Add Google C++ Style checker for Flycheck.

If you're want to write code according to the Google C++ Style Guide , this will help a great deal.

I recommend that the package google-c-style also installed with.


As usual, from MELPA.

In your Cask file:

(source gnu)
(source melpa)

(depends-on "flycheck-google-cpplint")

In your init.el:

(eval-after-load 'flycheck
     (require 'flycheck-google-cpplint)
     ;; Add Google C++ Style checker.
     ;; In default, syntax checked by Clang and Cppcheck.
     (flycheck-add-next-checker 'c/c++-cppcheck
                                '(warning . c/c++-googlelint))))

If you not use cppcheck. You have need to change flycheck-add-next-checker.

(flycheck-add-next-checker 'c/c++-clang
                           '(warning . c/c++-googlelint))



$ wget
$ sudo mv /usr/local/bin/
$ sudo chmod 755 /usr/local/bin/

You should be able to run the command in Emacs. If above location,

(executable-find "") ; => "/usr/local/bin/"


 '(flycheck-c/c++-googlelint-executable "/usr/local/bin/"))

Configure for

 '(flycheck-googlelint-verbose "3")
 '(flycheck-googlelint-filter "-whitespace,+whitespace/braces")
 '(flycheck-googlelint-root "project/src")
 '(flycheck-googlelint-linelength "120"))
