This is an extension for Flycheck. It implements a minor-mode for displaying errors from Flycheck right below their reporting location, using overlays.
It also supports displaying related errors from Flycheck checkers that support them. Here is an example of this behavior for Rust borrowing errors:
(See also flycheck-rust for automatically setting up your Rust projects for Flycheck)
flycheck-inline.el somewhere to your
load-path and add the following to
your init file:
(with-eval-after-load 'flycheck (add-hook 'flycheck-mode-hook #'flycheck-inline-mode))
This will turn on inline errors in all buffers where Flycheck is activated.
You can enable
flycheck-inline in a subset of languages supported by Flycheck
by conditionally enabling
flycheck-inline-mode in the hook above, since the
mode is buffer-local.
Alternatively, if you do not use the setup above, you can use the command
global-flycheck-inline-mode to enable
flycheck-inline-mode in all current
and future Flycheck buffers.
The colors used to display the error/warning/info messages are inherited from
the compilation faces. You can customize them through
M-x customize-group RET flycheck-inline RET.
If you wish to change the delay before errors are displayed, see
You can change the way overlays are created by customizing
is an example using quick-peek to display the overlays which adds bars
(setq flycheck-inline-display-function (lambda (msg pos err) (let* ((ov (quick-peek-overlay-ensure-at pos)) (contents (quick-peek-overlay-contents ov))) (setf (quick-peek-overlay-contents ov) (concat contents (when contents "\n") msg)) (quick-peek-update ov))) flycheck-inline-clear-function #'quick-peek-hide)
