Sonar-scanner downloading unneeded plugins

I’m trying to setup sonar-scanner as part of a tox build running in a docker container. When it runs it downloads a TON of jar files that look like plugins for other languages I don’t need. How do I tell sonar-scanner to just download python support?

You cannot tell sonar-scanner to download only specific plugins. But the plugins are cached in ~/.sonar/cache, so they won’t be downloaded during every analysis if that folders is preserved between analysis.


I’d like to request a feature to filter the plugins. We build using docker containers so the cache is lost with every build.

Any update here? Is there a way to request a feature?


This is the place to request a feature :

Thank you !
