I wanted to give SonarCloud.io a try and tested it with https://github.com/marcinbak/android-sonar-kotlin. Although this project contains a configuration for the detect-plugin, the good ruleset of detekt was not applied on server side.
I think, the reason for this is that SonarCloud runs the official Kotlin plugin, not detekt/sonar-kotlin. I also think that it is not possible to use the detekt/sonar-kotlin in SonarCloud.
So, here are my questions
a) Are my assumptions correct?
b) Is there a way to have SonarCloud use the results of the improved scanner?
c) Is Kotlin “too new” that the wish to have a decent static code analysis is neglectged?
