.mega-linter.yml file

MegaLinter configuration variables are defined in a .mega-linter.yml file at the root of the repository or with environment variables. You can see an example config file in this repo: .mega-linter.yml

Configuration is assisted with autocompletion and validation in most commonly used IDEs, thanks to JSON schema stored on

  • VSCode: You need a VSCode extension like Red Hat YAML
  • IDEA family: Auto-completion natively supported

You can also define variables as environment variables. - In case a variable exists in both ENV and .mega-linter.yml file, priority is given to ENV variable.
