Can searches or spell checks be run at specific times/events?



This is part question and part feature request. For thesis writing, I’m looking for an Atom package (or pointer to any other text editor or plugin or tool) that allows one to specify searches (find operations) which are executed at certain times or upon certain events.

For example, upon launching a specific Atom project, one may want to be displayed the search results for [ ] within a project, to keep find to-do items to complete. Or, after lunch (1pm, 1st activity after 30min inactivity, etc.) one may want to run the spell checker or some other minor tasks while digesting.

Thanks for any ideas & hints!


All of the things you mention are possible. I don’t know if anyone has written a package for them, but for super customized stuff you could always add some code to your that did these things.
