Sonar Community Highlights, September 16 - September 22

Hey everyone!

Another busy week in the Sonar Community – @Colin was in Bilbao for this year’s Open Source Summit!

Like every week we want to spend some time saying thanks to everyone who prompted interesting discussions and gave us feedback on Sonar products that will help us continuously improve.




  • There has been a rather “hidden” setting for Javascript/Typescript analysis in SonarLint that affects how a subset of rules (using Typescript’s compiler) perform. You can read more about it here in @greg_ya’s thread (thanks for the report!) – long story short, we are going to improve logging and documentation. See SonarSource/SonarJS #4186 and SonarSource/SonarJS #4190.

  • @Anusha_jesuraj shared his struggles getting test rules executed in SonarLint, which led to SLE-732, to allow test file glob patterns to be specified at the project level.

Rule Improvements:

Once more, we extend our thanks to everyone mentioned here - and those we may have missed - for their efforts in strengthening this community and enhancing our Sonar products.

Please leave your own recognitions below – whether for another community member or a SonarSourcer who assisted you this week. If there’s someone you think should be acknowledged in next week’s roundup, don’t hesitate to let us know.

Colin, @ganncamp and @leith.darawsheh
