A package to show flycheck and flymake's error(s) after jumped to the point. (Those of you who don't know about Emacs 26's new flymake take a look:


Note (for existing users)

flycheck-tip-avoid-show-func variable become obsolete. Please set flycheck-display-errors-function variable to ignore if you want to avoid echoing error message on minibuffer.

Also previously flycheck-tip supported popup error message at point, but it was obsoleted because there is official flycheck's support: flycheck-pos-tip:


You can install this package via MELPA


(define-key your-prog-mode (kbd "C-c C-n") 'flycheck-tip-cycle)
;; To avoid echoing error message on minibuffer (optional)
(setq flycheck-display-errors-function 'ignore)

If you use both flycheck and flymake, you can use combined function that show error by popup in flymake-mode or flycheck-mode.

(define-key global-map (kbd "C-c C-n") 'error-tip-cycle-dwim)
(define-key global-map (kbd "C-c C-p") 'error-tip-cycle-dwim-reverse)

Do M-x flycheck-tip-cycle or push its key when error occurred on flycheck-mode. Then you can move next error. If next error isn't exists then the cursor moves to first error if it's exists.

Keep errors on notification area

If you build Emacs with D-Bus option, you may configure following setting. This keeps the errors on notification area. Please check error-tip-notify-timeout to change limit of the timeout as well.

(setq error-tip-notify-keep-messages t)


Maybe this package should be renamed like error-tip or something
