This page describes the coding style and rules to adopt when developing CDash.

Coding Style


  • Tabs are not allowed. Tabs should be replaced by two spaces
  • Indentation of curly braces should be as follow:
 if($test == $test2)


In order to support MySQL and PostGreSQL the date and time should use the following defined variables:

define("FMT_TIME", "H:i:s"); // time define("FMT_DATE", "Y-m-d"); // date define("FMT_DATETIME", "Y-m-d\TH:i:s"); // date and time define("FMT_DATETIMETZ", "Y-m-d\TH:i:s T"); // date and time with time zone define("FMT_DATETIMEMS", "Y-m-d\TH:i:s.u"); // date and time with milliseconds

Count(*) queries

 SELECT count(*) FROM ...

is used, then a column named "count(*)" is expected to contain the result. This is not portable and the following query should be used instead:

 SELECT count(*) AS num FROM ...
