Build Status

Performs incremental quality reporting for the bigfiles gem. BigFiles is a simple tool to find the largest source files in your project; this gem plugs in with the 'pronto' gem, which does incremental reporting using a variety of quality tools.

If you add text to a file in the top three largest files, and the total number of lines for those three is under 300, you'll get an alert.

If you've already configured a different threshold using the metrics/bigfiles_high_water_mark (e.g., using the quality gem), pronto-bigfiles will use that threshold instead of 300.


Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'pronto-bigfiles'

And then execute:

bundle install

Or install it yourself as:

gem install pronto-bigfiles


This is typically used either as part a custom pronto rigging, sometimes as part of general use of the quality gem.


After checking out the repo, run bin/setup to install dependencies. Then, run rake spec to run the tests. You can also run bin/console for an interactive prompt that will allow you to experiment.
