My recent move from Flycheck to
Flymake has proven to be a
solid choice because the Emacs built-in syntax checker has yet to let me down.
And since by now I am sure my love for
project.el is absolutely obvious, could
I miss the opportunity to make these two underappreciated gems shine together?
Honestly, though, the credit here goes all to Protesilaos Stavrou. His Flymake setup made me aware of a neat way to limit the use of Flymake to the places I actually need it.
All I had to do was adapt it to my preferences:
(defun mu-flymake-mode-activate () "Activate `flymake-mode' only in my projects." (project--ensure-read-project-list) (let ((known-projects (project-known-project-roots)) (pr (or (locate-dominating-file "." ".git") default-directory))) (if (and (eq buffer-read-only nil) (member pr known-projects)) (flymake-mode 1) (flymake-mode -1))))
I then hooked this little function to
everything was good to go.
project.el must be required before running
otherwise Emacs will complain about
project--ensure-read-project-list not being
