Analyze project code quality with Code Climate CLI

This example shows how to run Code Climate CLI on your code by using\ GitLab CI and Docker.

First, you need GitLab Runner with docker-in-docker executor.

Once you setup the Runner add new job to .gitlab-ci.yml:

codeclimate:
  image: docker:latest
  variables:
    DOCKER_DRIVER: overlay
  services:
    - docker:dind
  script:
    - docker pull codeclimate/codeclimate
    - docker run --env CODECLIMATE_CODE="$PWD" --volume "$PWD":/code --volume /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock --volume /tmp/cc:/tmp/cc codeclimate/codeclimate init
    - docker run --env CODECLIMATE_CODE="$PWD" --volume "$PWD":/code --volume /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock --volume /tmp/cc:/tmp/cc codeclimate/codeclimate analyze -f json > codeclimate.json
  artifacts:
    paths: [codeclimate.json]

This will create a codeclimate job in your CI pipeline and will allow you to download and analyze the report artifact in JSON format.
