GNOME GUI for coala

Short Description

“coala is a simple COde AnaLysis Application. Its goal is to make static code analysis easy while remaining completely modular and therefore extendable and language independent.

I will be mentored by Lasse Schuirmann

These bears can be as simple as checking for indentation as opposed to far more complex ones like Code Duplication Detection. So far, coala offers an easy to use CLI interface wherein users are prompted for input and actions, as and when required. This accounts for a streamlined and hassle-free experience. My project proposes to build a GUI for coala, which I believe will have the following benefits:
