SonarLint now covers Kotlin & Ruby code in IntelliJ


(Clint Cameron) #1

We’re happy to let you know that SonarLint can now detect bugs, vulnerabilities and code smells in Kotlin and Ruby code! This is available for developers using IntelliJ IDEA or more specific flavors like Android Studio and RubyMine.

More than 40 rules are continuously checked, with the usual ruleset configuration available right from your IDE. To discover all the Kotlin and Ruby rules in more detail, visit

Of course, for SonarQube and SonarCloud users, connected mode is available to synch your Quality Profile and project data on your Kotlin and Ruby projects.

Support for Kotlin and Ruby, together with more usability improvements, is available in SonarLint for IntelliJ v4.0 (detailed release notes are available here). As usual, if you wish to discuss this new release or to share any feedback about our products and features, feel free to let us know here on the forum. Happy coding!
