This library provides a [flycheck][] checker for [Kotlin] files.


You'll need Emacs 24 for flycheck, so the recommended way to get flycheck-kotlin is as a package from the [MELPA][melpa] repository. The version of flycheck-kotlin there will always be up-to-date.

If you insist on doing things the hard way, first ensure flycheck is installed, then download this code and add the directory to your Emacs load-path.

Then, in your init.el:

(eval-after-load 'flycheck
    (require 'flycheck-kotlin)

Make sure that the ktlint binary is present on Emacs' exec-path. See ktlint site for details.


When flycheck is enabled (e.g. with global-flycheck-mode), kotlin-mode buffers will be automatically checked using this checker.
