Running Sonarqube on Mac

Good morning, Guys!

Welcome back! 🙂 Finally i have time to write something on my wordpress again 😀

So, this time i’m going to write about Sonarqube and install it on my mac. First of all, what is Sonarqube? Sonarqube is one of open source platform for continuous inspection of code quality. Sonarqube has some features that could make our development will run better, for more information about its features you may check here.

Next, You can install Sonarqube on your Mac, Windows, or linux system. You can check the requirements here. To download Sonarqube you can check here.

After download the archive file and extract it, go to your Sonarqube home directory /bin/[your environment]/

To run Sonarqube service, you can run ./ start if everything is ok, it will start the service and run on port 9000. Now you can try to open browser and access it.

So that is just the Sonarqube service that can show your code quality. Now, we need a sonar-scanner to scan our code and some sample project.

Go here to download the scanner and follow the instruction there to install it.

Now, you can try to open to your project directory and add the file in it. After that, run sonar-scanner to run the scanning process.

Here my sample project from sonarqube’s website:

After execution is success, now let’s check our Sonarqube website:

You can see that our sample project is passed the quality gate provided by Sonarqube. You can see each detail of the scan result. If you find something wrong with the code or your code is not passed the test, go tell your developer to fix it 😀 🙂

So, guys, that’s all for today. Next time i will try to make a post about integrate Sonarqube with Jenkins Server so we could make a better continuous integration in our development.
