Bazaar Style Checker 0.1.1 released

I’m pleased to announce that Bazaar Style Checker 0.1.1 is now available. Get it at Launchpad. This is a bugfix release:

  • Handle paths with whitespace in style_checker_command. See the README file for details on configuration for this.
  • Workaround for annoying but harmless warning on Windows when trying to remove a temporary file.

Hopefully it won’t take too long before 0.2 is released with some new features. I’m planning to add support for a configuration file to be committed to the branch, similar to .bzrignore. If such a file (.bzrstylecheck) exists, that file will be used as configuration for that branch. If not the configuration locations valid in 0.1.x will be used. Not sure about the format of .bzrstylecheck yet, but I will add support for different commands depending on file type, something that’s not possible for the same branch with todays’ configuration.

Update: There seems to be a a draft for a specification suggesting that such configuration files should be put in a directory called .bzrmeta. Bazaar Style Checker will of course follow this convention.
