Build Status

This linter plugin for SublimeLinter provides an interface to Lint.jl lintserver. It will be used with files that have the “julia” syntax.

This plugin will launch and maintain a juila daemon subprocess running Lint.jl lintserver to avoid recompiling Lint.jl on every invocation. When you exit sublime text the subprocess will kill itself. The first time you lint the lintserver will have to compile and start up which usually takes about 30 seconds.


SublimeLinter 3 must be installed in order to use this plugin. If SublimeLinter 3 is not installed, please follow the instructions here.

Python3 must be installed to run and maintain the daemon subprocess. Make sure python3 is included in your PATH.

Linter installation

In order for this plugin to be functional you must have a Lint.jl installed. To set it up do the following:

  1. Install Julia. Make sure julia is included in your PATH.

  2. Add Lint to Julia


Note: The first lint will take ~30 seconds because julia has to compile the Lint.jl lintserver.

Note: This plugin requires Lint.jl version 0.2.1 or later.

Plugin installation

Please use Package Control to install the linter plugin. This will ensure that the plugin will be updated when new versions are available. If you want to install from source so you can modify the source code, you probably know what you are doing so we won’t cover that here.

To install via Package Control, do the following:

  1. Within Sublime Text, bring up the Command Palette and type install. Among the commands you should see Package Control: Install Package. If that command is not highlighted, use the keyboard or mouse to select it. There will be a pause of a few seconds while Package Control fetches the list of available plugins.

  2. When the plugin list appears, type julialintserver. Among the entries you should see SublimeLinter-contrib-julialintserver. If that entry is not highlighted, use the keyboard or mouse to select it.


For general information on how SublimeLinter works with settings, please see Settings. For information on generic linter settings, please see Linter Settings.

  5. Be patient. ;-)

Please note that modifications should follow these coding guidelines:

  • Indent is 4 spaces.
  • Code should pass flake8 and pep257 linters.
  • Vertical whitespace helps readability, don’t be afraid to use it.
  • Please use descriptive variable names, no abbreviations unless they are very well known.

Thank you for helping out!
