baseline.xml")

reports {
html {
enabled = true
destination = file("$rootDir/detekt.html")

// this changes may be necessary if detekt's core modules like 'cli, core, api or rules'
// change in a way that is not binary compatible to older releases
dependencies {
// use the detekt configuration for only official detekt modules
detekt "io.gitlab.arturbosch.detekt:detekt-cli:1.0.0-RC16-20190629.171442-3"
detekt "io.gitlab.arturbosch.detekt:detekt-core:1.0.0-RC16-20190629.171442-3"
detekt "io.gitlab.arturbosch.detekt:detekt-api:1.0.0-RC16-20190629.171442-3"
// use detektPlugins for detekt plugins - custom or official like the formatting one
detektPlugins "io.gitlab.arturbosch.detekt:detekt-formatting:1.0.0-RC16-20190629.171442-3"
