I believe Clang-Tidy as a project is huge enough I believe to warrant its own subforum (sorry I am unsure what the proper terminology here) next to ClangD and the Static Analyser.
(More so due to me being someone who is interested in Tidy-related things, but I cannot subscribe to “search expressions” and there are no related tags.)
+1 to this suggestion – clang-tidy is an active project and people will have RFCs specific to it at some point (like when adding a new module to house checks, potentially contentious checks, etc).
@tonic Could you please advise us on what is the way to move forward with such a request? Is there a more formal petition form that needs to be filled, or a threshold of “support” that needs to be gathered first?
I have created the category. Please let me know if you would like the description changed:
clang-tidy is a clang-based C++ “linter” tool. Its purpose is to provide an extensible framework for diagnosing and fixing typical programming errors, like style violations, interface misuse, or bugs that can be deduced via static analysis. clang-tidy is modular and provides a convenient interface for writing new checks.
