The Atom editor uses a really nice top-level base linter API to display markers, tooltips, and global messages of linters.
Linter is a base linter provider for the Hackable Atom Editor. Additionally you need to install specific linter for your language. You will find full list below in Available linters section.
It provides a top-level API to its consumer that allows them to visualize errors and other types of messages, easily.
I think this is a really great visual implementation for linters and hence, I’ve started to work on a similar implementation for cloud9.
Therefore, I was wondering whether anyone might like to join the development project? Likewise, I’m keen to hear what cloud9 might think about this as well!
