Codelyzer

A set of tslint rules for static code analysis of Angular TypeScript projects.

You can run the static code analyzer over web apps, NativeScript, Ionic, etc.

How to use?

Angular CLI

Angular CLI has support for codelyzer. In order to validate your code with CLI and the custom Angular specific rules just use:

ng new codelyzer
ng lint

Note that by default all components are aligned with the style guide so you won't see any errors in the console.

Angular Seed

Another project which has out of the box integration with codelyzer is angular-seed. In order to run the linter you should:

# Skip if you've already cloned Angular Seed
git clone https://github.com/mgechev/angular-seed

# Skip if you've already installed all the dependencies of Angular Seed
cd angular-seed && npm i

# Run all the tslint and codelyzer rules
npm run lint

Note that by default all components are aligned with the style guide so you won't see any errors in the console.

Custom Setup

You can easily use codelyzer with your custom setup:

Installation

npm i codelyzer@~2.0.0 tslint@4.0.0 typescript@2.0.9 @angular/core@2.4.0 @angular/compiler@2.4.0 rxjs@5.0.1 zone.js@0.7.2

A. Using codelyzer package in PATH

Create the following tslint.json file like:

{
  "extends": [ "codelyzer" ],
  "rules":{
    "directive-selector": [true, "attribute", "sg", "camelCase"],
    "component-selector": [true, "element", "sg", "kebab-case"],
    "use-input-property-decorator": true,
    "use-output-property-decorator": true,
    "use-host-property-decorator": true,
    "no-attribute-parameter-decorator": true,
    "no-input-rename": true,
    "no-output-rename": true,
    "no-forward-ref": true,
    "use-life-cycle-interface": true,
    "use-pipe-transform-interface": true,
    "pipe-naming": [true, "camelCase", "sg"],
    "component-class-suffix": true,
    "directive-class-suffix": true,
    "templates-use-public": true,
    "no-access-missing-member": true,
    "invoke-injectable": true,
    "template-to-ng-template": true
  }
}

To run TSLint with this setup you can use one of the following alternatives:

  1. Install codelyzer globally npm install -g codelyzer

  2. Run TSLint from a package.json script by adding a script like tslint . to your package.json, similar to:

    "scripts": {
    ...
    "lint": "tslint .",
    ...
    },
    

    Then run npm run lint

B. Using codelyzer from node_modules directory

Now create the following tslint.json file where your node_modules directory is:

{
  "rulesDirectory": [
    "node_modules/codelyzer"
  ],
  "rules":{
    "directive-selector": [true, "attribute", "sg", "camelCase"],
    "component-selector": [true, "element", "sg", "kebab-case"],
    "use-input-property-decorator": true,
    "use-output-property-decorator": true,
    "use-host-property-decorator": true,
    "no-attribute-parameter-decorator": true,
    "no-input-rename": true,
    "no-output-rename": true,
    "no-forward-ref": true,
    "use-life-cycle-interface": true,
    "use-pipe-transform-interface": true,
    "pipe-naming": [true, "camelCase", "sg"],
    "component-class-suffix": true,
    "directive-class-suffix": true,
    "templates-use-public": true,
    "no-access-missing-member": true,
    "invoke-injectable": true,
    "template-to-ng-template": true
  }
}

Next you can create a component file in the same directory with name component.ts and the following content:

import { Component } from [email protected]/core';

@Component({
  selector: 'codelyzer',
  template: `
    <h1>Hello {{ nme }}!</h1>
  `
})
class Codelyzer {
  name: string = 'World';

  ngOnInit() {
    console.log('Initialized');
  }
}

As last step you can execute all the rules against your code with tslint:

$ ./node_modules/.bin/tslint -c tslint.json component.ts

You should see the following output:

component.ts[4, 13]: The selector of the component "Codelyzer" should have prefix "sg" (https://goo.gl/cix8BY)
component.ts[12, 3]: Implement lifecycle hook interface OnInit for method ngOnInit in class Codelyzer (https://goo.gl/w1Nwk3)
component.ts[9, 7]: The name of the class Codelyzer should end with the suffix Component (https://goo.gl/5X1TE7)
component.ts[6, 18]: The property "nme" that you're trying to access does not exist in the class declaration. Probably you mean: "name".

Editor Configuration

Note that you need to have tslint plugin install on your editor.

Codelyzer should work out of the box with Atom but for VSCode you will have to open Code > Preferences > User Settings, and enter the following config:

{
  "tslint.rulesDirectory": "./node_modules/codelyzer",
  "typescript.tsdk": "node_modules/typescript/lib"
}

Now you should have the following result:

VSCode Codelyzer

Enjoy!

Below you can find a recommended configuration which is based on the Angular Style Guide.

{
  // The rule have the following arguments:
  // [ENABLED, "attribute" | "element", "selectorPrefix" | ["listOfPrefixes"], "camelCase" | "kebab-case"]
  "directive-selector": [true, "attribute", ["dir-prefix1", "dir-prefix2"], "camelCase"],
  "component-selector": [true, "element", ["cmp-prefix1", "cmp-prefix2"], "kebab-case"],

  "use-input-property-decorator": true,
  "use-output-property-decorator": true,
  "use-host-property-decorator": true,
  "no-attribute-parameter-decorator": true,
  "no-input-rename": true,
  "no-output-rename": true,
  "no-forward-ref": true,
  "use-life-cycle-interface": true,
  "use-pipe-transform-interface": true,

  // [ENABLED, "SUFFIX"]
  // Where "SUFFIX" is your custom suffix, for instance "Page" for Ionic 2 components.
  "component-class-suffix": [true, "Component"],
  "directive-class-suffix": [true, "Directive"],
  "templates-use-public": true,
  "no-access-missing-member": true,
  "invoke-injectable": true
}

Advanced configuration

Codelyzer supports any template and style language by custom hooks. If you're using Sass for instance, you can allow codelyzer to analyze your styles by creating a file .codelyzer.js in the root of your project (where the node_modules directory is). In the configuration file can implement custom pre-processing and template resolution logic:

// Demo of transforming Sass styles
var sass = require('node-sass');

module.exports = {

  // Definition of custom interpolation strings
  interpolation: ['{{', '}}'],

  // You can transform the urls of your external styles and templates
  resolveUrl(url, decorator) {
    return url;
  },

  // Transformation of the templates. This hooks is quite useful
  // if you're using any other templating language, for instance
  // jade, markdown, haml, etc.
  //
  // NOTE that this method WILL NOT throw an error in case of invalid template.
  //
  transformTemplate(code, url, decorator) {
    return { code: code, url: url };
  },

  // Transformation of styles. This hook is useful is you're using
  // any other style language, for instance Sass, Less, etc.
  //
  // NOTE that this method WILL NOT throw an error in case of invalid style.
  //
  transformStyle(code, url, decorator) {
    var result = { code: code, url: url };
    if (url && /\.scss$/.test(url)) {
      var transformed = sass.renderSync({ data: code, sourceMap: true, outFile: '/dev/null' });
      result.source = code;
      result.code = transformed.css.toString();
      result.map = transformed.map.toString();
    }
    return result;
  },

  // Custom predefined directives in case you get error for
  // missing property and you are using a template reference
  predefinedDirectives: [
    { selector: 'form', exportAs: 'ngForm' }
  ],

  // None = 0b000, Error = 0b001, Info = 0b011, Debug = 0b111
  logLevel: 0b111
};
