Android Lint Summary

View your Android lint issues with style.


  • Combines multiple projects into one output. You no longer need to check each and every of your subprojects' lint results for errors.
  • View all your issues nicely formatted in your terminal.
  • Default arguments that do what you probably want them to.



Grab the latest build for your platform from the releases page.

If your platform isn't there, you can build it yourself with stack:

$ git clone
$ cd android-lint-summary
$ stack setup
$ stack install


$ cd my-android-project
$ ./gradle lint
# Search in your current working directory
$ android-lint-summary
# Or search for a different pattern
$ android-lint-summary -g '**/lint-summary*.xml'
# Or point directly to a file
$ android-lint-summary app/build/outputs/lint-summary.xml
# Or read from stdin
$ android-lint-summary - < app/build/outputs/lint-summary.xml
