I am looking for direction on how to go about creating a new package for linter. I have looked over the linter API, but it lacks much implementation. Inversely, looking through examples provides me with material too far over my head.
Though from what I have gathered, regex can be used to locate and process errors. I saw one example where a compiler was used; however, I’d rather avoid that as I do not have a compiler for my own code.
I really would appreciate any guidance with this. Unless someone else does it before me, I will make sure to post a full example with documentation for anyone else who would follow this same path.
Some of the things I am looking for are:
- What is the purpose of “use babel”?
- What is a “promise”?
- A detailed structure of a linter implementation. As in, it includes how to extend the base. (This will be part of my end goal)
- There are probably some other main concepts I am leaving out.
If you can help with any part of this, I would really appreciate it. I am still pretty fresh to Atom and coffeescript. so I probably ended up including broader concepts than just implementation of linter.
