Support for writers


Besides spellchecking, which is – god knows why hardcoded to en_US – I could imagine some other supporting features for writers.

  • Grammar check
  • Style check (eg. often used or uncommon words get highlighted)
  • Thesaurus

Is anybody working on this? I think there are some bricks around to start with, eg. the NLTK.



Try linter-write-good

It does some simple checks on text for things like passive-voice, weasel words, etc. You might look into the original write-good library, which this plugin wraps, for a full list of capabilities!
