Need Some Help?

For help with Haml-Lint, check out their documentation.

If you're running into a Code Climate issue, first check out our [engine documentation][#usage] and look over any existing issues, as your question may have already been covered. If not, please open an issue and we'll see what we can do to help.


Since this isn't a publicly released engine yet, you will have to build the engine from this repository. You will need the Code Climate CLI installed, as well as the git and make commands.

  1. If you haven't already, install the Code Climate CLI.
  2. If you do not have Git, install it.
  3. If you do not have make, install it. On a Mac, you can get it with XCode. On Linux, you can get it in your package manager (the build-essential package in Ubuntu or base-devel package on Arch linux). On Windows, you probably need Cygwin or the Linux Subsystem for Windows.
  4. Make the engine's Docker container with make.

If the container fails to build, file an issue.

You should now be able to use the engine through the Code Climate CLI as a development-level engine. To use it on your project, first navigate to your project's directory. Then use the following command:

$ codeclimate analyze -e haml-lint --dev


Like other Code Climate engines, you configure this one through the use of a .codeclimate.yml file in your project's root directory. If you don't already have one, you can use the codeclimate engines:enable haml_lint command to generate a basic .codeclimate.yml file with the engine enabled.

If you don't care to tweak your configuration, you should now be able to run the engine with the analyze command:

$ codeclimate analyze

To tweak the linters that Haml-Lint will run, follow this pattern in the configuration file:

    enabled: true
      file: my_custom_haml_lint.yml
        enabled: false
          - lib/project_name/**/*.rb
          - spec/**/*.rb
  - ignored_directory/

Most of the configuration lives under the engines.haml-lint key. The options are as follows:

  • config.file - The Haml-Lint configuration file you want to use as a base.
  • checks.<LINTER_NAME> - Configuration for the linter given by <LINTER_NAME>. You can pass any of the configuration options for the linter in the base Haml-Lint format. See the Haml-Lint documentation for more information.
  • Global configuration like exclude_paths is also included in the engine's configuration. See the Code Climate documentation for more information.


This engine is versioned based on the versioning scheme of Haml-Lint. It uses the version of the Haml-Lint gem that is installed as the base version and then adds a build number. For example, the first time the engine is built and released for the 0.23.1 version of HamlLint, the engine's version is 0.23.1-1. If there are any bugs that are fixed in the engine without updating the Haml-Lint version, the build number will be incremented (e.g. to 0.23.1-2).
