Configuration

DCM is designed to be flexible and configurable for your use case. You can turn off every rule and run only with enabled metrics calculation or have both rules and metrics enabled.

To configure DCM, add a dart_code_metrics entry to analysis_options.yaml:

analysis_options.yaml
dart_code_metrics:
extends:
- ... # configures the list of preset configurations
metrics:
- ... # configures the list of reported metrics
metrics-exclude:
- ... # configures the list of files that should be ignored by metrics
rules:
- ... # configures the list of rules
rules-exclude:
- ... # configures the list of files that should be ignored by rules
anti-patterns:
- ... # configures the list of anti-patterns
note

This configuration is used by both CLI and the analyzer plugin.

Basic config example:

analysis_options.yaml
