“The idea is that Android programming is still in its infancy compared to the Java world. The Android community needs more robustness in Android apps and it looks like a good idea to build on the Java world experience and use its best tools for Quality Analysis.”
Here are some tools, frameworks and configurations that are already integrated:
- Lint, PMD, checkstyle, findbugs, …
- gradle settings
See the complete list on the github page. Stephane also provided a short “How to”, for every tool. I really like the overview of different Android testing tools and the effort Stephane put into this page.
