ROS 2 supports various linters, e.g. also cppcheck. Those can be run on every build an therefore provide a timely and continuous feedback.

You mean the [ament_lint integrations](https://github.com/ament/ament_lint), right?

Coverity on the other can currently not be triggered automatically. A one time analysis is only of limited value. But if someone would automate the process that would be very helpful.

Absolutely, the faster the feedback loop the better. (The only thing you are missing in comparison to an IDE integration of tools is immediate feedback for effective learning how to code without introducing defects.)
