Recently there's been a flurry of compiler plugins aimed at finding potential errors, or forbidding certain patterns, in Scala: Linter and its forks, Wart Remover, ScalaStyle. [Abide](https://github.com/scala/scala-abide) aims at providing a common frame for all such efforts.

Abide integrates with Sbt, IDEs (via compiler plugins) and soon with Maven. Users can add project-specific rules, and additional rule libraries can be imported from any ivy or maven repository. Rules have access to the fully type-checked tree and may use quasiquotes for easy AST pattern matching.
