file:line:column:message error output by default for build, lint, and
breaking change errors. It can also output errors in JSON. As such, it is easy to write
editor integrations that provide real-time feedback to developers.
Right now, we only provide Vim integration, however we expect to cover Emacs, VS Code, and potentially Intellij in the near future. Please contact us if you are interested in any of these.
This will result in individual files being linted on save via
buf check lint --path. Note that
some lint checkers are dependent on checking multiple files at once, for example the lint checkers
PACKAGE_AFFINITY category, so we still recommend your CI setup runs
buf check lint.
Buf will be executed in your current directory, which results in your configuration being read from your current directory.
