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 and Visual Stuio Code integration, however we expect to cover Emacs 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 lint --path. Note that
some lint rules are dependent on checking multiple files at once, for example the lint rules
PACKAGE_AFFINITY category, so we still recommend your CI setup runs
Buf will be executed in your current directory, which results in your configuration being read from your current directory.
Visual Studio Code
The Visual Studio Code extension can be downloaded from the in-editor extension browser under the name "Buf", or manually via the extension page.
It requires Buf to be installed.
The extension runs
buf lint --path on save and as a result,
it will not catch all potential lint errors. We recommend that your CI setup runs
Buf will be executed in the root of your workspace, which results in your configuration being read from the root of your workspace.
