Installing the linter takes a few steps in your terminal.
Most linters depend on a "base" linter package that provides general line highlighting and error message functionality.
pto open the command palette.
install packto bring up
Settings View: Install Packages And Themes. Press
base linterin the search box and press the Install button next to linter (the one described as "A Base Linter with Cow Powers.")
linter-rorybotin the Install Packages and Themes search box and press the Install button next to linter-rorybot.
The next time you launch Atom, the package linter-rorybot should be active, and your Markdown and HTML files should be linted according to Shopify style.
By default, linter-rorybot works on the following languages:
source.gfm, text.html.basic, text.html.ruby, text.plain
You can add custom languages to this list if you normally work with other kinds of files, for example, adding
source.ruby will enable the style guide linter for Ruby (
Note that adding a custom language overwrites the default list, so unless you add the default languages in your custom list, the linter will only run on the custom languages you've specified.
You may have to restart Atom for changes to your language list to take effect.
Good catch. Let us know what about this package looks wrong to you, and we'll investigate right away.
