We are new here in this forum (I am writing in behalf of my team), so first of all, forgive us if we are not writing in the right forum place, or it has been previously discussed already in other old topics.
Coming back to the main topic, we are developing a tailored-made solution with an ESP32 device in both C and C++ programming languages, using the Visual Code Studio and the PlatformIO framework, and we would like to execute a SonarQube instance which is in the company’s cloud already (a Developer Edition in fact) through jenkins in order to evaluate the code quality
Unlike projects which use interpreted languajes such as java, python, etc… the compiled projects need to be built along with the build-wrapper-linux-x86-64 tool, which both are usually called in the same sentence → build-wrapper-linux-x86-64 --out-dir build_wrapper_output_directory make clean all.
The use of CI/CD is not possible due to a gitlab limitations from our company - sad, but true. Apparently, the only way right now is to upload the code and use a build proces in the cloud itself (it has the build-wrapper-linux-x86-64 tool already).
The real issue is the third-party dependance libraries (ESP32 and other needed ones), which we do not know how to link all together in the same build process, and more important, we do not know how to avoid uploading all files to the repository in order to execute the makefile, which would be a bad practice for sure.
We would be glad to hear possible choices we could have in order to achieve the QA tasks.
Thank you very much beforehand, our apologies for the inconveniences, and looking forward to hearing from you.
