Latest commit caea6b8 Dec 23, 2018


This linter plugin for Linter uses languagetool for spell and grammar checking.



$ apm install linter-languagetool

from the command line or install linter-languagetool using the preferences.

You do not need to worry about dependencies as they will be automatically installed by apm.


  • You can use a local languagetool server by setting the preference to the path of languagetool-server.jar The server will automatically be started. Note that you need to use languagetool version >=3.6 for the local server.
  • Additionally, you can store your mother tongue to enable languagetool's checks for false friends and common mistakes.
  • For improved error detection, download and install the n-gram data as outlined here. The Atom plugin provides a preference to pass the n-gram path to the languagetool server.
