This module provides a functionality to enforce formatting or in the future other QS checks.

This module provides the following function:

   CHECKS <check1> [<check2> [...]]

This function will create a pre-commit hook which contains all the given checks.


  • CLANG_FORMAT With this check enabled the git clang-format tool will be used to make sure that the changed parts are properly formatted. In case the changes are not properly formatted an error message with the command to preview the formatting changes and to format the files in place will be displayed. This tool will reuse the exsting .clang-format file, in case you want to use the one provided by ECM you can include include(KDEClangFormat) which will copy the file to the source dir. It is also recommended to reformat the entire project before enforcing the formatting using this commit hook.

Example usage:

kde_configure_git_pre_commit_hook(CHECKS CLANG_FORMAT)
