TAP Reporter

Posts a pack of TAP logs , zipped as a GitHub Action artifact

  • A separate TAP file for each processed linter

Warning: When TAP_REPORTER is true:

  • Performances: all linters with CLI lint mode list_of_files are switched to file mode, so linter is called ont time per file to analyze
  • Scope: all linters with CLI lint mode project are deactivated

For those reasons… why not having a look at SARIF reporter, that doesn't have those issues ?

Click on Artifacts then click on MegaLinter reports


Open the downloaded zip file and browse linters TAP reports
