Download via Git from
git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:Kitware/KWStyle.git
You can visit the KWStyle webpage at http://kitware.github.io/KWStyle/
See Utilities/Maintenance/BuildKWStyle/README. Use the script Utilities/Maintenace/BuildKWStyle/BuildKWStyle.sh if desired. Otherwise:
- Configure with CMake
- Default options should do just fine
If you are lucky enough to be using Linux, (or a *nix system), you can do:
mkdir ~/bin/KWStyle cd ~/bin/KWStyle ccmake ~/src/KWStyle
for convienence do:
if you want to install it in $HOME/local
and also configure it to build for Release:
finally build and install with:
make make install

Build Time and Test Time Checks
Rerun CMake in your ITK build.
Turn ON the flag:
Indicate where the KWStyle executable is located. For example, if you installed it as suggested above, then set:
and finally, set your favorite format for error reporting.
The options are:
KWSTYLE_USE_VIM_FORMAT KWSTYLE_USE_GCC_FORMAT KWSTYLE_USE_MSVC_FORMAT
This will allow you to run KWStyle from your development environment and process the style errors just the same way that you manage compilation errors. Please note that the vim format is also compatible with Emacs.
For example, if you are a fortunate enough to be a user of Vim, you can do:
cd $ITK_BINARY_DIR vim
and from inside the editor type
if any errors are reported, the relevant files will be open inside the editor, just the same way as if C++ compilation errors had occurred during a normal build.
If you are not familiar with the Vim mode for "edit-compile-edit cycle", do yourself a favor and read:
It will change your life.
An additional target for coding style is
You can also run the Style checks as tests by doing from the command line:
ctest -R KWStyleCodeTest -V
Commit Time Check
A Git commit-time check will automatically be performed on all indexed changes if KWStyle is available in the shell PATH environmental variable.
If the KWStyle executable is not installed to a location in the PATH, its location can be specified by running
git config hooks.KWStyle.path ~/local/bin/KWStyle
for example, in the source tree.
The KWStyle commit check can temporarily be disabled with
git config hooks.KWStyle false
and re-enabled (don't forget to re-enable!) with
git config hooks.KWStyle true
