Code Style

The source code uses the CheckStyle tool to keep the code style consistent.

In addition, we check for code style when building the project using the Maven CheckStyle Plugin. A pull request without proper code style would fail to build.

IntelliJ Setup

On IntelliJ follow these steps to configure CheckStyle:

  1. Install the CheckStyle plugin
  2. Open Preferences/Settings and go to Editor > Code Style.
  3. Select Project as Scheme and click the settings icon next to it.
  4. Select Import Scheme > CheckStyle Configuration and locate the checkstyle.xml file at the root of Gephi's repository.

You're done. You can now use the built-in Code > Reformat Code tool. The resulting code style will match what is on the Gephi repository.
