Clang Static Analyzer

The Clang Static Analyzer will attempt to compile your C, C++, or Objective C source code and then check for common programming errors.


This tool requires a modern version of the Clang compiler to be installed on the system running the Review Bot worker. This is available through most system package managers on Linux and via the XCode command line tools on Mac OS.


This tool requires full repository access, which is available for Git repositories. Each repository you intend to use must be configured in the Review Bot worker config file. See Worker Configuration for more details.

Because C, C++, and Objective C source code often requires numerous external dependencies or compile-time flags, the tool configuration allows you to specify additional command line arguments that will be passed to clang. It’s recommended that you set up the worker on a system which is already set up to build your software in order to ensure that the necessary build environment is available.
