A linter for Atom using Cppcheck.


Cppcheck needs to be installed (or at least available). Its path can be configured.

Without Linter this package is rather useless.


The package settings are available at: Edit > Preferences > Packages > linter-cppcheck

You can configure the location of the Cppcheck executable. The default is to look for cppcheck in your $PATH environment variable. In most cases this should ‘just work’.

For Windows users: Cppcheck’s executable is probably not available as cppcheck in your %PATH%. On Windows you will most likely have to configure the path yourself in the Executable field (e.g. C:\Program Files\Cppcheck\cppcheck.exe, but it may vary).

You can also configure which checks Cppcheck should perform. If you want to know more about these checks please see the Cppcheck Manual or run man cppcheck.


This package is really a tiny amount of glue between other great pieces of software, namely the Linter package, the atom-linter module and — of course — Cppcheck.
