walkmod : A Tool to Apply Coding Conventions

August 14, 2014 By: Tori Wieldt

You know that applying coding conventions, specially in big projects, simplifies the project maintenance. And there are custom IDE features to configure a set of saving options to apply automatically a given code style. There are also open QA tools (e.g FindBugs, PMD) to check a set of metaprogramming rules, but these never fix the code. This is the reason why Raquel Pau and her team have been working hard to create walkmod, a metaprogramming framework to establish and share set of open coding conventions.

walkmod is a free, open source tool that allows you to design custom coding conventions and apply them as a chain of coding transformations into source files. walkmod supports 3 kind of transformations: (1)templates, (2)scripts or (3)plugins in Java.
